DIY Dishwasher Tablets

Dishwasher Tablets


  • 6 oz (3/4 c) lemon juice
  • 8 oz (1 c) borax
  • 8 oz (1 c) washing soda
  • 4 0z (1/2 c) kosher salt

Combine borax, washing soda and kosher salt. Stir in lemon juice, the mixture will fizz for a few minutes. Mix well, the mixture will be crumbly but moist.

I used a mini stainless steel scoop, table spoon size, to scoop the mixture on to a baking sheet lined with plastic wrap.

Let dry overnight.  Alternatively you could pack the mixture into molds to dry but that seemed like a lot of extra work. Use one Tablet per load.

Makes 46 tablets.

Confession: I haven’t tried these yet, they are still drying…  I will update this post once I try my DIY dishwasher tabs. Fingers crossed they work as well as I think they will.  #leapoffaith
