I've used washing up liquid on occasion. It sort of works OK. You have to use really tiny amounts because of the excessive lathering caused by the blades, so it's no good putting anything very dirty in, like a pan. So, while it suffices in a pinch, it isn't a long-term solution.

Loads of information here http://tipnut.com/homemade-dishwasher-d ... t-recipes/
Some of which might even be useful.

Thanks , wrong way round I know but I also googled the question after the post on here and it seems people say not to use it because of the lathering and excessive amounts of bubbles alluded to by Green Aura. I haven't gone through Odsox's link yet but did come across a note about using washing soda as it is both kinder and cheaper.

Edit
Just clicked on the link to see washing soda :oops:
