I have noticed that my dishes don't 'feel' as clean with the homemade dishwasher detergent. I do not have a rinse aid and can't put vinegar in it to see if that would help. So I broke down and bought dishwasher gel last night. I did buy the 'natural' kind, can't remember what brand it is but it's only $2.97 at walmart. I also bought laundry detergent. I am glad to know how to make these things if needed, but if we can afford it I will buy it. I just used up the last of my homemade, so it lasted around 6 weeks or so- perty good huh?

My girls are bouncing off the walls because they are so excited about the waterpark. I haven't been to one since I was pregnant with Alexa. (4.5 years ago) I am excited because they have never been to one and they are finally old enough to really enjoy it. I will try to take some pictures, but my digital camera ain't waterproof, so...poor hubby has to work today :( I made him feel better by writing lots of encouraging and loving things on sticky notes and putting them all on his clothes in the closet, on his computer, in his bathroom area etc. He was surprised :)

See yall later!

I have been using my homemade laundry detergent....it has been a big savings & I really think it works fairly well.
I don't really like the homemade dishwasher detergent....I don't usually use it but we ran out of the store bought kind and money is tight so I'm using the borax and washing soda since I already have it on hand.

Have fun at the water park : )
