I wasn’t being frugal when I tried this recipe – I was tired of having to prewash dishes before adding them to the dishwasher. After finding this worked so well I wanted to share it.
Not only did the dishes come out clean but the cost is minimal.
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup borax
1 tablespoon citric acid
I added the above ingredients to a coffee creamer container I recycled. Shake all the ingredients together and use just as you would powder dishwasher detergent.
