Dishwasher Tablets – approved!!

April 25, 2019 tappingin2nature 2 Comments

Dishwasher tablets have been a sticking point for me. I love the Ecostore ones and the Abode dishwashing powder is next level and so low tox it’s a no-brainer. However, I wanted to make my own and it took me a few goes to get these ones down pat! They work so well so I am happy to endorse them on this website. Please let me know how you go!

Dishwasher Tablets

Ingredients

* 1/4 cup Bi-carb Soda

* 1/4 cup Citric Acid

* 1/4 cup Sea Salt

* 1 tablespoon Cornstarch

* 1/2 tablespoon Pure-Castile Liquid Soap (you could also use On Guard Cleaner Concentrate)

* 20 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil

* 15 drops Lemon Essential Oil

* Silicone ice cube mould (or similar)

Method

* Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

* Pour in the castile soap and essential oils, and mix. You should have a dry crumbly mixture that holds together when squeezed. Add a little more castile if needed.

* Pack the natural dishwasher detergent mixture into the mould and leave to dry for 24 hours.

* Once set, remove from the mould and store in an airtight container.

* I used Lemon Myrtle and it was amazing. Get your hands on these oils here.

* Every week, put some apple cider vinegar in the rinse aid compartment. This will help keep your dishwasher clean of grease and grime, and your dishes sparkling!
