It’s so simple — much easier than my soap recipe or even the DIY deodorant.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup borax (natural disinfectant)
- 1 cup baking soda (natural disinfectant)
- 1/4 cup kosher salt (reduces effect of hard water)
- 2 packets lemonade-flavored Kool-Aid, unsweetened (Citric acid is the main ingredient in these powdered packets, and it removes hard water stains. You can also buy citric acid from a place that sells brewing ingredients, but I think Kool-Aid is much easier to come by.)
I’ve only used this mixture twice on my own dishes, but the results have been the same as with the Seventh Generation detergent I was using previously so I’ll keep using it. I also plan to try adding 1/2 a cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle because I’ve heard that really makes your dishes come out sparkly clean.
Happy dish washing!
