Thrifty Thursday – Dish Washer Tabs

We all know that cleaning supplies take up a large part of the shopping budget! It’s crazy how much companies charge for these items knowing we will pay for them. Most of them are very simple recipes that can be made at home, or substituted with household items. We have all heard that you can make your own laundry soap, but dishwasher tabs? YES  you can, and it’s easy.

Here’s what you need:

1 Cup Borax

1 Cup Washing Soda

1/4 Cup Epsom Salt

Lemon Juice


1.Mix all the powders together well

2.Separate 1 cup of the powder into a separate bowl

3.Add 4 tbs lemon juice to the mixture. It will foam a little and get wet and sticky.

4. Pat mixture into the ice cube trays

5.Repeat steps 2 and 4 until your mixture is gone.

6.Place the mixture in the window for drying or leave out overnight.

Fill the trays and pat down the mixture.
