Non-toxic Dishwasher Powder

Ditch the Chemicals: Make Your Own Non-Toxic Dishwasher Powder

Harsh chemicals in conventional dishwasher detergents can leave residue on dishes and potentially harm the environment. For a safer, more eco-friendly solution, try this easy-to-make powder that's just as effective!

What You'll Need:


    1. Combine the dry stuff: In your bowl, mix the Epsom salt, baking soda, and washing soda. Whisk or use a fork to ensure everything is blended.

    1. Add the scent: Drop in your lemon essential oil. Start with 20 drops, and add a few more if you want a stronger fragrance.

    1. Mix it up: Whisk again to distribute the oil throughout the powder.

    1. Store it: Transfer the powder to your airtight container.

To Use:

Simply add 1 tablespoon of your homemade dishwasher powder to your dishwasher's detergent compartment. Run your dishwasher on a normal cycle.

Why These Ingredients?

    • Epsom Salt: Acts as a gentle abrasive and helps with water softening.
    • Baking Soda: A natural cleaner and deodorizer.
    • Washing Soda: More alkaline than baking soda, it tackles grease and tough stains.
    • Essential Oil: Provides a fresh scent, lemon is especially good for cutting grease.

Let's Customize!

    • Experiment with different essential oils like grapefruit, rosemary, or tea tree oil.
    • For extra cleaning power, add 1/2 cup of citric acid.

Enjoy the sparkling clean dishes and the peace of mind that comes from using safe and natural ingredients!
