Another DIY!!

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  :)

How did test 2 go Amanda. I am always interested in home remedies and other diy's.

Eh... it started leaving a film on the dishes. I'm not sure if it's because the boys were using too much or if it's the detergent...
