Detergent pods definitely make cleaning easier – just throw in a small pouch, and you are good to go. You no longer have to worry about measuring and spilling the liquid detergent! But the problem is these detergent pods are more expensive compared to liquid types. Since they are more convenient, they usually come at a higher price. But don’t worry! You don’t have to pay premium prices anymore with this easy money saving hack by the_gooch on TikTok. You can make your own DIY dishwasher pod at home by just pouring liquid detergent into an ice cube tray! How easy is that? It definitely saved me a lot of money and time.



Materials You Need to DIY Your Own Detergent Pods

  • liquid dishwasher detergent (he used cascade complete)
  • clean ice cube tray

Note: A 125-ounce cascade liquid detergent bottle could provide enough detergent for 125 loads as it usually only requires one ounce per load.

Step 2:

Once all the trays are filled, place them in the freezer and let them sit until the detergent is completely frozen. You can use silicone trays for this hack, as the cubes are easier to remove. Always remember to use liquid dishwasher detergent and never put dish soap in the dishwasher to avoid extra suds. Lastly, keep these homemade detergent pods away from other ice trays in the freezer. You surely don’t want to put this in your drink. You can label the trays, so you can easily identify which are ice and which are not.
