I have been trying many different variations of dishwasher soap recipes and I have finally found one that works great. We spend a lot of money on the name brand soaps because we have such hard water and I have been determined to find a recipe that would work and be way more frugal. So here it is :)
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
1 packet of lemonade flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid
I pour all of the ingredients in a mason jar and give it a shake to get all the lumps out. I use 2 Tablespoons per load but this can vary depending on your water.
