I was recently teaching about Sugar-Free Jam making at the Bracken Ridge Library and, as usual, got chatting afterwards with like-minded people about making things yourself, helping the environment and the hip pocket at the same time. The below recipe was emailed to me by a lovely lady names Beverley and I wanted to share this with you all.
Recipe (modified slightly four ease of use)
- One cup Bi carb soda (baking soda)
- One cup washing soda (sodium carbonate, powdered not crystals)
- Half a cup of citric acid
- Half a cup of salt
Mix the above ingredients all together and then use one tablespoon for a load of dishes. Use white vinegar instead of rinse aid.
This is a much safer option than the chemical detergents you get in the grocery store, benefiting both you and the environment. It also costs less to make your own, so save yourself some money and mix yourself up a batch.
