Homemade dishwasher tablets

Homemade dishwasher tablets

These homemade dishwasher tablets are made with all natural whole non-toxic ingredients. What you clean your dishes with is important as if there is any residues, then we too will be ingesting them.

Commercial cleaning products contain lots of toxic chemicals and fragrances and these affect our health and our hormones and our waterways. Choosing non-toxic products or making your own is the best option.

Here is a recipe to make dishwasher tablets and as you can see from the ingredients, there is nothing ‘bad’ in it.


  • 1 ½ cups washing soda

  • 3 tablespoons salt

  • ½ cup water

  • 45 drops of essential oils (e.g. lemon)

  • Silicon mould



  1. Mix washing soda and salt together in a bowl.

  2. Mix water and oils together and pour into dry mixture. Stir well.

  3. Place a dollop of the mix into a silicone mould and press firmly into the mould. Scrap away the excess with the side of the spoon

  4. Let set overnight/24 hours to dry.

  5. Pop out of the mould.


To use:

  • Place one tablet into your dishwasher soap tray and wash dishes as usual.
