Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Recipe ~ Make Your Own!

Make Your Own Dishwasher Detergent

Dishes…ugh.  Doing dishes is one of my least favorite chores…right next to doing laundry of course!  Even though I don’t love doing dishes, I simply have no choice.  The other thing, I am constantly running out of dish tabs, and the last time I went to buy them, I was shocked!  When did dish detergent start costing as much as a good steak?  I decided to try making my own and tested it out.  It worked perfectly, and cost less $6 for the supplies that will make about 4 times more than the store bought detergent that cost more than that!  So, today I’m sharing my Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Recipe so you can make you own too if you wish!
