Easy Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

In my ever growing quest to find ways to stretch the money around here I have finally found a detergent for the dishwasher that works!

1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/4 Kosher Salt
2 packets of lemonade flavor koolaide mix
Lemon essential Oil

Mix everything except the lemon oil and vinegar together and store in an airtight container. Use 1-2 tablespoons of this mixture when you need to run the dishwasher and splash vinegar and a few drops of lemon essential oil on the bottom of the dishwasher and voila!!

The dishes come out nice and clean and we have some pretty tough well water here!
There ya go~Enjoy!

  1. How to make dishwasher detergent :
    Some people with hard water in their homes find that homemade detergent works well at first, but then need to add some vinegar, to their loads (in the Jet-dry receptacle) to keep the effectiveness level up. The benefit of making your own dish detergent is that you can tailor it to your specific needs
