Last night Dave and I tried out some new dishwasher detergent – homemade! I found a recipe for the detergent on Pinterest that used Borax and Washing Soda. We already had a box of each of these from when I made laundry detergent (something I need to make again this weekend). The recipe calls for equal parts Borax and Washing Soda. Before we mixed up a giant batch, we wanted to do a test run. I combined 1T. of Borax and 1T. of Washing Soda and set the dishwasher to go.
The dishes were clean! Clean dishes, cheaper detergent, no chemicals, and earth-friendly. Lots of things to like about that! I’ll definitely mix up a big batch for us to keep on hand.
What have you d.i.y.’ed lately?
