homemade dishwashing detergent
Yay!!! Finally a recipe that works for homemade dishwasing detergent!! I haven't used my dishwasher in weeks because I refuse to use that store bought chemical loaded up-smells your house like bleach mess and I am too cheap to buy a healthy alternative. So I had been searching online and last night a poster on diaperpin.com ( my favorite cloth site) said she uses equal parts Borax and baking soda with vinegar in the rinse-aid dispenser. I used about 1/2 Tbs of Borax and soda (made sure there were no clumps in it) and put vinegar in the little dispenser. My dishes came out beautifully! Yay!!! I am so excited. I don't mind handwashing at all, but sometimes you have things that you want to make sure they get really clean and santitized...so Yay, I am excited that I have this really easy, cheap, no bleach smell recipe. Sweet!
