Homemade Dishwasher Detergent - Recipe And How To Video
(Household Management 101)
I have never used homemade dishwasher detergent, but instead I have used generic Great Value brand dishwasher detergent (that is the Walmart brand).
However, I came across this video from Amber, who now blogs at Classic Housewife
, where she explains how she makes her own homemade dishwashing detergent.
Her recipe is as follows:Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 cups borax
- 1 1/2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup table salt
Combine these dry ingredients together into a container, and shake until mixed thoroughly.
This makes four cups of homemade dishwasher detergent, total. Use 1/4 of a cup per load, meaning that you have made enough for 16 loads of dishes from this recipe.
She also warns that it is not as strong as some other commercial dishwasher detergents, so you must be even more careful about scraping and pre-rinsing your dishes before running the dishwasher.
So, anyone already using this or another homemade dishwashing detergent recipe, and want to share how it works?
Anyone have any problems using such a recipe, such as it not working well with your dishes, or what I am more afraid of, messing up your dishwasher?
