Homemade Dishwasher Detergent Tabs
DIY & Crafts
2 cups Washing soda or Baking soda (cuts grease, great all-purpose cleaner)
2 cups Borax (natural cleaner and disinfectant)
1/2 cup Kosher salt or Epsom salt (reduces the effects of hard water)
1/2 cup vinegar (added cleaning power, liquid to help bind the ingredients)
15-20 drops of real lemon really cuts the scum and cleans well
!.Mix all the ingredients together with a spoon. (The addition of the vinegar will cause a little fizzing, but not much.)
2. Once all the ingredients are well combined you will notice it actually will start clumping all by it
actually will start clumping all by itself.
3. Transfer the mixture into two ice cube trays and press down until each ice cube compartment is hard packed with detergent. If you packed them all down really well, you should use all of the mixture in those two trays.
4.Now the hardest part for me….waiting. These babies need to DRY good and hard before you use them. Put them in a dry, sunny spot (preferably one you won’t see so you won’t be tempted to touch them before they’re good and dry) and let them sit for at least 24 hours.
5.When they are good and hard and DRY, unmold them from the trays and store in a container with a tight-fitting lid.
How to use
Add 1 tablet to your dishwasher detergent compartment.
I don't have hard water and the dishes came out clean if you have hard water add a 1/4 cup of vinegar to the rinse.
