Do you have a dishwasher? Do you hate constantly having to buy detergent for it? Of course those little action-pacs, or whatever they're called, get the job done. But boy, are they expensive! Especially if your house is like mine where you can easily run the dishwasher twice a day.
•3 1/2C. Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
•12pkg. lemonade flavored Kool-Aid
•1 1/2C. Epsom salt
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Place in a large airtight container for storage.
To use: Add 1Tbsp. dishwasher detergent to soap dispenser.
I still use a store bought rinse aid with mine since I've noticed that vinegar just doesn't seem to do a very good job with this detergent.
* This detergent will harden over time. Just scrape off the top & continue to use.
* This recipe can easily be doubled, just use a whole box of both the Borax & the Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (saves from counting so many C's).
