1cup Kosher salt
6 teaspoonlow-sud dishwashign liquid soap
Mix the washing soda and kosher salt in a mixing bowl.
Scoop out about 2 tablespoon into the each muffin mold. You should have enough to fill the entire muffin evenly.
Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of Dishwashing Liquid Soap to each cup.
Add about 1-2 teaspoon of water to each cup.
Mix the dishwashing liquid soap, water and the powder. The powder should just get wet, not liquidy or runny.
Press the mixture down.
Leave the muffin pan to dry for at least 3-5 hrs or overnight. The longer it stays, the drier it will get.
When it’s time to take them out, gently, drop the muffin on a hard surface, to give it a good (but gentle) jolt. If you use the silicone mold, you can pop them out easily. Same with the ice cube tray.
Store them in an air-tight container.
You can buy any brand of salt, as long as it’s Kosher. Save the expensive sea salt for cooking. If you buy commercial dish soap, make sure it’s SLS-free.To form the tablets, you can use a silicone muffin pan which makes it easier to pop them out. You can also use ice cube trays.
