|Sparkly clean dishes for nothing!|

I found a recipe for dishwasher detergent! It’s really super complicated, so get your pens ready, okay? Here it comes:
Mix equal parts of Borax and washing soda.
That’s it. Seriously. It works just fine, comparable to the big name detergents. In fact, it actually works better than the generic stuff from Fred Meyer (never again, that stuff was awful). The dishes are totally clean, the glasses are sparkly, no streaks or residue or anything.
I mixed the two ingredients (which I still have a ton of by the way, despite several batches of laundry detergent and household cleaner) and have them in a plastic container under the sink. You use the same amount that your dishwasher requires for any powdered detergent, about 1/3 cup for our machine.
Dishwasher detergent for less than a penny a load. Gotta love it.
