Making the Most out of your Dishwashing Detergent

Dishes Sitting in Soapy Water

I have found that adding 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar to my dishwashing liquid helps tremendously. Vinegar is a natural grease cutter and adding it to the cleaner helps to give the cleaner an extra boost. I just add it to the bottle and shake it up.

Now this is interesting! I use white vinegar for cleaning window, and what a sparkle I get. Now, I'm going to add it to my dish soap!
