Back in March I made a homemade dishwasher soap recipe. It is what I’ve used to clean my dishes since. It’s lasting forever- we’re still using the same batch.
The longer I used it the more I thought about how great it would be to turn it into tablets. I knew it had to be simple.
Here is how I did it.
You Will Need:
- One batch of homemade dishwasher soap recipe (or whatever you have left of it)
- 1/2 c water (you won’t use it all)
- 24 cavity square silicone mold
- 1 TBS measuring spoon
- Purify essential oil
Take the clean silicone mold and add 1 TBS of homemade dishwasher soap to each mold.
Fill each mold square one by one.
No worries if there are some lumps, I will show you how we will get rid of those in a minute.
Grab your water, tablespoon and the essential oil.
Put one drop of Purification oil in each square over the detergent mixture.
Purification has amazing purifying properties and it smells awesome!
Use the spoon and add water to each square.
ONLY ADD like 1/4th of a TBS of water at a time. A little water will go a long way. It may not look like it, but it will.
Use the spoon to kind of chop the detergent up and work it into the water. It will all mix together. Add a drop or so of water if you need to.
Once it is all well combine use the back of the spoon to press the detergent tightly into the mold.
Let it sit for 24-48 hours on the counter to dry 100%.
Once the tablets are dry they will pop right out of the mold and there will be no water residue left behind in the mold.
They pop out super easy.
Put the in a container and store them on your counter.
How easy was that?!
I love it better than scooping it out and it keeps the detergent from clumping and sticking together.
