Avoiding chemicals is something I have been doing over the past couple of years. It started off with just following simple cleaners recipe and making my own all-purpose cleaner and look at me now – I am making everything on my own, from the all-purpose cleaner to even the dishwasher tablets!
If you want to learn more and figure out how to make your own then I am more than happy to teach you!
How To Make Dishwasher Tablets?
I have tried a lot of different recipes for dishwasher tablets but I want to tell you more about the one I like the most! It’s effective and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.
Now, you need washing soda which is perfect for cleaning ( 1 cup).
Then you also need baking soda which deals with greasy stains (1 cup).
The next thing I use is really weird – lemonade drink mix (the unsweetened kind) (3 packages). Believe it or not, it has antibacterial properties plus it adds a great scent to the tablets! Of course, you can also use essential oil, however, I have found that powder works best which is why I use the lemonade drink mix.
The next ingredient you need is salt (1 cup). It reduces the build-up of hard water.
And last but not least – you need a cup of water!
Prepare all the ingredients and mix them in a bowl. When you add the water the mixture will fizz – just wait a few minutes until it stops.
Add the mixture in ice cube trays and let it dry completely for a few hours. Then your dishwasher tablets are finished and you can start using them!
