Ingredients for Dishwasher Detergent

Then add to your storage container of choice I like using mason jars for storage in our home, using 1 tbsp at a time for each load.

If you don’t have hard water, you can always try this recipe without the citric acid and see how that works for you. We do not have hard water per se, but I still like to add it for the extra shine on my glasses.
