Hi everyone and Happy April!
This month I’m going to try another home made experiment from all natural ingredients; this time for dishwasher detergent. My Mom actually actually showed this one to me! (Thanks Mom!)
There are 4 simple ingredients:
- Borax: I purchased mine online at well.ca but it is available at most natural food stores. Make sure to store in a safe place away from your children. (1 cup)
- Washing Soda: available at some grocery stores and all natural food stores. I got mine at Kardish. (1 cup)
- Kosher Salt: available at the grocery store. (1/2 cup)
- Citric Acid: available at some grocery stores and all natural food stores. I got a bag at Kardish for about $1.50, enough to make two batches of this dishwasher detergent. (1/2 cup)
I made this 3 cup batch of detergent for about $4.78. With approximately 48 tbsp in three cups, that works out to almost 10 cents per load. Not bad!
I’ll keep you posted on how our dishes turn out. The first load will be running later tonight!
Until next time!
