i found the recipe here, so don't give me credit for that by any means. i'm just spreading the love. here's what you'll need:
- 2 cups borax
- 2 cups baking soda
- mixing bowl & spoon
- storage container
measure and place the borax and baking soda in a bowl, stir, and pour into your container.
the recipe is one part borax to one part baking soda, so adjust your amounts based on the size of your container. i used 2 cups of each because it fits perfectly in a medium sized mason jar (complete with a nice little label that makes my heart happy).
total cost: $2.11
lasts: 6-8 months
fill your dishwasher detergent slot 3/4 full and then close the lid and run your cycle. it's such a simple recipe and it works! not to mention, i always have borax and baking soda on hand which means i can whip up a batch in a pinch like i did yesterday. grin.
