  • 2 cups Washing soda (From the supermarket)
  • 2 cups Borax
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup White vinegar
  • 20-30 drops of Lemon essential oil



Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a spoon or gloved hands.

Now simply place the mixture into moulds or ice cube trays and press down firmly until packed hard. Try to use all the mixture into those two trays by pressing down extra firmly.

Let the tablets dry in a warm place overnight and then pop them out of the trays and store them in an airtight container in a dry place.


To Use:

Add 1 tablet to your dishwasher detergent compartment as you normally would.

For the rinse aid simply use white vinegar – add ½ – 1 cup of vinegar in a mug and place it on the top rack of your dishwasher and then start the cycle.
