I've been making my own dish tabs for years, but recently I tried a new recipe that is sooo much easier to make than the one I've been using. You only need 3 ingredients to make these homemade dish tablets. They will leave your dishes clean and sparkly and will help save you time and money!
I made a quick video showing how easy they are to make in real time...check it out below!
What you will need to make Homemade Dish Tablets:

1 Cup Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Dish Liquid (any brand will do)
Start by adding one cup of baking soda to a large bowl.
Add ¼ cup of citric acid.
Add 1 tablespoon of dish liquid.
Mix well using a whisk or you can use your hands like I do...I just think it is easier to mix it well this way.
Push the mixture into silicone ice cube molds. I used two different molds so I could use all of my mixture.
Wait about 10 minutes and level them off with your hand. They expand just a little bit, but much less than the old ones I used to make. Once you level them off, they shouldn't expand much more.
Let sit for at least 4 hours or overnight. They will harden like store bought dish tablets. Now just flip your molds over and push the tabs out.
They are ready to use! Use one tablet per load of dishes. Just place directly in your dishwasher and run a normal washing cycle.
Store them in an airtight container and keep them dry until time to use them. Happy cleaning!
