The end of the month is always tight for us. We always make it but we are squeaking the whole way. So this week I ran out of dishwasher detergent. I debated whether or not to run to the store and do the money juggle but decided I could wait until the 1st when we get paid. With six of us living here I run at least two to three loads in the dishwasher everyday. I guess I could have hand washed but I just don't have the time to add anything else to my day. I knew I couldn't use regular dish soap in my washer because one weekend when I was gone, the husband decided that was a great idea and the kids called me letting me know that my kitchen floor was covered in 6 inches of bubbles. But I DID have another none sudsing soap in the house.
Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent!
Woohoo. It washed my dishes great, left no residue and they came out sparkly clean. So if you haven't already tried the homemade laundry soap yet, maybe that will help get you there. And if you have, then now you don't need to panic if you are out of dishwasher detergent.
