Dishwasher Detergent Pods


Feel good about making a batch of these additive-free dishwashing pods that feature the purifying aroma of tangerine & lemon essential oil and vinegar as a rinse aid.

2 cups washing soda (sodium carbonate) 
2 cups Borax (sodium borate) 
1/2 cup kosher salt 
1/2 cup white vinegar 
2 teaspoons Tangerine essential oil 
2 teaspoons Lemon essential oil

1. In a bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients until a paste forms.
2. Portion and press the mixture into silicone baking mold or flexible ice cube tray.
4. Allow to dry 24 to 48 hours.
5. Pop the pods out of the mold and store in an airtight container.
6. Use one pod per dishwasher cycle. To provide a more spot-free rinse, place 2 to 3 tablespoons of white vinegar in a small upturned dish on the top rack at the beginning of your dishwashing cycle.

Note: Look for washing soda and Borax in the laundry aisle.
