DIY Christmas Dishwasher Powder
1 ½ cup of Premium Borax
¼ cup of citric acid (purchase from the supermarket)
Place all in a container with a good lid and shake until thoroughly combined, pop in a couple of silica sachets (I save mine from packets of tortillas and the like) as this will help to keep dishwasher powder powdery. If it does go a little hard give it a few stabs with a butter knife and a really good shake.
Use 1 Tbsp per load. If you live in an area with particularly hard water add add 2 Tbsp of Premium Soda Ash to this recipe to break down the calcium deposits.
As an alternative to chemical rinse solutions, fill up the rinse compartment with Premium Double Strength White Vinegar for sparkly dishes.
If you live in an area with particularly hard water add add 2 Tbsp of Premium Soda Ash to this recipe to break down the calcium deposits.
