I made my own dish detergent last night. Oh, yes I did.
This morning, I was chatting on the phone with a galpal, raving about this all natural, CHEAP, homemade dish detergent- I actually said, "Leslie, I kid you not- my dishes have never been cleaner."
Wow. I am officially a housewife/mom/huge dork.
Whatever, my dishes are sparkling and with this suuuuper easy peasey recipe, yours can be too! :)
First, find a pretty bottle. (I found mind at St. Vinnys). And yeah, its pretty, but note the opening- its small. I had to rig up a funneling device to get my powder in there. I used a Target ad, and it didn't work out so great... huge spills. So friends, get a big bottle.
After you have a bottle, get some borax, baking soda and kosher salt.
You can create as big or as small of a batch. It's up to you and your dish washing needs. I created a big batch.
1 cup Borax
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup kosher salt
= some cheap, kick butt, dish washing detergent.
