I am making this for the first time this weekend. I have the Washing Soda from the Homemade Laundry Detergent. Will buy the Borax at Fred Meyer also.
Homemade Dishwashing Detergent
(this is a DRY powder)
- 1 cup borax
- 1 cup washing soda
- 3-5 drops of tea tree oil (already have it on hand)*
I put it all in an empty plastic container and shake it up. I put one tablespoon in each compartment (for a total of 2 tbsp per load).
*Optional - I did add this. I bought the natural 100% tea tree oil in the health food dept of Fred Meyer. It was about $10 for the little bottle but, it will last forever and has a ton of household uses. Everything from an all natural antiseptic for cuts/wounds to blemish control for your face and some companies add it to their shampoo to help keep the scalp as clean as possible and promote healthy hair growth. So, there you have it. =)
