The recipe she posted recipe works beautifully (here's the link), and I thought I'd add to the blogosphere's general knowledge by posting my incredibly secret recipe for home made rinse aid for dishwashers.
- White vinegar
- Blue food colouring (optional *LOL*)
Yes, I know I could have posted a whole stack of extra ingredients that don't do anything at all but look impressive.
I could even start selling my own "Daharja's Natural Rinse Aid" product in tiny bottles for $7 apiece, just like those other bottles you see all lined up in the supermarket.
But the truth is, white vinegar as rinse aid in your dishwasher will do the job beautifully. And cheaply.
If you want to, you can save a rinse aid bottle from a commercial product, clean it thoroughly, then put your own home made product (white vinegar) in the small rinse aid bottle. No one will know the difference!
Or you can just go bulk and pour straight from the large bottle of white vinegar you probably keep under your kitchen sink.
White vinegar is safe if accidentally consumed, and causes no problems I know of in septic systems.
