Eco-Friendly & Effective DISHWASHER DETERGENT
When envisioning clean dishes, you may think of pristine, sanitized dishes left without any traces of food. That’s not too much to ask… right? I doubt you would imagine that residue from store bought soap, either in powder or “gel” form could be potentially dangerous.
The FDA doesn’t mandate ingredient disclosure to household products. That means that what may be deemed “safe” for one person may be harmful to another. In fact, most commercial-brand dish washing detergents are made from a petroleum-based mixture of chlorine bleaches and other harmful substances such as chemical solvents that can cause hormonal disruptions, lung and eye irritations, intoxication and even cancer.
Here is a home made dishwasher solution recipe that has performed well over time, leaving dishes clean without concern for toxic chemical residue.
- 1 teaspoon of table salt
- 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- One drop of white vinegar
- Optional: One drop of Castile soap (or other eco friendly non toxic dish washing soap.)
