This was one of the very first things I decided to make on my own and it was super simple and worked out beautifully. Hope you enjoy!!

Toxin-Free Dishwasher Tabs

  • Prep Time: 30m
  • Yield: 24


  • 1 c Washing Soda
  • 1/2 c Baking Soda
  • 1/2 c Citric Acid
  • 1/4 c Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 c White Distilled Vinegar add 1 tbsp at a time as needed
  • 1/2 tsp. Castile Soap
  • 10-15 drops Lemon Essential Oil


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl
  2. Gradually add vinegar a little bit at a time and mix well (some fizzing will occur and the mixture will start to clump) You may not need the entire amount of vinegar, so add it a little at a time.
  3. Mix in castile soap and lemon essential oil
  4. Pack well into two ice cube trays (take your time doing this and make sure they are well compacted)
  5. Set ice cube trays out to dry for at least 24 hours in a sunny spot
