Create your own homemade LemonShine dishwasher detergent for sparkly clean dishes without harsh chemicals!
Recently one of our members, Momo, shared this wonderful recipe in our forums and we thought we’d give it a try since it’s very simple and inexpensive to make. We were impressed with how well it performed!

You’ll Need:
3 Whole Lemons
1 c. Kosher Salt
2 c. Water
1/2 c. White Vinegar

Cut the lemons into small chunks (remove the seeds), place them in the blender with 2 cups of water. Puree until smooth.

Transfer the mix to a saucepan and add salt and vinegar. Heat mixture over medium heat stirring constantly until the salt it dissolved. Reduce the heat to barely a simmer and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Remove from heat, let it cool, transfer to a jar with a PLASTIC cover. Avoid using a metal lid as it will corrode quickly. To use, add a dab to the dishwasher (just fill the liquid detergent compartment).

We like the restore caps for this as it makes it mess free and easy to pour!
