DIY Dishwasher Detergent

Making your own dishwasher detergent is fast and easy, not to mention much cheaper than buying those expensive pods at the store. When you make it at home, your dishes are being washed without chemicals and come out squeaky clean. It only takes a few supplies too. My favorite part is that I can control how it smells with essential oils. It’s fun to switch it up. Here’s what you need to make a citrus scented DIY dishwasher detergent.

Try making it with lavender essential oil too. It’s lovely.
