This is a very simple recipe for dishwasher detergent. This is the only detergent I use in our dishwasher, and I've never had a problem with it. It cleans just as good as store bought detergents.
All you need to make it is~~
equal parts of Borax and washing soda (NOT baking soda!). Mix together and put in a container of your choice! Fill your dishwasher as you would with store bought detergent. That's it! You do need to make sure you use a rinse aid or your dishes will be cloudy. Another frugal tip~use vinegar as your rinse aid. I've never bought rinse aid since finding this tip!
Try it and start saving money!
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God"
1 Corinthians 10:31
