So, here is the latest and greatest DIY project that I whipped up in about 2 minutes tonight!
Homemade dishwasher detergent!
Super easy... 1C baking soda, 1C Borax, 1/2C salt, 10-12 drops of essential oils.
Mix it together and store in an airtight container. Use 1Tbsp in the main compartment and an extra 1/2Tbsp in the other one.
I used it tonight and it seemed to work just fine! I was a little skeptical that I wouldn't love it, since we typically use dishwasher gel here, but there was no gunk on the glasses or bowls in the dishwasher! I consider that a success.
I'll be running another load in the morning... hopefully test number 2 works as well as the maiden voyage :)
