This works great!!! Here is what you need!
1 cup borax
1 cup baking soda
1/4 cup salt
2 lemonade kool-aid packets (I used store brand, almost half the price as kool-aid brand)
30 drops of lemon juice
Mix together in a sealed container and wahlaaaaaaa.
I had to run to Wal-Mart to return something for my daughter, so I decided to pick up the ingredients there. They had all the ingredients and it cost about $8.00 and I can probably make it 10 times for that total. I would say it cuts your price to about 1/10th of the average dishwasher soap. It is SO easy! It made me feel great and my dishes turned out just as clean or even cleaner than if I used Cascade or Finish.
Couple of side notes:
Borax is found with the laundry detergent.
I also found the big baking soda in the laundry detergent aisle.
Must use lemonade kook-aid mix, other flavors could stain your dishes.
Use about a tablespoon in each compartment.
Have fun and get happy when you’re saving so much money!!!!!!
