    I find that if you use a sponge the soap goes a longer way.

    Jane: I buy the 16 ounce bottle of Dove or Palmolive dish soap at the

    dollar store for about $1.10 and pour about 1/2 bottle of it into an

    empty

    16 ounce bottle and fill both bottles with cold tap water. It still

    makes suds after I add the water. One bottle lasts me about a month

    or

    a little longer.

    However, I have a dish washer and there`s just me and my husband. The

    store brand dosen`t work for me, for it dosen`t suds on greasy pots

    and pans. After I wash the pots and pans with the store brand they

    have a greasy feeling to them.

    You might want to try this and see if works for you.

    1 tablespoon borax

    1 tablespoon baking soda



    This is good for 1 load



    ***I usually make a big batch by mixing equal parts of borax and baking

    soda and then just keep a 2 tablespoon scoop in the container for

    measuring it when needed.

    Is this for automatic dishwashers or washing by hand? I would love

    to make my own for automatic dishwashers.

    Just curious.....does it clean as well as the brand name

    detergents? Approx. how much is a box of borax (and does it

    dissolve well in hard water?) Thanks.

    I'm not sure if this is any cheaper. I buy an off brand of detergent

    that is pretty cheap BUT borax with arm and hammer laundry soap is

    cheap for laundry detergent.
