Homemade Dishwasher Powder

Cheaper Safer Greener

Ingredients
1 cup Borax
1 cup Baking Soda
1 Storage Container (I reuse the last plastic tub the bought dishwashing powder came in)
1 Scoop - the size of 1 flat tablespoon, or an old tablespoon.

Optional
20-30 drops of orange essential oil, or lavender oil, or eucalyptus oil.
1/4 cup Citic or Tartaric Acid

Instructions
Mix the Borax (available in your cleaning aisle, or hardware store) and Baking Soda (available in the baking aisle near the spices and cake mix stuff) together with the citric acid, adding the oil one drop at a time. Voila!

As an added bonus I'll share with you my homemade Rinse Aid: White Vinegar.
