Dishwasher Detergent Recipe
- 3 cups Borax
- 3 cups Baking Soda
Mix the Borax and Baking Soda together. Store in a large mason jar or plastic container and put under sink (or cupboard that is near your dishwasher).
What to do: Put 2 tablespoons of homemade dishwasher detergent into your dishwasher’s detergent compartment and run dishwasher normally.
Why does this work?
Borax = natural disinfectant
Baking Soda = natural disinfectant
Why is this a good option?
- Other detergents emit chlorine gas (this homemade detergent does not!)
- Stain Remover
- Water Softener
- Borax sells under the name 20 Mule Team. You can find this on the laundry aisle!
- Label the mason jar or storing container of detergent with ingredients.
- Keep detergent out of reach of children and pets.
