In my journey to become a toxic free home I thought I had eliminated all toxic chemical products from the house… until I went to do the dishes. I had forgotten all about the dish detergent for our dishwasher! I tried a few different options and while they were all natural and free of chemicals, I didn’t feel like my dishes got as clean as when I hand washed them. I was torn between skipping the dishwasher all together or going back to my regular dish detergent (or just never doing dishes again). I then found the 5 Little Homesteader’s homemade dish detergent tablets! They work great and my dishes look and feel clean!
