Dishwasher Soap recipe
· 1 cup borax
· 1 cup washing soda
· 1/2 cup citric acid
· 1/2 cup kosher salt (for scrubbing action)
Use 1 Tbsp per load
Each batch yields 24 ounces of detergent.
You can find borax and washing soda in the laundry aisle of your grocery store. I ordered the citric acid on Amazon via the link provided. I substituted Sea Salt for kosher salt but that is the only deviation I made from the original recipe.
For a DIY rinse agent, simply fill the compartment with white vinegar.
If you do make your own laundry detergent & dishwasher detergent and store in similar containers I suggest labeling them as such. It’s hard to tell them apart once mixed unless you keep in distinct places in your home.
Our dishes are clean, shiny and look great! And my mind is at ease knowing we are saving money and not introducing unnecessary chemicals into our home. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out for you!
