Toxin-Free DIshwasher Detergent

Once upon a time, I thought there would never be a dishwasher detergent that actually got my dishes clean.

You know…company-is-coming-over -this-is-not-a-drill clean detergent.

Before we get too far into the story, I’m assuming you’re here for the DIY, so look no further!

Silicone ice cube trays with lid

1 1/2 C Washing Soda

1 C Citric Acid

1/2 C Baking Soda

1/2 C Sea Salt

2 capfuls of Thieves Household Cleaner

20 drops NonGMO Grapefruit essential oil

Add all ingredients in a bowl and stir well.

When you add the Household Cleaner, add a small amount at a time and stir quickly.

It will start to foam up, but that’s okay. Keep stirring.

Then, press the mixture into silicone ice trays with lids.

HELPFUL HINT: Use 1/4 C Vinegar and 10 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil as your rinse aid!

Problem…Unsolved

I had switched to “Green” brands thinking this would fix things.

Nope.

White, filmy nastiness that was embarrassing to get out of the cupboard.

Strong smells still. Rewashing every dish by hand, which you know I don’t like doing.

My new “safe” ones were listed as toxic!

I felt defeated.

In that moment, I heard every person who ever said, “Everything gives you cancer anymore. Just get what works…”

But there was hope!

Finally. Answers!

Every couple months, I throw this simple recipe together. It’s my favorite by far.

One cube per load does the trick!

Option 2:

If you’ve never met the power of Thieves, you’ll be amazed at all it can do.

Because we love Thieves as an immunity booster in our house, we weren’t surprised when we learned it was in their amazing Dishwasher Detergent.

Option 3:

I recently learned that a capful of Thieves Household Cleaner works great in the dishwasher, and it’s true!

That makes 11 toxin-filled bottles I have ditched for this one cleaner!
