d.i.y. dishwasher detergent

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 verdict?

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?

  1. So cool! Thanks for sharing this. I am going to ask Steven if he wants to give it a try.

    We have been buying 7th Generation stuff for cleaning our dishes and clothes. This is even better!

    1. Oh! I didn’t answer your question. Steven is very DIY about all house projects. Recently, he installed a new light in the garage.

  2. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
