How to Make Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

We all know how expensive dishwasher detergent can be so here is a way to make you own dishwasher detergent with this simple recipe.

What’s needed
1 Cup washing soda (crystals)
1 Cup of Borax
Air Tight Container

Here’s what you need to do

  1. Place all the ingredient for the detergent into a food processor bowls.
  2. Now process until the washing soda is reduced to powder.  It’s as simple as that!
  3. Store your home dishwasher detergent in an airtight container
  4. Use between 1 to 2 tablespoons per load in your dishwasher. If you live in a hard water area you will most likely need 2 tablespoons per load.

Still use Rinse Aid in your dish washer? Try white vinegar instead, it cheaper and does the same job.

Share and Enjoy !

  1. I love this idea – and thanks for the tip about white vinegar. I haven’t bought rinse aids in a while because they’re so expensive – but I’ve missed them. I have a big jug of white vinegar, though – does it leave a taste of vinegar on anything?

  2. That is an interesting idea. I’ll start stocking Borax. On rainy days when I run out of dishwashing detergent, I’ll have a project and then I can wash my dishes. Thanks.

  3. Excellent and cost effective way of making dishwash detergent.Will try it and if it works I will be saving a big amount.:)
