Hard Water Stains? Dishwasher detergent that works! Homemade dishwasher detergent. Note from Pinner - this really does get the white film off water glasses. I don't know that I'll ever go back to purchasing expensive dishwashing detergent again.
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.
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!
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!
DIY dishwasher detergent. 1 c borax 1 c washing soda ½ c citric acid ½ c kosher salt (for scrubbing action) Use 1 Tbsp per load (you can use a heaping tablespoon if you feel the need, but we do not). Each batch yields 24 ounces of detergent. We recommend storing in a container you were going to dispose
