Last year I shared a recipe for Homemade Laundry Detergent.  We’ve been using the laundry detergent for well over a year now and it costs me about $7.00 for 6 months of detergent.  That’s an incredible deal!

I’ve been looking for a Homemade Dishwasher Detergent that we loved as much as the laundry detergent.  We finally found one!  We’ve been using it for several months now so I wanted to share it with you!

It’s so simple…and for the most part it uses the same primary ingredients as the laundry detergent.  However, while the laundry detergent is liquid, the dishwasher detergent is powder.

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent
1 cup washing soda
1 cup borax
2 packages unsweetened lemonade mix

Mix all together and keep in an airtight container.  Use 2 tsp in the main detergent hopper and 2 tsp in the pre-wash detergent hopper.

We’ve been very pleased with the results!  If you decide to give it a try, I hope you are too!

What about you?  Do you use a homemade dishwasher or laundry detergent that you are pleased with?
