Homemade Dishwasher Detergent {for spot-free dishes}

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.

    Does this work well in cold water? Our tankless water heater only goes up to 120, and our dishwasher doesn't heat up the water. Also, how well does it work for grease? Thanks!

    The borax helps cut through grease. We keep water temp. pretty low and have had no problems. Also, we have abysmally hard water.
