This is a very handy, economical way to make your own detergent for the dishwasher. It really works and you don't have that overpowering bleachy smell in your kitchen from using the store-bought dishwasher detergents.You absolutely do not have to worry about this sudsing up in your dishwasher. It is also handy for when you have baked on messes on cookie sheets or pots. Throw a tablespoon in with some soaking water and the mess comes up great. Note: this is not edible - this is a recipe for homemade dishwasher soap.
