DIY Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

½ cup 20 Mule Team Borax
½ cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (NOTE: this is NOT baking soda)
¼ cup Kosher Salt
½ cup citric acid (or 4 packets unsweetened lemon aide drink mix... like Kool Aid)

Mix everything together.
Use 1 Tablespoon per load.
Store in a Ziploc freezer bag.

If you can't find Citric Acid locally can be purchased online here.
A 5 lb container will set you up for a good long while!  Plus, it comes in handy during cold season!  If you do it for colds, remember to get some Citrus Bioflavanoids to take with it so it doesn't flush through your system.
