1 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
1/3 to 1/2 cup lemon juice
8 drops Lavender essential oil (or oil of choice)

Store in air tight container.
To Use: Put 1 tablet in your dishwasher detergent tray. If you have hard water you may want to add some distilled white vinegar (a natural rinse aid) to your “Rinse” compartment. The vinegar is a water softener that helps prevent spotting on dishes.
