      Does anyone have a good recipe that they could post on here? I would like to make this and put it in a cute mason jar and give as a gift. I googled and thought maybe someone on here could better assist me.

      I make my own dry dishwasher detergent. I do a 1:2:2 ratio of LemonShine, Borax, and Washing Soda. The LemonShine isn't needed unless you (or the person you are giving it to) have hard water. If you (or they) don't have hard water, a 1:1 ratio of Washing Soda and Borax works well too, at least for my family it does. It only uses about a tablespoon for each load.

      What is LemonShine, and where do you get it?

      Lemi Shine (sorry, I misspelled it) is found in the dishwasher detergent location of a store or online. It's for people who have hard water for their tap water. It for removing hard water minerals in the main wash cycle of your dishwasher since normal detergent isn't made for hard water usually. I have attached a link to the item so you'll know what it is I'm talking about.

      I am wondering if this leaves a film on the dishes? Using the "Dishwasher Sauce" left a film.

      If you have hard water, that would leave behind film on your dishes. This is where LemiShine helps.
