Dishwasher & baking soda question

Can I use just baking soda in my dishwasher? I don't have Borax to mix with it. I need to run a load but am out of detergent AND liquid soap to hand-wash. SO gets paid tomorrow and until then we have no money to spend at all. Will just baking soda work or is the Borax necessary? TIA!

I have used baking soda with a little shot of liquid, maybe try a dash of handsoap or shampoo if you have it.

I would think as long ad you use a hot water cycle and a heat dry you should be fine.
