Our good friend Georgie Hannan @georgie_kissinglife is back again for the first DIY video of 2021! In this one, she shows us how we can make a simple, cheap DIY swap to keep our dishes free of chemicals. Check out our feed for the Reel!

 

This is a simple four-ingredient recipe for making your own dishwashing tablets.

NO nasties in this recipe 

CHILD-friendly helping activity 

 

YOU need:

1 cup baking powder 

1/4 cup citric acid

1 tbsp cleaning concentrate (or you could use natural detergent)

Mould tray or ice block tray 

5 drops pure lemon essential oil

 

MIX together in a bowl

Spoon into moulds

Press down on the moulds for a few minutes to keep the pods flat. The mixture will pop up because of the baking powder.  

TIP: once you have mixed your ingredients, pop in mould straight away and don’t wait for the mixture to start to dry out.

Extra TIP: If you want to make toilet cleaning pods, use this recipe but try adding eucalyptus oil for extra germ-killing!

LEAVE for 4 hours or overnight until hard

STORE in an airtight reusable jar

Toy rotation might seem like an unnecessary level of effort at a time when everything seems like a push. But it's one job that will reap many benefits when you take the time, both for yourself (yay, tidy house!) and for your little ones. They'll rediscover special toys, giving you a chance to revel in more quiet, self-directed playtime with less 'I'm bored's', saving you money on purchasing new toys, and keeping things at home fresh and exciting.
