Super Frugal Dishwasher Update

It works!! I have a slimline dishwasher and after a couple of trial runs I have discovered that 5 drops of 'Ecover' washing up liquid and half a teaspoon of normal table salt, placed together in the tablet dispenser drawer, cleans just as well as the dishwasher products. Whoop whoop - here's to saving loads of money!

The salt is necessary to kill off the foam, so don't skip it unless you need a good reason to have to mop your floor! :D


White vinegar can also be used instead of rinse aid. My next task is to try and find somewhere that I can refill my washing up liquid bottle. I know that some health food shops have Ecover refill stations but I haven't found one yet...
