Here’s a recipe that I found that you may like, thanks to Tipnut.com:

Ingredients: 1 cup of borax (natural compound), 1 cup of baking soda (natural compound), and 2-3 drops of essential oils, these will make the dishes a little shinier.

As long as you mix the borax, baking soda, and essential oils in a plastic container you should be fine. Also, the recommended amount is 2 tablespoons per load.

Also, you can use vinegar in the rinse compartment to prevent any leftover residue.

If you’ve got any more questions, go ahead and shoot me an email at Greenjerrid@gmail.com.

There are several benefits to making your own cleaning products, here’s the list:

1. You’ll be saving money! The ingredients are cheap and most people already have them.

2. You’ll be using a reusable bottle, so that’ll be environmentally friendly.

3. The ingredients are organic or abundant.

You can use 1 part water and 1 part vinegar to clean bathroom tile and kitchens, such as floors and stove/counter tops.

The three concoctions: 

1. Vinegar/Water = Kitchen and Bathroom cleaner, make sure it’s half vinegar and half water or else it will dissolve your tile grout.

2. Baking soda/vinegar/lemon juice = Soap Scum remover! It’s a great replacement for comet, this will create a paste like substance.

3. Olive oil/lemon juice = Furniture cleaner, use 1 cup of olive oil and 1/2 cup of lemon juice to clean the wood on your furniture.
