Hypoallergenic Dishwasher Powder

If this article is helpful to you, please share on your favorite network.

This is a hypoallergenic dish washer powder recipe. It is soy, coconut, and surfactant free, with no mixing required. Most dishwasher detergents have many ingredients, making it hard to find something that is both green and allergy friendly.

Washing Soda and Ascorbic Acid
Despite having only two ingredients and has worked very well for us. The results are comparable to a leading brand of dishwasher premium pods.
First we fill the detergent cup to the line with Vitamin C powder: Bulk Supplements Ascorbic Acid (multiple sizes available)

Step 1
Then we fill the remainder of the cup and half the pre-wash compartment with washing soda: Arm & Hammer Washing Soda

Step 2

For the rinse aid compartment we use organic distilled vinegar. But for a more powerful rinse you could use 6% cleaning vinegar: Heinz Cleaning Vinegar
