Homemade Dishwasher Soap

Homemade Dishwasher Soap

I was desperate for an inexpensive dishwasher option that actually works. I have tried a few, with little success.  After playing with a few recipes and combining the best of each one, I finally found one that works!

Try it out and let us know what you think. 


1 cup Borax

1 cup Washing Soda

1/2 cup Citric Acid

15 drops Lemon Oil (or 5 packs unsweetened lemonade koolaid)

Mix well, store in a jar with a lid. Use 2 tbsp in dishwasher.

*If you have issues with spotty glass, add a cup of vinegar on the top shelf of the dishwasher. I haven’t had this issue though.
