I’ve tinkered with my DIY Dishwashing Detergent a bit. My first few dishwasher loads were lovely, but then something happened and my glasses started to come out with a dusty white film. I’m all for life less plastic, but I want clear glasses, too. What to do, what to do.
Reducing the amount of dishwashing powder didn’t seem to help. If I go below 1 teaspoon per load, the dishes come out with food still attached, and the film is still there.
I can’t add more vinegar than what the rinse aid cup will hold, so that’s not an option. Although the vinegar is very important – Don’t forget the vinegar! .
My answer: I fill the dishwashing detergent cup with baking soda, leaving just enough room for 1 teaspoon for my DIY dishwashing powder. This added baking soda seems to do the trick, and my glasses seem to be coming out without the film.
Baking soda, the answer to many problems. It’s almost creepy how useful the stuff is.
