It calls for: 3 cups Borax 3 cups Washing Soda 1/2 cup powdered laundry detergent (you might be able to get away with less) Store in a dry place. It cleans very well, but be careful not to use too much! Use not much more than one tablespoon per load and make adjustments from there, if necessary. With this recipe, less is more.
The mixture goes a long way. It leaves my dishes much, much shinier, whereas the plain borax and washing soda left a bit of a "chalky" or "dry" feel to my dishes. D.B. editor's note: washing soda is typically found with other cleaning products. Not all stores carry it, so you may have to ask at your favorite store.
