Dishwasher Detergent

Learning to make the commercial products you currently buy saves you quite a lot of money, especially over time.  Inline of my life of building my own home store, this recipe will lead you to a more self-reliant life ~ one recipe at a time.

DIY home products saves you a lot of money over time and you get the satisfaction of controlling the ingredients you family comes in contact with.
  • 1 cup borax
  • 1 cup washing soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid (Can substitute with unsweatened lemonade drink mix)
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt (for scrubbing action)
  • * 2 Tbsp Rice (Optional)
  1. Simply mix all the ingredients and keep in an airtight container.
  2. Use 1 Tbsp per load
