Homemade Dishwasher Tablets with Lemongrass
We have been cleaning like crazy. Isn’t that what you do when you are nesting at home? Maybe it’s spring, maybe it’s the added germs, either way, I am working hard on deep cleaning the home both naturally but effectively.
Sometimes everyday household products can be made with the simplest of ingredients. Recently, we made homemade dishwasher tablets using Lemongrass.
If Lemongrass isn’t your scent, also consider orange, lavender, or your favorite smell for the kitchen!
Homemade Dishwashwer Pods Ingredients
Only a few ingredients you might even already have in your home!
- 1-1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
- 3 tablespoons Salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 45 drops essential oils (we used Lemongrass)
- Silicon Mold
Optional: We stored ours in a glass jar with a lid. I would suggest a glass jar with an airtight lid. I see many of them come with an adorable chalk label.
DIY Dishwaswer Pod Directions
- Mix washing soda and salt together in a bowl.
- Mix water and oils together and pour into dry mixture. Stir well.
- Place a dollop of mix into a silicone mold and press firmly into the mold. Scrape away the excess with the side of the spoon.
- Let set overnight/24 hours to dry. Pop out of mold.
Place 1 tablet into your dishwasher soap tray and wash dishes as usual.
