Create your dishwasher detergent tablets

Published by Céline Dapzol on


  • 480g baking soda
  • 480g borax
  • 220ml white vinegar
  • 15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Method of Preparation:

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, combine the baking soda and the borax.

Step 2: Slowly add in the vinegar and essential oils. The vinegar will create a fizzing action.

Step 3: Stir to combine.

Step 3: Once combined, measure a full, rounded tablespoon of the mixture and add this to an ice-cube tray. Press down to form a tablet.

Step 4: Allow to dry out and harden overnight.

Step 5: The next day, onto a clean surface, carefully turn the tray overand allow the now solid tablets to fall out.

Step 6 : Place a tablet in the dish detergent compartment of your dishwasher and run the cycle as usual.
