Don’t you just love a product that you can buy and use for practically everything?  My family does and that gave me an idea to start a series called “10 Uses For.”  Each time, I’ll choose something that does double duty around your home while also saving you money!  I decided to start with baking soda since it’s so versatile.

One thing I really can’t give up is my dishwasher.  We have two young kids and we use that thing like crazy.  I throw just about everything in there too.  I sanitize our toothbrushes, clean sponges, you name it, I’ve tried washing it in dishwasher.  I try to use everything to my advantage, dishwasher included.  Those liquid detergents really add up though.  Even with coupons, I can’t get the cost as low as I would like.  I was reading our local newspaper the other day and I came across a recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent.  I had most of the ingredients so I decided to give it a go!  It was so easy to make and you only need a tablespoon of mix each time!  I’m hooked. I really don’t notice a difference between this and the expensive stuff either!  It’s so much cheaper to make and it’s non-toxic!   I really hope you give it a try.
