Homemade Dishwasher detergent

Last year I made a batch of homemade powdered dishwasher detergent also. It turned out great and works very well. It lasted a year so I just made another batch!


2 cups Borax
2 cups Washing Soda
1 Cup Kosher salt
10 packages unsweetened lemonade (citric acid)
A container to store it in

Mix all ingredients in a container that you are going to store it in.

Put a 1 Tbsp measuring scoop in the container.

Each load takes 1 Tbsp (put in the powder cup of your dishwasher). 

Can put white vinegar in the rinse aid dispenser for streak-free dishes.

One batch lasts 9-12 months and averages 6 cents per load!

TIP: Mine got a little bit clumpy the first time I made it. Now I'm saving the little absorbing plastic things that come in some medications and plan to put 2-3 in the container to avoid the clumps!
