Home Made Dishwasher Rinse Aid:
This is super easy and will keep your dishwasher running really well.
What you will need:
Fresh mint and rosemary
2 pints distilled water
1tbsp citric acid
4tbsp distilled vinegar
4 tbsp alcohol (vodka is a good choice)
Lemon essential oil
What to do:
Slice the lemon, add to a pan with the distilled water, mint and rosemary, heat for a few minutes then turn to a simmer for a few minutes more (I tend to then turn the heat off and let it stew for approximately 15 minutes so I do not lose any of the liquid).
Then strain & discard the mint, rosemary & lemon from your liquid.
Add 1 tablespoon of citric acid whilst the liquid is still warm and stir whilst adding the distilled vinegar.
Add a few drops of lemon essential oil to ½ teaspoon of the alcohol then add to your mixture.
Decant into an airtight bottle and use as required.
