Image result for Large mason jar with dishwasher white powder

I have tried quite a few dishwasher detergent recipes and this one is the only one that really passes my cleanliness test. I love it!!


1 C. baking soda

½ C. course salt

½ C. citric acid

10 drops lemon essential oil

1 cap Thieves cleaner (or 10 drops Thieves essential oil)

** Vinegar


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let dry for a couple of hours (stir a few times during the drying period) as it will harden inside the glass container and be difficult to get out.

Use 1 tbsp. per load

Add vinegar in rinse aid compartment
