Weekly Green Tip: Dishwasher Soap

This week's tip comes from team member BumbleBabyMommy's blog: How to make your own dishwasher soap!!

http://bumblebabymommy.blogspot.com/2009/01/save-on-dishwasher-soap.html

It only ends up costing about 8 cents a load, so you'll save money while you save the environment! Click and read the blog for more information on why this detergent is so great.

Here's how it's done:

Mix together 1 tablespoon of Borax and 1 tablespoon of Baking soda. Then put it into the soap compartment of your dishwasher and run the dishwasher as you normally would.

I wanted to say that a few days ago I made this detergent and used it, and yes indeed it DOES work well!! My dishes were cleaned to perfection and not only that, but I didn't have that obnoxious bleachy smell permeating through the house that most dishwasher detergents tend to create.

Aren't borax and baking soda just the greatest things? They have so many uses.
Thanks for the tip!
