I have now used the homemade dishwasher soap that I mentioned here about 15 times or so.
I found several recipes on Pinterest. Basically this is the recipe most used was this:
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda
1/2 cup Kosher salt ( or any kind of salt really)
I mixed then all together and use 1 Tablespoon per load. I also use Lemi Shine because we have hard water. Some of the recipes called for unsweetened lemonaide packets. I didn't use that since I already use Lemi Shine.
My thoughts on the homemade dishwasher soap is it works ok. The main thing is to be sure and mix it well each use. I will continue to use what I have then I will decide after that whether I will go back to buying dishwasher soap. Normally I buy the Walmart Great Value brand powder which I love and works great. It also last me along time. So I will have to think on this some more as I continue to use up what I have made.
