Works for Me Wednesday: "Green" Dishwasher Detergent
Well, I've been looking for some "green" cleaning options and I stumbled on Green Clean Chic through one of my blogging buddies, Holly. I was so impressed with the products and I ordered the green clean kit which came with 4 essential oils and one biodegradable cleanser. I immediately started using the products and my house smelled so good and clean! Well, I wanted to see what else I could replace in my cleaning. I consulted Holly and also found a good recipe in Super Baby Food (which I HIGHLY recommend, not just for baby food!). Mix equal parts Borax and Baking soda and add a few drops of lemon essential oil from Green Clean Chic and you have your new "green" dishwasher detergent. Add 1 T of this mix to the open compartment and 1 T to the closed compartment in your dishwasher. So I tried it and it works!
