If you love the convenience of those handy dishwasher tablets, there’s a quick and easy way to make them at home — and it’ll save you money!
How to make your own dishwasher detergent tablets
In addition to an old ice cube tray, here’s what you’ll need to make the tablets at home:
- 1 cup washing soda
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup salt
- ½ cup lemon juice
According to Household Hacker, simply combine the ingredients in a bowl and pack the mixture into an ice cube tray, freezing them until they get hard.
You can store your homemade tablets in a jar until you’re ready to use them.
If you’re worried this won’t clean your dishes properly, One Good Thing by Jillee recommends adding three drops (no more) of dishwashing liquid to each load.
