Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder Hack

We finally finished our dishwasher pods that we bought from Costco when we first moved into our home (10ish months ago). I have been waiting anxiously to use my Thieves Dishwasher Powder.

In some reviews, members were saying that when they used a full scoop of powder, it would leave spots on their dishes. So the best amount to use is 1/4 scoop.

I was in a team Zoom meeting and we were sharing different “hacks.” One member had told us how we can double our dishwasher powder. I also found this YouTube video from Kelsey Weeks.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of salt (not pictured)

  • 1/2 cup of citric acid

  • 1 cup washing soda

  • 1 cup baking soda

  • A container to hold your powder – I washed the Kirkland brand box to reuse

  • Essential Oils (optional) – I chose lime and grapefruit

I added the essential oils last and used a spoon to mix it all together and to break up any clumps. Be careful not to inhale the powder while you’re mixing.
