Wild Dishwashing Powder
We're always on the lookout for ways we can make our own cleaning products using bulk items, to avoid those pesky plastics and other nasties! Here is a recipe for dishwashing powder that you can make yourself, for use in dishwashing machine.
Recipe makes 1kg of powder.
- 350g Borax
- 350g Washing Soda (make this by heating bicarbonate of soda in an oven tray for 1hr at 200°C)
- 150g Sea Salt
- 150g Citric Acid
- 10 drops Essential Oils (Recommend 5 drops each of Eucalyptus and Lemon Myrtle)
Wearing a mask, combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir until there are no more lumps. Funnel into reused containers. Do not inhale powder.
Use 1 Tbsp per dishwashing load. Store in a dry place and away from children.
We use a slosh of white vinegar instead of rinse aid and this combo works amazingly well!
