How to Make Dishwasher Detergent

The following Best Savings Tip comes from reader, Carrie:

We have a recipe to make our own dishwasher detergent. We never noticed a difference in how clean our dishes were, but my pocketbook noticed the savings when we started making our own! Here is the recipe:

  • 1 cup, Borax
  • 1 cup, Baking Soda
  • 1 cup, Kosher Salt

Mix all ingredients together. Use about 1.5 tbsp per load.

You can use white vinegar in place of your rinse agent to save money, too.
