Dishwasher Detergent

This stuff can add up quickly.  Here is a tip I found online for homemade detergent:

Mix 1 tablespoon borax with 1 tablespoon baking soda. Add it to your dishwasher and you are ready to go.

Seems pretty simple.  When we run out of our current stuff, maybe I will try this...


  1. I just bought a box of Borax a few weeks ago to do this same thing. I am hoping it saves money, and I feel better about using fewer chemicals on our dishes. I also hope it actually works : )!!

  2. Jenna-let me know how it goes! I really want to try it.
