Say what? Yes, you read that right...homemade dishwasher detergent. Compliments of Pinterest. It inspires all kinds of DIY activities. So, when I saw this one for detergent, I wanted to give it a try, b/c I hate spending a lot of money on cleaning stuff. That money could be used on something important. Like shoes. (A girl has to have her priorities in order.)
Young House Love and is super simple. It is also made from ingredients that are healthier for you and the environment.
2 cups Borax
2 cups Baking Soda
4 small packs of lemonade (the ones without sweetener)
I have used this a few times now, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It works great! Better than the name brands I have been using. There has been no yucky residue, no spots, everything comes out super clean. I'll definitely keep using this, and all the ingredients pictured were about 5 bucks. It only takes a small amount, so it will last a long time (and I use my dishwasher everyday). Bottom line? This homemade, natural cleaning product is a keepaaah.
Happy Friday y'all!
