DIY Dishwasher Tablets
Save money and keep your dishes sparkling with these DIY essential oil dishwasher tablets! No artificial fragrances or harsh chemicals, and they cost a fraction of the store-bought version.
Combine washing soda, borax, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a medium-size bowl.
Add vinegar. It will fizz a bit, but that is just the vinegar reacting with the baking soda. Mix well.
Mix in the essential oils and food coloring.
Finish mixing everything together until a small ball can be formed when you squeeze it in your hand.
Press the mixture firmly in ice cube tray or mold. Allow to dry completely. You can set it outside in the sun a few hours, or let it sit overnight.
Important: It’s a good idea to be sure your tablets will fit the compartment in your dishwasher before you put the mixture into a mold.
Use these DIY dishwasher tablets exactly how you’d use the ones you buy in the store.
