Problem: We ran out of dishwasher soap before I put in my Melaleuca order.
We order all our cleaning stuff (and drug store type stuff) from an eco-friendly company called Melaleuca.
But, I forgot to order dishwashing soap last month and I just squeezed out the last little droplets about a week ago.
At first, I thought my fix would be to just wash the dishes by hand, but that didn't happen.
Last night, out of desperation, I put a mixture of apple cider vinegar and the juice of one lemon (thanks for the wonderful lemons Deb!) in the dishwasher soap dispenser.
And you know what? I think my dishes are cleaner than they have ever been!
Weird, but true. Try it if you're in a pinch!
