Making Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

Okay, I saw the idea on Pinterest... had to try. 
 I was so surprised how much detergent it makes. 
I may have enough for the next 2 years!
This is how I made...
1 box Borax (WalMart, Clothes Detergent Isle $2.98)
1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (WalMart, Clothes Detergent Isle $3.24)
1 jar of Fruit Fresh (I had, I think they are around $2-3... The stuff is full of Citric Acid)
3 Cups Epsom Salt ($2)

Mix all ingredients together in a VERY LARGE Bowl.  When mixed well, put in container of your choice (I have a smaller one for under my sink and I did a large container for storage in the garage) make sure it is air tight to keep the detergent from hardening.

So my whole project cost me a little over $11, but I have enough for at least 2-3 years!

Use 1 Tablespoon at a time!

Daughter Graduates from College in 3 years...
so proud of her, then she lands her dream job...
she is now always working, and loves it!

Son and husband... always fishing!

I started to redecorate my daughter's room...
more furniture to paint!

Lost my dear sister-in-law at age 46 to cancer. 
 She is missed dearly,
but I'm grateful she isn't suffering anymore

Ideas and projects in my head...constantly!

Then there is this little booger!
I don't blog anymore... maybe that is a good thing!
So enjoying, easy, inspiring
