Silver Post Medal for All Time! 293 Posts

cubes dryingI decided to make my own dishwasher detergent cubes because they are cheaper and healthier. Have you read some of the ingredients in the store bought kind? That residue lingers on your dishes and you are ingesting trace amounts every day. No thank you!

  11. Place in a container and use 1 per load of dishes. I picked this glass jar up at a thrift shop.

  13. If your water is especially hard, you may want to add vinegar and coarse salt to the prewash. This should aid in reducing film and hard water spots.

**If these do not fit into your dispenser very well, I would suggest pouring your liquid into 36 cubes and using 2 per load. Otherwise, just break in half. :)

What an awesome idea! Even better than the 'ecologically sound' ones that use plastic wrappers! Good for you!
