This didn't cause any build up in our dish washer! All cascade dish soap leaves a thick coat of powdery white, but this soap kept everything nice and clean! Wonderful recipe!
This works great. It is cheaper and gets my dishes cleaner.
I used plain borax in a pinch, and dishes came out fine. I still bought Cascade, for greasy dishes, but for plates and glasses only, just borax works fine.
works great I found this a couple of weeks ago on another site and thought about looking up here today.
So far, so good!! Now just have fun finding Borax! Took me a few stores, but got one last box at Super T. If it works on pots and pans, I'll come back to give it a 5! Thanks!
We've been using your dishwasher soap recipe for over a year now. Thank you for all the $$$ we've saved, and for the help to the environment. (We've also used Arm & Hammer Washing Soda when the store was out of Borax.)
I tried so hard to make this work, because it's so economical. Despite trying different amounts in loads, vinegar in the rinse, and using it half and half with a commercial dishwashing detergent, it seemed to leave my dishes dirtier than when they went into the wash. It's taken me ages to scrub the film off of them. :( I suspect that my very hard well water doesn't lend itself to this mixture.
I love this recipe, just tried it, recently. I also put in an equal amount of Tang. Got the recipe off another site.
Thanks for the great idea! I still use detergent, but alot less. I put this in the prewash, half the cascade in the wash, and rinse with vinager. Sqeaky clean!
