Well here is our homemade household item of the week. Dishwasher soap!!!
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup kosher salt
1 teaspoon dry rice (to prevent clumps)
Mix everything except the vinegar together. When ready to wash dishes in your dishwasher put 1 tablespoon of the mixture in the main soap spot of your dishwasher and fill the rinse agent with vinegar and BAM you are all done. Works like a charm.
