I have been having trouble getting my dishes spotless. Heck I've been having trouble getting my dishes to come clean, period. Every time I would open the dishwasher it looked like it had never been turned on in the first place.
After reading this


I decided to give this homemade dish washing detergent recipe a try.
All you need is:

Baking Soda
White vinegar
Add equal parts of Borax & baking soda to your cleaning compartments
(about 2 tablespoons)
Vinegar to your rinse department

Even though I was cautiously optimistic upon trying this out. I have to say that I am downright amazed at the results. My dishes are actually clean. No flakes of leftover food, no sticky residue or film. No longer do I have re-wash the dishes by hand. Yippee! I 'm saving water! I'm saving time and money!Plus these products are natural which is good for my septic tank.
Lissa can go green!
Thanks Ms. Prissy! Everyday I learn something new and this week it was from you!

Hey Lissa. That's a great recipe (& Ms Prissy of course). Now I want to know if you can help me w/ why my whites are starting to look dingy. We're on a well/septic as well. Any ideas?

Cute blog you have here!

That's great to hear that it worked. I miss our dishwasher from our last apartment, but when we redo our kitchen, it's the first thing I want. I'll have to keep this recipe in mind.

Thanks for commenting on the one on my blog!
