DIY Green Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Recipe

TESTED: This recipe did not work well for me. However, I live in an area with really, REALLY hard water. So all of my dishes came out cloudy and I had to end up going out to buy some Cascade and run the heavy cycle twice. Glasses still didn't come out clean so I had to take them all out and wash them by hand.
Update: The dishwasher I was using died shortly after this, (it was ancient), and we got a newer model which works a lot more effectively. I will be trying this recipe again in the new washer.
