    We can make our own cleaners, our own soap, our own laundry detergents from basic items. Did you know you can even choose alternatives for washing your dishes?

    I tried the borx and washing soda. It didnt work for me. I have used the citric acid to clean the  dishwasher, that worked really good. Babs

    borax and washing soda with lemon juice and palmolive for binder, works for me but needs a rinse aid or vinegar as well in the rinse dispenser.
