- 1 c. Arm & Hammer All-Natural Baking Soda (or Washing Soda)
- 1 c. All-Natural Borax
- 1 Tbsp. dried orange peel (optional)
TO USE: For wash cycle, use 3-4 tsp. of the above mixture in the same place you would put your liquid detergent. Fill the rinse cycle with white vinegar.
TIPS: 1) I use the dried orange peel because citric acid is also a natural cleanser and it helps me know if the mixture is evenly mixed. 2) Add lemon and/or lime juice to the pre-wash cycle, if desired. 3) White vinegar also works well to clean your dish washer. Just throw a cup in the bottom of the washer and run a short cycle. 4) As a final tip, it’s always best to rinse your dishes prior to loading your dishwasher.
