I found this on another site and wanted to share. Those darned storebought dishwasher tabs are SO expensive. Borax and washing soda should both be available in the laundry aisle at the supermarket. Use rubber gloves when mixing the ingredients and packing into ice trays.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix dry ingredients together very well; add enough lemon juice to make an even paste (approximately 4 tablespoons per cup of dry ingredients).
  2. Pack.
  3. firmly into ice cube trays; let dry overnight (up to 24 hours).
  4. Pop out of trays and let dry completely; store in airtight container.
