1/3 Cup Washing Soda (cleaner)
1/3 Cup Baking Soda (cuts out grease)
1 package unsweetened lemonade drink mix (added cleaning power, antibacterial and smells awesome)
1/3 Cup of Salt (reduces hard water build up – you might be able to reduce this amount if you have soft water)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with a spoon. At this stage you can actually just leave it all as a powder.
Just add a tablespoon to your washer dispenser and wash as usual. The problem is that the powder can harden in the container, so try a clean sock tied up with rice in the container with it to help with that. I prefer the tabs so I can just grab one out and don’t have to worry about the mix hardening.
If you want to make tabs though, just add 1/3 cup water…
When you pour in the water it will fizz. Wait until the mixture is totally done fizzing and bubbling (1-2 minutes).
Once all the ingredients have combined together into clumpy texture similar to really moist sand you can spoon it into mold. I used a flexible candy mold but you can use an ice cube tray, soap mold, etc.
