Do you remember when I posted about
I quit using the recipe I shared
due to the fact that a mysterious film
continued to appear on my freshly washed dishes.
I was not willing to put up with it.
I threw in the towel.
The time has come to give it another try.
At the time of that post, my friend Trisha
left her recipe in the comment section ~
Thank you for sharing Trisha! :)
It's very simple.
One part Borax to one part Baking Soda.
That would be the cooking kind,
and not the washing kind of soda.
Mix together and store in a glass jar.
Use like you would your regular detergent.
(I use about 2 Tbsp per load ~
please ignore the photo above for dispensing amount)
So far, it has worked!
The only thing that I have noticed
is that this does not work as well as the
pre-packaged, store-bought stuff on pots.
When I want to wash pots in my machine, I don't use this.
Otherwise, it is a winner in my books.
I use white vinegar in the rinse dispenser.
We do not have hard water where we live.
I don't know if those things make a difference.
Overall, my initial findings are positive.
And, it is SO much cheaper!
Let me know if you give it a go.
I hope it works for you too!
