Well, I'm ready to share my first money-saving
recipe used in the Fowler house. Barry and I
decided we were going to make up some of these recipes this
weekend and try them out. This was our first experiment,
and it turned out really well.
We've run several loads in the dishwasher thus far and
every dish has come out spotless. So here's the recipe.
One source says the price comparison between the average
national brand cost and the homemade is about .14-.17 cents versus .05 cents for the homemade. This is considering that all
ingredients were bought at full retail price.
So enough of that, here's the recipe:
1/2 cup borax 1/2 cup washing soda
1/4 cup citric acid 1/4 cup kosher salt
use 1 Tablespoon per load.
Yes, it's that easy. Leave me a comment if you try it and
let me know what you think.
