Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Measure the Sodium Carbonate and the Sodium Borate and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add 2 oz. of European Spa Salt-Medium Grain and mix with a wire whisk. 
  4. To dry ingredients, add 4 oz. of vinegar and 1.5 ml Lemon Essential Oil.
  5. Mix ingredients together well until all are incorporated.
  6. Take a small amount of mixture in your hand and squeeze to see if it holds together. If it does not, add a small amount of vinegar until it clumps together.
  7. Lay out the 3 plastic molds on a table and begin to fill the cavities. Pack the mixture in tightly so the mixture stays together when unmolded.   
  8. Let set to dry for around 24 hours.
  9. Remove from molds and package.
  10. We filled 4 Poly Bags, 10 x 3, with 5 tablets each and tied the top with raffia.
  11. Label product accordingly.
  12. TO USE: Place one tablet into the detergent chamber of your dishwasher. If it is too large, crumble up the tablet and add to the chamber.
