DIY Dishwasher Detergent 

Dishwasher Detergent Recipe


2 parts borax

2 parts washing soda

1 part citric acid

1 part salt

essential oils – I’m doing 10 drops Purification and 5 drops lemon.

Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
Use 1 tablespoon per load as needed.

For an extra boost, add a few drops of dishwashing liquid (only a few!!!) to the powder before closing the soap container in the dishwasher.

You can also add white vinegar as the rinse agent, though honestly, I forget this most of the time and it still works.
