If you’re like my family, you run the dishwasher at least once a day.

Over time, that takes a lot of detergent and also gets expensive.

Besides the cost, do you want ingredients that are harmful going on your dishes? No, you don’t.

This dishwasher detergent has simple ingredients, but ones that work. I’ve been using this recipe for about seven years and have never had my dishes come out dirty. It takes about five minutes to make and doesn’t have a list of fifteen ingredients.

Ready for the recipe? Here you go.

Step 5:

Take your lemon juice, and measure 4 Tablespoons to every cup of powder. However, if you’re planning to keep the mixture loose in a container, do not put as much lemon juice in as it will turn hard. A harder mix is better when you’re placing it in the ice cube trays.

You can double or triple the batch so you don’t need to make it as often. Honestly though it takes so little time to make, it’s never usually a problem.
