Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1 c
washing sodasoda (cleaner)
1 c
baking soda (cuts out grease)
3 pkg
unsweetened lemonade drink mix ( added cleaning power, antibacterial and smells awesome)
1 c
of kosher salt (reduces hard water build up - you might be able to reduce this amount if you have soft water
1 c
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients together.
2
If you are using this as a dry powder: Omit the water. Then pour all dry ingredients into an airtight container. Consider adding in a bag of uncooked rice in a clean cloth to help keep the dry mixture from clumping. Add one tablespoon of dry powder mix to your dishwasher dispenser. Also use vinegar or jet-dry in your rinse dispenser, too.
3
If you are making tabs: Add water, wait for fizzing to stop (about 1-2 minutes). Then add your mixture to ice cube trays, pressing with your fingers or back of a spoon. Let dry in a warm and sunny spot for 24 hours or till completely dry. Remove and add to an airtight container. Add one tab to the dishwasher dispenser. Also use vinegar or jet-dry in your rinse dispenser, too.
