***I am not a photographer! I hope to get a little better throughout this blogging process, but I apologize for the not-so-fantastic pics***
Also, I must admit I have tried to make dishwasher detergent several times, with no success. It has taken me about a year, to perfect this concoction here. A lazy year that is, with each failure I got a little discouraged and did not try again for awhile. I have tried 3 or 4 different recipes, and read several blogs.
And then finally, I read this natural recipe on one of my favorite blogs right now!
I of course tweaked the recipe a bit. I also made a smaller batch, to make sure it worked first.
Here is my FANTASTIC Dishwasher Detergent Recipe:
- 1/4 cup Borax
- 1/4 cup Super Washing Soda
- 1 tbsp. Kosher Salt
- T tbsp. Lemi-Shine
~Combine all ingredients in Recycled container with sealable lid (I used a pickle jar)
~Use a heaping tbsp. at time of wash, then 3 small drops of dawn on top (SMALL DROPS)
~Add 1/2 to 1 cup Vinegar in bottom as rinsing agent
- My dishes are even more clean than using commercial detergents!
- I am saving money
- The Lemi-Shine gives it a nice clean smell
