Happy Monday All!
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.
I am here today to share with you something AMAZING!
I am a freqenter of MoneySavingMom.com.
It is a fabulous websiter dedicated to helping people save money which we need to do!
On there she highlighted a blog that discussed how to make your own dishwasher detergent.
Is it just me or is detergent really expensive, even if you use coupons! Some people I know have made their own and said that it was successful. So I went out and purcased what I needed.
Here is the breakdown in what you need to make your own:
1 Cup of Borax (Target and Walmart do carry this!)
1 Cup Baking Soda (I used Washing Soda)
1/2 Cup Kosher Salt
1/2 Cup Citric Acid (You can purchase "Fresh Fruit" in the canning isle. It is a produce protector or you can puchase 15 packets of lemon Kool-aid, the unsweetened kind, and that works as well.)
Mix all ingredients in a container and voila! dshwasher detergent!
Use 1 Tbsp per load PLUS add some vinegar to the rinse aid portion of your dishwasher (this keeps the plastic from getting a cloudy look) and wash away!
I have done it several times and am very happy with the product!
