Domestic Diva Takes on the dishwasher

Homemade dish soap


I love to find ways to save money. It is so easy to make your own homemade dish soap. Whenever I make something I make sure to place the instructions on the front.

Then I place the ingredients on the bottom to make sure I can replicate my mixture again. I grabbed this recipe from The Happy Lil Homemaker.

It is just 4 cups of baking soda and 2 cups of borax. Then to insure the residue doesn’t stick you place 1/2 cup of vinegar in the rinse area for every load you run.


I figured out to double the recipe you need the entire box of baking soda and a smaller box of the baking soda. Then just pour in the entire box of borax. I always make double it is easier. I also bought the 4 containers for $6.41 and I intend to fill them with more homemade products.

You can also see another version of homemade dish soap. I think you will find that these work better than what you are using. They are easy to make. I know my children love to mix them up. It is also nice to know what is touching the dishes that you put your mouth on.
