1 Cup Washing Soda
1 Cup Borax
1/4 Cup Epsom Salt
1 Package Lemon or Orange Flavored Unsweetened Drink Mix (For scent and citric acid)
Stir well to mix all these dry ingredients, then add 1/2 Cup white vinegar, a little at a time, stirring after each addition.
You may need to add more or less vinegar. The goal is to end up with a wet mixture that isn't runny. A tad wetter than what you would need sand to be, if you were making a castle or something. It will look like this...
Now, spoon this mixture into cube size molds. An ice tray would be ideal. I don't have any ice trays, so I used an 18 count egg carton and it worked just fine.
I was able to get exactly 18 tabs. Let the tabs dry overnight or longer. They need to be completely dry before you remove them from their molds. Store in a jar or some other container. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN!!!!!!! When ready to use, just toss into the bottom of the dishwasher. These will not fit into the dispenser. I use vinegar in my rinse agent dispenser, with no problems at all.
Even though I have used these with fabulous results and am tickled pink, I have to add that, if you choose to make and use these, you do so at your own risk and that I in no way guarantee that you will receive results similar to my own.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
