I’ve used this method successfully for about a year. It produces a liquid that is suitable for washing by hand or for the dishwasher, but does not make even a single bubble of foam.
Natural Dishwasher Liquid
- 100 ml white vinegar
- 50 ml red wine vinegar
- 3 lemons
- 200 g salt
- 400 ml water
DirectionsCaution: The steam while boiling is VERY strong smelling, it is advisable to open the windows!
- Juice 3 whole lemons (pass the whole lemons through a juicer or blend them and strain to get a pulp free juice)
- Dissolve the salt in the water while bringing to boil
- Add vinegar and return to boiling point
- Add lemons and return to boil
- Boil for 15 minutes
Use: Put it in a glass bottle, preferably in the refrigerator for up to a couple of months, but preferably make the right amount for a month. Use 1 spoon per dishwasher load if you prewash your dishes, and 2 if you don’t.
