Natural Homemade Dishwasher Cleaner

For 5 years I use my old dishwasher on a daily basis without even doing any regular cleaning maintenance. Lack of knowledge and experience plus a very busy life, so my dishwasher last only for 5 years.

I purchased new dishwasher last year when my kitchen was renovated. To my fear of breaking it again, I only use it 1 to 2 times a month.


Now that I've learned how to do maintenance cleaning using no chemicals, I thought of using it again on a daily basis and see how it goes. 
  1. Empty your dishwasher, and remove or pull out the lower dish rack as far as possible. Locate the drain, and clean around it, removing the filter and thoroughly washing. Check all the spinning arms, and clear holes of debris or buildup with a paper towel.
  1. Place one cup of plain white distilled vinegar in a container on the bottom rack of the dishwasher. Now pour a half-cup of baking soda on a small dish and place on the top rack.

I still have a lot of  Cascade Diswasher Sacket and I can't wait to finish it all so I can use chemical free dishwasher detergent. I tried using heavy mix of Pink Solution and so far I am happy. But I like to try some recipe like this one;
  • 2 parts borax ( I will omit this)
  • parts washing soda
  • 1 part citric acid 
  • 1 part salt
  • essential oils for scent (completely optional)
I also still have some Oxyclean Rinse but once it's done, I will be using White Vinegar instead.,,

Using my dishwasher on a regular daily basis will be less work for me and will keep my kitchen always nice and clean!!!! 

I am so happy to learn about making my own homemade household products. Not only it's safe but it will save me money
