Dishwasher Rinse Aid ~ it is MAGIC for only pennies!
That is why I call this little mixture my "MAGIC" rinse aid!
There is only 2 ingredients in this recipe and the one is water!! It only takes a few seconds (literally) to make a batch and put it in your auto dispenser cup. It works better than vinegar, it gets your glass & silver ware sparkling clean, you can clean your fruit with it, add it to recipes to add a tartness AND it keeps your dishwasher clean all at the same time! HA how is that for a multipurpose ingredient to have on hand.
Are you ready yet to learn what this "MAGIC" Ingredient is?
Before we get started I do have one last thing to add. Prior to finding this little gem last year, I had sworn off the dry powder versions as they were the worst offenders of leaving a film on my dishes. I experimented and came up with a great gel Dishwasher soap that is awesome... It has real lemon juice in it so it already had a "dose" of this "magic" ingredient. You can find that recipe here. I have been using my dry version of Dishwasher soap along with the Magic rinse aid for about a year now with no spots & no film left on my dishes whatsoever! That is huge for me as sometimes we all get too busy and the dry version can be mixed together in just a few minutes.
Here is all you have to do.
2 oz warm water
3 TBS Citric Acid 5# Spicy world
Measure the water in a measuring cup, add in the citric acid and stir it up for a few seconds until it is dissolved in the water - Unscrew the cap from your auto dispenser, pour it in and you are DONE!
I buy my Citric Acid 5# Spicy world (affiliate link)Spicy World on Amazon. 5# for 18.00 and believe me that lasts a LONG time. If you prefer a smaller size to experiment with here is a 7.5 oz Ball Citric Acid 7.5 oz I use it for many other things ~ I listed some above BUT there is more! That will be another post for another time. Until then, enjoy your homemade Dishwasher detergent in ONE step by using this "MAGIC" Rinse aid, the only thing you will notice is your "Sparkling Dishes"
