I came across a recipe for homemade dishwasher powder. I don't have a dishwasher myself; but, I know that my Friend Sherry and many of you have them. Erin uses Borax and washing soda mixed together to make her own powder. Then she uses 1 T per load. Those two products are so versatile!
You can read the recipe and more details at her blog, I Am Frugal.
Well, it's time for me to go do some cleaning up!
