Homemade Dishwasher Detergent
- 2 c borax
- 2 c Arm & Hammer washing soda
- 2 c lemi shine*
- 1 c kosher salt
You can get the borax, washing soda and the lemi shine in the laundry aisle and the kosher salt in the baking aisle.
The Verdict: This is a perfect example of why I like to try things for awhile before I give an opinion. It started out great. My dishes were very clean and sparkly. But after about 2 weeks it stopped working. (one batch lasted me about 6 weeks and that was doing a load a day) A lot of the dishes on the top rack would have a strange greasy film on them that I would have to scrub by hand to get off.
Plus the mixture was very picky about where it needed to be stored. I tried keeping it in an airtight container under the sink but after a few days it became rock solid from the humidity so I had to make another batch. I kept that batch on top of the fridge and that kept it from becoming a solid mass.
So there you go. Once again I have saved you time and money by testing something for you. Your welcome.
Have a Happy New Year.
