Sunday, March 19, 2006 Dishwasher Detergent Alternative

Apparently, there is one useful product you might already have in your laundry cupbard that works GREAT as a dishwasher detergent replacement.

BORAX! Take between 2-4 teaspoons of Borax (more for harder water areas) and dissolve in about 1/4 cup of plain tap water. Use as a liquid dishwasher detergent alternative.

:) I'm going to try this tonight and report back to all of you. Tomorrow I'm going to try mixing the Borax with baking soda to see if that works even better! If you try it, please post here...

P.S. I have tons of cleaning recipes on my site at Cleaning Recipes I AND at Cleaning recipes II

P.P.S. Fill the rinse agent compartment with undiluated white vinegar. :) Works great!
