Even when armed with a coupon and a store savings club card, it seems that automatic dishwasher detergent is never cheap enough. By using this homemade dishwasher detergent, I have been able to save tons of money while still maintaining virtually spotless dishes without using harsh chemicals, fragrances, or phosphates.
Automatic dishwasher detergents use a brute force approach that is effective but far too harsh for skin, breaking down stains and food with high pH and chlorine bleach. “It’s a great way to clean your dishes, but it’s not something you want to put your hands into,” Clauss says. Detergents for hand dishwashing do not contain bleach and use blends of surfactants that are mild to skin and work near neutral pH.
Laundry products are somewhere in between — tougher than hand dishwashing products but gentle enough for fabrics and dyes. Traditional powdered versions are closer to automatic dishwasher detergents and use higher pH to clean, while the newer liquid detergents are closer to neutral pH and rely more on surfactants that are less susceptible to water hardness, enzymes to break down proteins, starches and fats, and water-soluble polymers to help disperse dirt and oils.
