Again, I know recipes like this aren't food but saving money is yummy and I just wanted to share this simple and inexpensive recipe for Dishwasher Detergent.
I had made a recipe previously and didn't like the white film it left on my utensils and bowls. I was hesitant to try another homemade recipe. Well let me tell you I am glad I did. This worked fabulous! I tried it out on some way yucky dishes and they came out sparkly clean!! The greatest thing about this recipe for me personally was that I already had everything that it called for so it really didn't cost me anything at all.
Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

Use 1 Tbsp in each load.
