The ingredients:
1 cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
1 cup Baking Soda
1 cup Kosher Salt (more or less, the purpose is to reduce water
spotting. if your water is soft you can use less)
3 TBS. Lemon Juice
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients and pour a shallow amount into ice cube or other
small trays that will fit your dishwashers soap dispenser.
(I have some nifty, tiny plastic squares I got at the
dollar store that fit my dishwasher just right).
These don’t shrink as they dry, so whatever you pour is what the size will be.
Allow to dry for 24 hours, or until all liquid is absorbed.
Pop out of the mold and store in an airtight container.

    I tried this recipe and had a massive bowl of cement like mixture, it does not pour! Did not turn out at all!

    Sounds interesting... I'm gonna have to try this one. I know it's been years since I bought store-bought "Laundry Soap". And usually a batch of my dry powder, kept in dry dorm for storage purposes, then add water to it in a 2 L bottle when needed lasts a very long time.

    Thanks! I tried this a few days ago, and it worked. I had given up up on buying the tablets and started buying gel packs instead to use in the dispenser. Now that I know, I think I will make some home made tablets! 😊
