Some people make their own cleaning products to save money and some to use more environmentally safe ingredients. Whatever your motivation, making your own cleaning products can be satisfying and beneficial not only to you personally, but to the environment around you as well. Try making a homemade dishwasher cleaner out of common household products, and you may never go back to commercial cleaning products again.
Mix together 1 cup of borax and 1 cup of washing soda.
Fill both sides of the dishwasher receptacle with the borax and washing soda mixture.
Place 2 tbsp. of white vinegar into the dishwasher's rinse aid receptacle.
Run the dishwasher using your preferred cycle.
