Make Your Own Dishwasher Detergent

I was at my aunt’s home and she showed me her sparkling glasses and they were sparkly!  Then she shared with me that she had started making her own dishwasher detergent – I had to have the recipe and give it a try.

This recipe is so easy and you may already have the ingredients in your home, if not you can find them at your closest grocery store!

To help your dishes and glasses shine – you can add some Lemi Shine rinse. This is non-chemical and safe for septic systems.

    I really think the Lemi Shine adds some of the sparkle. : ) Such an easy cleaning recipe, and so much cheaper and better. No chemical residue on the dishes!!
