Homemade Dishwasher Detergent {for spot-free dishes}

DIY CLEANERS 05.26.15
While cleaning out my kitchen for an upcoming move, I ran across the ingredients for homemade dishwasher detergent that had been sitting around unused.

The recipe is simple, the result is even better. It cleans your dishes and there won't be a residue left in the dishwasher.

What could be better.

All you need:

2 C. Borax

2 C. Baking Soda

6 oz. LemiShine (available at Target, Walmart, and most grocery stores)

Mix together. Use 1 T. per full load.

    I followed a tip from book similar to these using Borax - the next day my washer was dead. The repairman said, not to use that or Baking soda. They fix and bubble and can mess up the inner workings of your machine. Had to buy a new one. :( Costs more to

    My repairman told me it's not the quality of the detergent but the quantity. He said use ONLY 2 teaspoons.
