Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

I never buy dishwasher soap anymore. I buy a large box of 20 mule team borax, a large baking soda, and a large bottle of white vinegar. I keep them on hand just for dishwasher soap.


I mix 2 cups of borax, 1 cup of baking soda together and keep in a large jar. I add this to the dishwasher dispenser as usual. Then I add white vinegar to the rinse dispenser.

It lasts quite a long time and is certainly much cheaper than buying it at the store all the time and I almost never run out.

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

It's good to know about making your own dishwasher detergent, but I don't know if those ingredients are cheaper. I use the cheapest powdered DW detergent I can find, usually WalMart or Aldi brands.

I get very good results from this and a smaller box lasts a very long time since I use the DW only 2-3 times a week and I fill the cups about 1/2 full. A 45 oz. box costs approx. $2.25. (09/21/2009)
