I ran out of the dishwashing pellets and, seeing as the weather is totally crap and I didn't want to go out if I didn't have to, I searched the internet for a quick fix.

Lots of recipes out there to make your own, but most contain borax.

I found one that was simple enough.  Baking soda and white vinegar, mixed to a paste and put in the normal dispenser.

I used it, and it was fine.  No residue, except on one glass which was in the far left corner and had a light clouding, and that wiped off with a cloth, no dirty bits left (including 2 plates which had been filled with rolled oats). 

So, while it might not be good to use in your machine all the time, it certainly fills a gap when necessary.

DT.  I think you would find the baking soda and white vinegar would also be very good for cleaning the washer drain and leave it smelling clean.

Yeah Auntie Goo.  I dug around a bit on the web and the best recipe I could find for a cleanout of the machine was to put baking soda mixed with some lemon juice in a glass (pretty much full to brim), sitting in the cultery basket right way up, and a large cup or jug (also full) of white vinegar in the top rack, also right way up.

So I gave it a whirl (being as both are as cheap as chips) and voila!  The machine looks great and smells sweet.

Hehe.  My emergency dishwasher powder is....the sink and liquid detergent. 

I put vinegar through the dishwasher to keep it clean and smelling good too.
