Homemade Dishwasher Tabs

I’ve been in search of a healthy, non-toxic dishwasher tab recipe and found this one, which I ended up tweaking because I don’t want to use just any dish-washing liquid.

You will need:

1 cup baking soda
1/4 cup citric acid (found at Walmart with the canning supplies)
1 tbsp + 1 tsp Dr. Bronner’s lavender Castile liquid soap

Mix ingredients together in a bowl and put into ice cube tray compartments.  The mixture will expand a little as it sets, so just remove the excess from the top and add to another compartment if you overfill them.  Leave to set overnight, or at least for 4 hours.  They will come out of the ice cube tray when you twist it.  Store in a glass jar and keep away from moisture.  Use one per load.  Makes 12 tabs.
