Has anyone tried this from Make Your Own Dishwasher Soap & More?
- 1 Cup Washing Soda
- 1 Cup Borax
- 2-3 drops of essential oil
Add all ingredients to food processor bowl or blender and process until they are powder. Store in a canister or coffee can which is airtight. Use 1-2 tablespoons per load depending on the hardness of your water. If you are getting spots or residue try using a little less. The first time I used it I put too much in and it did leave a residue. You can also substitute white vinegar for Rinse Aide.
I used an apple pie fragrance oil that I had used for making candles and when the dishwasher runs, the whole kitchen smells like apple pie. It is so much nicer than the acrid smell of commercial dishwasher powder.
I think I’ll try it.
