    For just you & your spouse, your hand-washing makes sense, but for my family of 5, it's a full load nightly, at a minimum, so cheaper detergent that WORKS is always better for me! family of 7...washing by hand wouldn't be economical. I've used other homemade tablet recipes, and I haven't had bad experiences ..this recipe has a lot going on, so I'm not sure the issue, just keep tweaking until you find your happy place

    I use the Vinegar in the rinse aid compartment.

    I can't wait to make this. I normally use Vinegar in the rinse aid. This sounds so much cheaper then buying some. I already have the ingredients. Thank you!

    Can't wait to try this on my dishes I think I will try it without making the pellets. Maybe good for cleaning sinks too

    I made a powder form but used lemon sugar free cool aid instead of lemon juice, that way the powder stays unclumped if you just want the powder form.

    I can't wait to make these! I'm tired of paying around $2.98 - $3 something for only 20 tablets. Thanks so much for the recipe mix!

    i was so excited to use this detergent after i had such great success with the Super Laundry Sauce. Well, long story short, it left a gross cloudy film all over all of my dishes, scratched my glasses, plates, and even my plastic tupperware, and couldn't even cut through bacon grease. I was using lemon juice in the rinse aid dispenser (which was pointless, because it didn't dispense enough at one time to be of any use). The only time I used it and could honestly be like "wow this works!" was when I added a cup of vinegar directly in the bottom of my machine in the wash cyle, and then stopped the washer and added another full cup in the rinse cycle. Since I usually run my dishwasher at night when we go to bed, obviously, that would be impractical for me. Fortunately I found a great deal on Finish powerball tabs on Amazon.... (it should be noted that i have VERY hard water)

    I can't wait to try this! It's very hot in GA and I think this will work well����

    I agree that the pods are so expensive. Thank you for this great recipe! I am always for saving money.

    I have some granulated lemon juice powder called True Lemon. Made by RealLemon company. Wonder if that would work too and then nothing will need to be added when loading the dishwasher. They also sell Fruit Fresh too. Which is basically asorbic acid and dextrose with a non-clumping agent. Its fairly cheap too.

    I would like to know if there's a way to make a dry mix of the stuff the laundry sauce & dishwasher pellets have in common i.e. borax and washing soda, and then add whatever liquid and/or recipe specific ingredients such as fels naptha, epsom salts, lemon juice etc. In essence I guess I want to know what would be the proper proportions of each separate ingredient to make 48 pellets at once. From there I can figure out what I want. thanks

    I absolutley love these pellets! They aer so simple to make and use. They get my dishes SO clean. I have noticed a little bit of streakin, but to solve that problem I just put vinegar in the machine where "Jet Dry" is supposed to go. This is a definate money saver, and I love alway having these nifty pellets at hand. And if I run out, it only takes a moment to whip a new batch.......
