I have always had the desire to make my own laundry detergent (and that is coming soon) but I figured if I was doing laundry detergent, why not do dishwasher detergent!
It was super easy and affordable!
1 cup mule borax (we found this at our local grocer – Target did not carry it (that we could find) and it wasn’t at Sprout’s)
1 cup washing soda (same as the mule borax; it was found at our grocer)
1/2 cup kosher salt (if you notice in the picture, we used normal table salt because (a) hubby said it wouldn’t make a difference and (b) we couldn’t locate our purchased kosher salt – either way, I haven’t noticed a difference)
1/2 cup citric acid (this was found at Sprout’s)
Container (I had kept our empty formula containers, but a mason jar would suffice)
Mix all ingredients together in your desired container.
To use: Use 1 tablespoon per dishwashing load
- 1 cup mule borax
