Yay!! Ive been looking for something that would work for dishes that is green and cheaper! Homemade dishwasher detergent. Note from another pinner - this really does get the white film off water glasses. I dont know that Ill ever go back to purchasing expensive dishwashing detergent again.#Repin By:Pinterest++ for iPad#
The only stain remover you will ever need! 1 part Dawn dishwashing liquid 2 parts hydrogen peroxide I poured the cleaner right on the spots and used an old toothbrush to make sure it really got into the carpet. I let it sit for maybe 30 seconds and then I blotted it with a wet towel. carpet, clothing, etc
Dishwasher soap: Mix together equal parts baking soda, borax (available in the laundry aisle). Use 1-2 Tbs. per load. Each load will cost pennies. Also, use vinegar in the jetdry well instead of the expensive stuff.
- 1 cup Washing soda - 1 cup Borax - ½ cup salt - 2 pkts unsweetened lemonade koolaid Vinegar and dishwashing detergent Mix first four ingredients in an airtight container. Add 1 heaping TB with 3 drops dishwashing detergent and a splash of vinegar to every load.
WHAT YOU NEED: 1 Container with an airtight lid 4 sponges cut in half 1 cup of your favorite fabric softener 2 cups water WHAT TO DO: Mix the water and fabric softener into a plastic container. Add the cut sponges so they can soak in the mixture. When ready to use, squeeze the excess liquid from 1 sponge and place into the dryer with your wet clothes. Run the dryer cycle as normal. Once complete place the now dry sponge back into the container of liquid for use next time.
Homemade Fabric Softener (My clothes are SO soft - softer than with store-bought, and smell fresh and clean. The scent of the conditioner is definitely there. This recipe makes a lot of softener, so I only made half.)
Granite (or any counter-top) shine/cleaner ~ Take a spray bottle, fill it about 1/8th full with rubbing alcohol, add a drop of Dawn dish washing soap, a few drops of scented oil (optional, but makes it smell so good), fill the rest of the way with water, shake together, and you’re good to go! It makes your granite (or any counter-top) shine and feel so smooth at a fraction of the price by lucinda
