This is a SUPER EASY recipe for a natural homemade dishwasher soap.
1 cup washing soda
1 cup borax
2 packs of lemonade FlavorAid ((no sugar)
Use 1 tbs per load and white vinegar as a rinse aid. (The vinegar, also helps with the gross mildew smell that washing units develop over time.)
This was the fastest mix I’ve ever made, seriously 2 minuets- max! This works so much better than the leading store bought soaps and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper! I was really skeptical at first but it smells great and most of all it works FANTASTIC too. If you wanted you could even add in a few drops of essential oil for a touch more of fragrance.
Overall I would say this cost about 7 dollars for the supplies and made roughly 35 loads (about 2qts).
If you do that math (I’m awful at math) this batch costs around .05 cents per load. Talk about savings! I even had PLENTY of supplies left over.
