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.
