Homemade Dishwasher Detergent!

Looking for an economical and safe substitute to store-bought dishwasher detergents?  This recipe only has 4 ingredients and is super easy to make! And it's all-natural!  Total cost is about $1.10 for 40 ounces.  Only need to use 1-2 tablespoons per load,  that's 3 cents per load!  Another bonus is the small container, saves on shelf space as well as money. Just think, one batch will last over a month!


1 cup super washing soda (yellow box in picture)
1 cup Borax (white box in pic)
1/2 cup kosher salt (navy box in pic)
10 drops lemongrass essential oil

Mix washing soda, Borax, and kosher salt together.  Add lemongrass drops, whisk to blend.
Use 1-2 Tbsp per load in dishwasher.
(For best results, I would recommend using apple cider vinegar as a rinse agent.)

Okay, so you're not the DIY kinda girl? No worries!  Grandma Bea's will make it for you!  Choose from the 16oz (30 loads) for $2.50 or the 32oz (60 loads) for $5.
