From Sydney to Cootamundra, from city to the country. Living a simple life, being frugal, being more self-sufficient and kinder to the environment. Growing our own vegetables, raising our own egg producing chickens (even with a rooster that snuck its way into the flock) and making more food and cleaning products from scratch. Hopefully doing all this while finding more time to spend with each other.
Ok I have had an though (shocking I know), I have converted
from using rinse aid in my dishwasher to just using vinegar & this is
working fine, but now that my dishwashing powder is getting low I am wondering
why I am still even looking at buying it. Surely I can make it. Dishwasher Powder 1 cup bi-carbonate soda
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup citric acid
Mix thoroughly and store in an airtight container. Use 1 tablespoon at
Seems simple and I have all of these ingredients here, I
might just make half the amount so I can make sure it works. I will reuse the
container that I bought my last lot of dishwashing powder in, just as I reused
the old rinse aid bottle (trying to pour vinegar into a small hole from a 2
litre bottle doesn’t work so well.
