We have now been using this for about a week and we do about 1 load a day, much to my dismay. And the verdict? I LOVE it! It’s so inexpensive and you only use 2 tsp. total for each wash.
By my calculations the total cost of one batch, which would give you about 48 loads, is a whopping $1.37. This is based on the price I got for my ingredients.

This is by far the simplest recipe I found while searching Pinterest. There are others that call for way more in the dishwasher or adding lemi-shine or salt. I found that this recipe worked just fine for us and we have had no issues. We have a new dishwasher just purchased a few months ago and I believe we do have hard water but have not seen a residue at all.
For even shinier dishes, use plain old white vinegar in the rinse aid receptacle and save even more money! I no longer have to run out to get the best coupon deals for Jet Dry.
