It is super easy to make and it worked like a charm. I included links to the ingredients online so you can see what they look like. Both borax and washing soda are easily found in most grocery and home improvement stores. I have also read that you can exchange the washing soda with baking soda, which would make this even cheaper to make.
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda
- Mix together the borax and washing soda and store in a plastic container with a lid. I used an old dishwasher capsules container:
- When ready to use, put 2 tablespoons of mix into the detergent spot in your dishwasher.
- Pour white vinegar into the rinsing agent spot. The vinegar helps to prevent residue and spotting.
- Run dishwasher.
