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: ~1Cup Borax ~1 Cup Baking Soda (or washing soda....find in the laundry detergent isle. Some ladies find the Washing soda works better....Baking soda has worked great for us!) ~1/2 Cup Kosher Salt ~1/2 Cup Citric Acid
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.
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!
