The all-natural homemade dishwasher detergent was a bust.

It did an ok job, but when it comes to dishes, ok is not ok, even if the residue is all natural.

While the dishes smelled clean and the plates looked fine, the glasses had food particles stuck to them and the tupperware containers/lids had a filmy powder all over them. (I thought about taking a photo to upload into this post, but then decided that my Delicious Readers probably didn't care to see it. LOL)

As I said in my previous post, I didn't make an entire batch of the detergent. I basically combined enough of the ingredients to make the suggested amount (2 tablespoons) for a load.

Would it be different if I made the entire recipe and was sure that the amounts of my ingredients were precise? Maybe. I don't know if it's worth trying or not. Castile soap isn't terribly expensive, but it isn't cheap either. A little goes a long way, but when a recipe calls for 2 cups of it, I'm prone to hesitation.

Guess I'll have to give it some thought...
