Dishwasher Detergent

Here's a simple recipe for dishwasher soap:

1 cup of borax
1 cup of baking soda
cup of pickling  salt as it dissolves  easily in water and will not cloud your dishes like table salt can.
You can add scent and extra cleaning power with powdered lemon, lime, orange or other flavor, do not use Kool aid as it will gum up your dishwasher over time.

The amounts listed above are good for 16 loads -- one tablespoon each .
