Natural Dish Washing Tablets

Dish washing tablets and powders are SO expensive and I love how simple this recipe is to make my own! Knowing that the aroma’s and substances in the tablets and powder are good for me makes all the difference!

Makes: 850g (approximately 40 tablets) 


(for any essential Oil Ingredients visit Soul Collective )

100g fine salt (pantry item/market/supermarket)

300g sodium carbonate (washing soda)

250g citric acid

200g natural borax

30 drops of essential oils (my oil of choice is lemon) *see notes below

Silicone ice cube or mini-muffin tray

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, whisking until well combined.
  2. Using a tablespoon, scoop mixture into a silicone ice cube or muffin tray, and pack in firmly.
  3. Allow mixture to harden in a cool place (such as laundry), for at least 24-48 hours, or until very firm and dry to touch.
  4. Gently turn the tray upside down over a tea towel (see notes) and tap until tablets fall out. Transfer into an airtight container.
  • Place one tablet in the dispenser or on the floor of your dishwasher prior to operation.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
