People are now into creating their homemade foods and supplies with natural products. This is how to make homemade dishwasher tablets. It saves money, as well as creating a fresh scent without the heavy chemicals. Get a cup of borax, ½ cup of Epsom salt, a cup of washing soda, and ¾ cup of lemon juice.


1 Cup of Borax (BUY HERE from Amazon)

3/4 Cup lemon juice (BUY HERE from Amazon)

1/2 Cup of Epsom Salt (BUY HERE from Amazon)

1 Cup of Washing Soda (BUY HERE from Amazon)

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. If there are any chunks, break it up and have it mixed all together. Have some wax paper with cardboard under it and shape the mixture into tablets to let dry on it. It is recommended to have a mold to pour the mix into so the pain of creating tablets manually isn’t needed. Press down to get rid of the air pockets that could form when molding them.

Dry the homemade tablets and then stick them in a container. It should make about 8 tablets in total. The cleanup is really easy to do, as it doesn’t leave any mess behind. Place the homemade tablets that are dry to prevent moisture from penetrating and causing the mixture to break up when drying. Putting it back together is really hard. It should work like a regular bought tablet at the supermarket for clean dishes.

Your dishes will sparkle.
