DIY Dishwasher Detergent with doTERRA Essential Oils

Im loving creating these DIY recipes with my doTERRA Essential Oils! Extremely cost effective and this recipe is very powerful! We have been using this recipe in our dishwasher for the past month and are extremely happy with the results!

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent


2 cups Baking soda (great all-purpose cleaner)
2 cups Borax (natural cleaner and disinfectant)
1/2 cup Kosher salt or Epsom salt (softens the water)
1/2 cup vinegar (added cleaning power, liquid to help bind the ingredients)
15-20 drops of Lemon essential oil (added cleaning power, antibacterial properties, smells great!)


Mix all the ingredients together until well blended.

To Use:

Fill the soap dispenser with approx.  ¼ cup of the powdered mixture and add a squirt of On Guard Cleaner Concentrate to boost the cleaning power. Add approx. ½ cup of vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher with each load. Add more vinegar if you do not have a water softener.
