Dishwasher Tablets
DIY. Low Tox. Natural Living
When choosing products to use in our houses, it seems easiest to just grab whatever items are available at our local stores. However, those products may not be the safest. Sadly many of them - even the “green” ones - contain ingredients you do NOT want in your house or anywhere near your family.

  • Formaldehyde 
  • Phthalates 
  • VOCs - Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gases that are emitted into the air. 
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) 
  • Ethanolamines (MEA, DEA, and TEA) 
  • Triclosan 
  • Fragrance - The word “fragrance” can appear on a label and contain an enormous list of ingredients that a company is not required to disclose, as it is considered a ‘trade secret.’ That means a product could contain some awful ingredients and the consumer wouldn’t even know!
These are just a FEW of the ingredients you want to avoid when bringing products into your home. But my oh my! Doesn’t that sound exhausting to have to read label after label, wondering if what you’re using is safe?

Dishwasher Tablets

A year ago, I embarked on a wondrous journey of crafting custom dishwasher tablets. It's become so much more than just an activity - it has turned into our own little homes homeschooling science experiment full of surprises! Our daughter loves joining in the fun and learning new things along the way; sometimes we even get lucky enough to have unicorn-shaped tablets appear at random!

These are free from fragrance, perfume (which is a fancy word for a cocktail of chemicals and hidden ingredients).

Watch the STINK DOC here to see why I decided to ditch anything that contained the ingredients "Fragrance", "Parfum and "Perfume".

What you need:

1 C bicarbonate 

1/2 C salt 

1/4 C citric acid 

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner, the secret sauce 

10 drops of Lemon essential oil 

How to make: 

Add all dry ingredients to bowl give it all a good mix.

Add wet ingredients to dry, mix together well.

Spoon mixture into moulds. Pressing down firmly. 

Leave to set for 24hrs

Place tablets in an air tight container.

Thieves Household Cleaner. What is it?

It is a plant-based, ultra-concentrated cleaner that can be used on virtually every surface of your home… bathrooms, kitchens, cabinets, counters, floors, furniture, toys, carpets, mirrors, glass, wood, walls, and more! This has replaced all cleaners under my sink. If you’re a little unsure about using it on something, go ahead and test it in an inconspicuous area. I have personally never had an issue using it on ANYTHING. It’s the only cleaner I use!

AND it’s safe to use around your pets and kids, too! It’s created with naturally occurring surfactants derived from coconut and sugars, so you get a powerful clean without harmful, abrasive chemicals. It’s even septic safe!
