We’ve noticed a chemical smell/taste left on our cups and dishes lately so in an effort to use less chemicals in our home we’ve been making our own soaps.  Here is a recipe that the girls and  I made to replace those detergent gel packs,  it is also recommended to use vinegar as a natural rinse aid:

Natural Dishwasher Detergent:

1 cup borax

1 cup washing soda

1/4 cup Epsom salt

4 tbsp lemon juice

*mix ingredients together, press into an ice cube tray, and leave overnight
