Lemon and lime dishwashing powder

Lemon oil has an amazing ability to cut through grease, making it the star ingredient for this recipe. The method is simple, all you’ll need is a handful of basic ingredients and a jar to mix up.

Washes about
35–40 loads

 

11/2 cups baking soda or washing soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/3 cup fine salt

10 drops lemon essential oil

10 drops lime essential oil

 

Combine all the ingredients in a large glass jar, screw on the lid, and tip upside down 4–5 times to mix well.

Use 1 tablespoon per load as needed.

For an extra clean load, add white vinegar to the rinse compartment, and wash as usual.
