I do. :) I use about 3/4 cup of baking soda to 1/2 cup of borax (that's for hard water, if you don't have hard water, you use them in 1:1 ratios). I use about a tbls per load. I also filled my rinse agent spot with a mixture of vinegar and lemon eucylpus EO. This part ended up being REALLY important for us. The dishes weren't quite getting clean until I added the vinegar and EO. Once I added them, they do great. :)

do you have to add the EO? Or can you just use vinegar?

vinegar will work by itself, but the eo will give it a good smell

We actually still had problems before I added the EO. They still weren't getting quite clean, even with the vinegar. So for us, the EO was important.

Essential oil. :) TTO might work instead of the lemon eucylpyus.
