Home Made Dishwasher Rinse Aid:

This is super easy and will keep your dishwasher running really well.

What you will need:

1 lemon

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.
