As a follow-up to my last Frugal Friday post, I’d like to share with you a few links to sites where you can find recipes to make your own dishwasher detergent:
I currently use a brand of dishwasher detergent that comes in pre-measured and sealed packs, one of each you insert into your dishwasher detergent dispenser for every load you run.
According to something told to a friend by a dishwasher installer, these pre-packaged dishwasher detergents can actually shorten the life of your dishwasher. The installer advised using a powder type detergent but only a very small amount, and to experiment to see how little you really need to use to get the job done to your satisfaction.
Once I use up my current dishwasher detergent, I’ll be making my own using one of the recipes from the links above.
Now here are several sites where you can find many other uses for vinegar:
Thank you, Donna, for taking the time to research these and sharing them with me!
