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 ✔️
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
