Ready to do this right?
I have a few recipe options to guide you in rocking this out:
ps ... I experimented with over 10 different ingredient approaches and had lots of flops before landing here ;)
Version A: Dish Tabs
(makes approx 24 tabs at a cost of $0.21 each vs. store-bought natural tabs at $0.35 ea)
Wear gloves as you mix (ingredients can dry out your skin)the consistency you're shooting for is like packing snow:
1. Mix all dry ingredients in a glass bowl and stir with fork or whisk
2. Mix all liquids (including essential oils) into a separate glass bowl and slowly add to the dry mix
3. With gloves on - mash it all together until if feels like packing snow (add a little water if needed)
4. Pack the mixture into a 2 tbsp scoop and then tap onto drying sheet
5. Let dry for 24 hrs (ideally in the sun ... if you have a dehydrator
you could pop them in there for a few hours)
TIP: add vinegar to your rinse aid section.
