Do you have trouble with your glasses turning cloudy in the dishwasher?
Yeah, me too! I came up with a solution that works great, so I want to show you how to make dishwasher rinse aid.
I used a mixture of some different recipes and then put my own spin on the dishwasher rinse aid.
dishwasher rinse aid ingredients
For this dishwasher rinse aid, you will need white vinegar, lemon slices, rosemary sprigs, lemon essential oil and a glass container to store it in.
The rosemary sprigs are optional and really serve no purpose other than an additional scent and they look pretty in the glass container.
I leave mine out on the counter, and I like for it to look nice.
prepping for you dishwasher rinse aid
First, you will want to cut the lemon slices.
You can leave them in full slices or cut the slices in half again, depending on the size of the opening of your container.
Next, you will cut rosemary sprigs.
Maybe you grow your own or have a friend or neighbor that does.
Otherwise, you can usually find it in the produce section of the grocery store. Again, the rosemary is optional.
putting your rinse aid together
Fill the container with the lemon slices and rosemary sprigs.
You can alternate them if you want, and use as much or little as you like. No rules here!
Next, you will want to fill the container with the white vinegar.
I use a funnel, but you certainly don’t have to. I’m just not a very neat pourer!
After you fill the jar with white vinegar, add 4-5 drops of lemon essential oil.
If you don’t have lemon essential oil on hand, you can use the juice from a 1 lemon.
This may result in a cloudy mixture, but it will serve the same purpose.
And, that’s it!! It’s that simple.
I fill the rinse aid dispenser in the dishwasher each time I run it.
I keep mine on this cute stand beside my sink with a couple of other cleaning essentials, so it’s easy for me to grab it every time I am ready to run my dishwasher.
And, it just looks pretty!!
I hope you enjoyed seeing how to make dishwasher rinse aid, and try some of your own.
