    Have you tried this yet? Does it do a good job?

    I use vinegar in my “rinse aid” instead of jet dry and it does the same job. Dishes come out clean and spot free. Will have to try this out.

    I just went to a class on Green Cleaning. How to make your own, The lady went to college to study plant bio. In the mean time she learned how to make home made cleaning supplies. She has been making them for 10 years. We were talking about dishwasher soap. She don’t use borax because they use it in Ant poision. She had a good point so we just left out the borax. It does work.
    Hope this helps you all.

      I was debating that with someone recently. I actually have used a similar recipe to this one except baking powder and not soda. But Jason, with this recipe you did not replace Borax with anything in the “Green Cleaning- lady- studied plant bio’s recipe” just do Baking Soda and Vinegar? THX!!

    I’ve never seen this done before. I don’t have a dishwasher (or a sink but that’s another story…), but I repinned it anyway so other people can share! Thanks!

    So, here’s the thing with the borax, if it is rinsing completely off of your dishes, there is no problem. If there is a residue and you eat off of those dishes, you will have some…digestive issues, but you won’t be poisoned to death. I used the borax mix, but I couldn’t get it to rinse completely off even with Lemishine, so I just use the baking soda and vinegar. It works, but you have to wipe your dishes clean first. You can’t just plop them in the dishwasher with peanut butter and egg and cheese and what not on them.
