    Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Revised

    by Jillee
    I fear my hot water bill is going to be SKY HIGH next month! For the last couple of weeks I have washed and re-washed and re-washed AGAIN….load after load of dishes….trying to figure out just the right “recipe” for clean and CLEAR dishes! After my first post about making your own Homemade Dishwasher...

      Powdered Dishwasher Detergent/Scouring Powder: 1 cup Washing soda or Baking soda (I’ve seen many recipes that use use whatever you have on hand or a combination of the two.) 1 cup Borax (Borax and baking soda/wash are both natural disinfectants and mild abrasives.) 1/4 cup Kosher salt (reduces the effects of hard water) 1/4 cup citric acid (available at brewing places or Or as an alternative you can use the same amount of Fruit Fresh or two packets of Lemonade-Flavored Kool-Aid, ONLY lemon and ONLY unsweetened!) Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of this mixture to your dishwasher detergent compartment along with 3 drops of any dishwashing liquid. Do not use more than three drops. The dishwasher will overflow if you use too much dish soap! Then splash 1/2 to 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher and start the machine.
