    mousehouse: eco-friendly dishwasher powder... and a sherbet recipe

  • Heather Fugeman

    Eco-friendly Dishwasher Powder 1 Cup Washing Soda (from supermarket) 1 Cup Baking Soda 1/4 Cup Salt 1/4 Cup Citric Acid Mix together (powderise in a food processor). Use 1 tablespoon per load. Way cheaper than the brought stuff, less than 5 cents a load. HINT - use white vinegar in the rinse aid dispenser.

    Sweet!! Don't forget to take ur nottom rack out at least once a yr & take the drain part out. It all pops off easily & w tweezers or something u can pull the junk out w start getting it out. I was shocked at how much hair & crap I pulled out. Have a paper towel close! But it will run better!! }¡¡{

Use Vinegar instead of Jet Dry as rinse aid in the dishwasher..makes perfect sense

  • Erika

    What about the taste?

  • Nora M

    @ Nicole, The vinegar is not left on the dishes so there is no taste or smell. Give it a try, It really does work well. P.S. All dishwasher are made for Soft Water NOT hard water. I also recommend a water test to find out if you need a water softner

    Thank you Nora!

  • Sue St Clair

According to one pinner: Holy Cow!!! This stuff is AWESOME!!! I only made 1/2 as much (I didn't have as much lemonade as I thought, oops). I will not be buying dishwasher soap ever again!!!! My tupperware looks brand new again!

Everyone needs this information in case you or your kids ever put dish soap in the dishwasher!!

    What? No! Do you know what is in fabric softener? I would never put that anywhere near my dishes.

    Beth Marie - Vinegar works great too! You can also take all of the dishes out before de-foaming it. :)
