Dishwasher Soap: I used LemiShine instead of citric acid. Makes 3c, stores fine in a quart jar. Note: use plenty of vinegar in that rinse aid spot!! Not enough and it doesn't do nearly as well.

This works great, I used the citric acid in my mix because i dont use any artificial ingredients. I found it at Wally Mart by the canning supplies for $2.95. I did add some Organic white vinegar to the rinse dispenser to help with some of the spots. I am pinning to save $$ because she has SO many great ideas on how to save you money but also clean your house green! GREAT BLOG!
Wonder how this would work with our hard water. I'm tired of the spots and residue everywhere since the switch to no phosphates in our dishwasher detergents, and willing to try just about anything.
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!
Homemade Dishwasher Detergent...already had the salt, borax and super washing soda on hand, so after buying the Kool-Aid, I spent under $1. Dumped a splash of white vinegar in the bottom of my dishwasher. After trying it for the first time last night, I'm happy to say my dishes came out as clean as they do with Palmolive!
I might try this since I am trying to save money by not buying diswashing detergent. I hate washing dishes!
Homemade dishwasher detergent: 1 cup Arm & Hammer washing soda 1 cup Borax 1/2 cup salt 4 packages Lemonade Kool-Aid Stir together all ingredients in a bowl and break up any clumps. Place in an airtight container. Use 1 tablespoon per dishwasher load, or 2 for heavily soiled loads.
