Homemade Dishwasher Soap
I make my own soap by using 1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda and 1/2 cup Borax 20 Mule Team. I use about 2 tablespoons in the dishwasher compartment. I've also added Citric Acid (from either canning products or tang) if needed. To tell if Citric Acid is needed, look at your silverware. If it seems to be a little gray then check your dishwasher book and it will tell you what to add and how much. My silverware has actually been sparklier with this than the expensive dishwasher tabs.
I also put white vinegar in the compartment for Jet-Dri. My dishes are sparkly clean ..... This is just one more small way to beat the high cost of everything in the grocery stores.
Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!!!
