Homemade Laundry Detergent
Dishwasher Rinse Aid = white vinegar + couple drops food coloring - Here’s my fav detergent recipe: Mix together 1/2 cup liquid soap, (I use Dr. Wood - similar to Dr. Bronner’s - except the price!) 1/2 cup water, 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 1/2 cup white vinegar. Blend well and store in a plastic bottle. 2 T. will do for one load of dishes.
Dishwasher SOAP that actually works! It's a combination of liquid soap and oxygen bleach, with a vinegar chaser as a rinse aid.
DIY Liquid Dishwasher Detergent: 2 cups vegetable-based castile soap (Trader Joe's), ½ cup water, 3 drops essential oil of your choice, Vinegar. Mix the first three ingredients in the bottle and shake well. Shake each time before using. Use 2 tablespoons per load. Put vinegar in the rinse aid compartment.
