Homemade Automatic Dishwasher Soap for Pennies

by Brenda
(Yuba City, CA)

I got tired of buying expensive dishwasher soap, and the bargain brands just didn't work for me in my old dishwasher.


So, I did some research online, and found a handful of homemade recipes. I tried out all of them, and found one that worked better than the rest. It does a great job getting my dishes clean, cuts grease, and doesn't leave streaks.

Best of all, it's easy to make and literally costs pennies per load:

Dry Homemade Dishwasher Soap
1 cup Borax
1 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1/2 cup Kosher salt
5 packets unsweetend lemonaid drink mix (it's the ascorbic acid that you're after)

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store in a tight container. Use only 1 Tbsp per load. (This is super concentrated, there are no fillers.)

Finally, fill your rinse aid receptacle with white vinegar to get that super clean shine on your glasses.
