Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

Does any body have a good recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent? Thanks.

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

I mix 1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda (Arm and Hammer) and 1/2 cup sea salt. Use one tbsp for prewash and wash, and use vinegar in the rinse dispenser. It works great. (03/05/2010)

I use a similar recipe adding citric acid for shine. It also makes it smell like a lemon drop. Into a 32 oz bottle with screw top (clear vinegar bottle) I add:

  • 1/2 c borax
  • 1/2 c super washing soda
  • 1/2 c salt
  • 3 envelopes unsweetened lemon drink mix (Dollar General sells them for around 10 cents each)

Fill bottle nearly to top with warm water, cap, and shake well. I leave it sitting out to further dissolve. Shake well before each use.

I haven't bought dishwasher detergent in months. I use vinegar in my rinse dispenser. This solution smells really nice, too. (04/23/2010)
