"Of all the recipes, this one has been the most difficult to formulate. I have tested dozens of recipes over the years: cutting lemons and trying to make a liquid detergent from them, mixing Castile soap and vinegar, shuffling different powders in all sorts of imaginative combinations, and so on.
I have learned that it is extremely difficult to identify the most eco-friendly and, at the same time, effective formula for a dishwasher detergent when there are several elements that affect the outcome - the dishwasher brand, the kind of water, the cycle you decide to use and, of course, the amount of grime. After extensive research, I have concluded that this is the best recipe and the best combination of powders I can find - so far, anyway! "
