DIY

You can make your own dishwashing liquid.

A simple solution is to mix an equal amount of borax and baking soda and store them in an airtight container. Use 2 tablespoons of this mixture each time you wash. For rinsing, you can use white vinegar.

You will also find other ideas on the Mommypotamus site.
