Making Your Own Natural Dishwashing Rinse

Making Your Own Natural Dishwashing Rinse

Anyone that has purchased natural dishwashing rinse from somewhere like Whole Foods knows that it’s expensive. It’s about $5 a bottle and depending on your settings it doesn’t last you a long time. I refuse to buy the regular kind with all the chemicals in it that will sit on my plates.

Just to give you an idea what you can avoid, these are the ingredients in the most popular brands rinse aid. Take a look and ask yourself if you want those ingredients on the dishes and glasses you drink and eat out of.

Ingredients
Water
Alcohol Alkoxylate
Sodium Cumene Sulfonate Ethanol
Zinc Chloride
Citric Acid
LiquitintTM Blue
Various perfumes

This is a very simple way to replace all that.

All you need is

1 gallon of White Vinegar
25 to 30 drops of essential lemon oil

drop the essential oil directly into the vinegar and shake it a little. Mark the bottle and keep it under your sink for refills into your dishwasher. It’s that easy and it saves you money.
