  • 1 Cup
    Washing Soda
  • 1 Cup
    Baking Soda
  • 15 packets
    True Lemon


  1. Gather Supplies

  2. Put dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and combine.

  3. Add water and wait for fizzing to stop. Give the mixture another good stir.

  4. Spoon mixture by the tablespoon into your ice cube tray or equivalent. I used mini silicone muffin cups. Press the spooned mixture down as flat as possible. Use the back of your spoon or scoop. Consider that the final shape needs to fit in your dishwasher's dispensing compartment.

  5. Set the tablets out to dry. I took mine outside and they dried in a few hours in our Florida heat.

  6. Gently take the dried pods out of their molds and place in a storage container.

  7. Use white vinegar as a rinse aid.
