This is probably one of my favorite DIY home hacks. It is super easy to make and it works awesome. This is a great detergent for your dishwasher that is made with everything you should have in your home already, and it is chemical free! The best part is if you mix up three or four batches at once, you won't need to worry about making it for quite a while. You can check out the huge container I use below to store it all in. Another handy tip is to throw a baby sock filled with rice (tie it with a rubber band) into the detergent to keep out any moisture and stop it from hardening.
