One of our goals this year to pay of our debt and finally be debt free. My income has changed quite a bit in the past year, due mostly to the economey. This has made us more aware of our financial situation. I ran out of dishwasher soap yesterday, the washer was already loaded. I was hoping that I could us the laundry soap I had made as it's low suds, we all know what happens when you put dish soap in the washer right lol. So I was searching the web for a solution. I found a great blog in the process.
Budgets are the New Black
Here is the receipe for dishwasher soap
Powder Dishwasher Detergent: 2 Tablespoons/load, divided
1 cup Borax
1 cup Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Lemi Shine
I did not have Lemi Shine so I put the juice of 1/3 of a lemon in the bottom of the washer along with the rest of the ingredeants.
I also put vinegar in the rinse compartment. Then I ran it on normal. The dishes are clean and there is no residue at all on them.
I am going to use this from now on. Not only did this save me a trip to the store, which is 15 miles away, but also the gas and the time I would have spent.
