Greener Dishwasher Detergent

This dishwasher detergent has worked quite well in our dishwasher. No yucky film and the dishes come out as clean as they would using the toxic detergents I used to use. This recipe does use some earth-friendly store bought detergent which I then "water down."

In a plastic container combine:

2 cups BORAX (Sam's Club or Costco)
2 cups BAKING SODA (Sam's Club or Costco)
2 cups SEVENTH GENERATION® DISHWASHER DETERGENT (Whole Foods)
4 packs generic Kool-Aid LEMONADE (about $0.17 a pack)
20-40 drops of ESSENTIAL OIL

Fill the main wash compartment with 2 tablespoons and the pre-wash with 1 tablespoon. I would love your feedback?

Amazing...worked great and an economical way to eliminate phosphates! Why lemon kool aid? That one threw me...but I included it :). And love the lemon essential oil...I want to use it as perfume!
