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.

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent 1 cup Borax 1 cup Washing Soda 1/2 cup Coarse Salt 1/2 cup citric acid (15 packets of unsweetened lemon kool-aid will work!) Mix all ingredients in a container. Use 1 tbs per load. It is also recommended to add vinegar to your rinse aid dispenser to alleviate cloudiness.
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!
