I'm a stay at home Mom of two children and I have the unique privilege of being able to homeschool both of them. I am a stepmother to two older daughters one who is going to college. I enjoy shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning, organizing, running, clowning, making soap, playing piano and lately painting with ASCP paint!

Homemade Dishwash Detergent

I made this Sunday night before I was put on crutches again and told to rest it as much as possible....several washes later I still love this very much!

There are 2 different recipes....this is the one I tried and I made it kinda small in case I didn't like it....I tripled the recipe....

1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax
4 packets unsweetened lemonade
1/4 cup salt (kosher recommended)

 I use one tablespoon and then use vinegar as the rinse agent.  They perform beautifully.  These ingredients I already have in my home because I make my laundry detergent etc.

There is another recipe that I will be trying after I'm through with this batch:

1 box of Borax (4 lbs)
1 box Washing Soda (55 oz)
3 cups of Epsom Salt
24 packets of lemonade.....

So there ya go! Enjoy!
