Wondering if you can make dishwasher tabs at home? You can!
One of the ways that I like to save is to make my own dishwasher tablets. The ingredients cost very little, and can be used repeatedly! If you have a homemade cleaning supply recipe you’d like to share, I’d love to hear it!
Here’s how I make dishwasher tablets:
Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz. – $4.05
Baking Soda – $.79 from Kroger
Vinegar – $.99 from Kroger
Salt – $.59 from Kroger (this salt I’ve had at least a year!)
Container – $1.25 from Dollar Tree
These took me about 10 minutes to make! This recipe made about 40 tabs, and the only ingredient I need more of is Baking Soda! I will be able to make at least hundreds more before needing more Washing Soda.
1 cup Baking Soda
1 cup Washing Soda
1 cup Salt
3/4 cup Vinegar
You can also use lemon juice in place of vinegar if you choose!
You just need to mix all ingredients together, set it to sit a minute, then using a tablespoon scoop them out onto a piece of wax paper. I have a Tupperware container to store mine in, but they can be stored in a ziplock bag or mason jar, also!
You can also double or triple this recipe if you use your dishwasher often or just want to make a big batch less often.
Let me know if you decide to make dishwasher tabs and tell me how it goes!
(Thank you, Rhonda, for the recipe!)
