Save money — and a trip to the store — by making homemade dishwasher tablets with this easy DIY Dishwasher Tablets tutorial.
DIY Dishwasher Tablets
We all know how convenient it is to purchase packs of dishwashing tablets or pods in the cleaning aisle at the grocery store. But they are pretty pricey.
And with the number of loads that we have been running lately, the cost really adds up.
So, why not try making your own?
Start by gathering all the necessary supplies.
Add borax, epsom salt, and washing soda to a large bowl and stir to mix well.
Add essential oils.
Then, slowly add lemon juice, adding just enough to make the mixture damp enough to mold and stick together.
Spoon the mixture into a silicone mold. Use your hands to press the mixture into the mold to ensure it is packed in firmly.
Let tablets set until they are fully hardened. This will take at least 3 – 4 hours.
When fully set, gently remove each tablet from the mold.
Store your DIY dishwasher tablets in an airtight glass container near your dishwasher (but out of reach of children and pets).
