Brought about a years supply of Dishwasher powder at the beginning of the month. Thought I was being very saving smart, as they were a good brand on sale.
Only to find it makes me very sick, so it must go.
But what to replace it with?
- Could go back to old brand, even though it's not on sale?
- Try another cheap brand?
- Try an Eco-friendly brand, even though it costs more?
- Or make my own?
I decided to look into making my own dishwasher powder, there were a few recipes. But one stood out as easy to get the ingredients, and easy to make.
From Bin Inn website I found Lyn Webster MAKE Dishwasher Powder.
|My homemade dishwasher powder is lovely and fluffy. It doesn't overwhelm me with smell too.|
MAKE Dishwasher Powder is cheap too. About $5.48 for the amount I made in the picture, and you use 1 tablespoon per load.
Now what next to change?
- Our washing powder?
- Our all purpose cleaner?
- Our dish washing liquid?
- Our shampoo?
- Our toothpaste?
