Composition of tablet means for dishwashers
Before proceeding to the manufacture of tablets for dishwashers, find out what they are made, arguing the feasibility of our idea. Most of the buyers are not looking at the composition and buys means trusting advertising.
Manufacturers claim that the damage from the minimum of household chemicals, oblivious to the fact that the total impact of the components it increases significantly.
The most harmful components are chlorine and chlorine-containing substances, formaldehyde, phosphates and phosphonates, surfactant and hydrochloric acid. Many of them are part of the tablets for dishwashers. Even after repeated rinsing in hot water of chemical compounds not completely cleaned tableware.
Statistics show that in the year into the body of each person falls to 0.5 liters detergent. This happens due to poor quality rinsing dishes
Chlorine and its compounds can cause a variety of diseases, such as hypertension, allergies, anemia, and other common ailments. For this reason, in some EU countries banned substances containing chlorine.
SAS - substances that connect the water molecules and fat, so they are well cleaned surface, but at the same time and cleave human sebum. There are three types:
- anionic - the most effective, cheap, but also harmful, as tend to accumulate in the body;
- cationic - cause less damage and have a bactericidal effect;
- nonionic - the most harmless, degradable to 100%.
Frequent and excessive use of surfactant-containing household chemicals, leads to reduced immunity, defatting and skin aging, develop allergic reactions. Action intensifies phosphates, promotes the penetration of substances through the skin into the bloodstream.
Accumulate in vital organs, they lead to dysfunction. Health Standards, surfactants should not exceed 5%.
Preparation of tablets for PMM own hands
After reviewing the composition of the tablets, we conclude that the agent is rather offensive and it makes sense to spend time on his production of their own hands.
Soda and juice squeezed from a lemon in the composition of the tablets makes them completely harmless. As the detergent component can be used as soda ash
Household cleaners besides cheaper factory.
Ingredients for homemade preparations
For home-made with their own hands for dishwasher tablets need a simple and affordable components:
- Baking soda - 2 cups.
- Water - 1 cup.
- Salt - 1 cup.
- Citric acid - 1/2 cup.
For the formation of tablets needed silicone or plastic containers for ice.
One soda glass is poured onto a baking oven and placed on a half hour at 200 degrees. To soda not to burn, during the heating, it was stirred. Extracted from the oven, it gets looser and matte consistency suitable for forming tablets.
Ingredients for the preparation of detergent tablets should be thoroughly mixed until a homogeneous plastic mass, from which it is easy to form a desired tablet form
Soda is poured from the oven into the bowl, there is added to a conventional soda glass, citric acid and salt. All mixed and added to a little water. A mixture of froth, it is necessary to wait until the foaming process stops, and then pour a little water. This is done several times.
Then, all carefully mixed and expanded in one or one and a half teaspoons into molds for ice. It should be done quickly, as the mixture thickens quickly. Leave the tins for half an hour, then remove the self-made tablets and put them in a jar, close airtight lid.

Comparison of factory and home-made tablets
The main differences ready and self-made tablets, as already noted, is part of the price. Household chemicals in industrial production contains no harmful components and is much more expensive.
The substances included in the compressed tablets dissolve, rather than simultaneously in a certain moment. When they are used to clean and refreshing dishes, performed routine maintenance
Consider the basic categories of factory tablets that differ in chemical composition and price:
- Relatively inexpensive basic tablets, consisting of three components.
- Environmental biodegradable tablets without phosphates. Ideal for allergy sufferers.
- Capsules - tablets dissolving shell.
- Universal multicomponent tablets, to the base composition to which is added components crystal washing, antimicrobial agents, conditioners, perfumes, and others.
Costly tablets compared to analogs cheap industrial production more efficient and safe.
Testing the quality of washing
By quality washing improvised means closer to the base tablets. When testing the homemade tablets revealed that the effectiveness of their action is almost as low-cost manufactured goods. Biodegradable eco-friendly tablet, as well as hand made, do not contain harmful substances, but are much more expensive and provide an excellent result.
Modern detergent tablets 3 to 1 or 1 to 7 are effective provided that they are used in the new model machines that have the ability to recognize them. The most popular brands - Finish, Frosch, Bio Mio, and a number of other
Capsules provide high quality wash, convenient in that soluble jacket provides protection from accidental exposure to moisture. Comparison of the results of washing tablets with multi-component not in favor of home-made. The first is much more efficient, because they contain the basic and additional components.
Evaluation component composition
Cleanliness of dishes and the machine itself as a part of the tablets provide:
- detergent, as the major component;
- salt for water softening and protecting the inside of the machine from scale, if it is missing on the dishes remain divorces, whitish plaque and stains;
- rinse, and fixing the reinforcing effect of the detergent;
- descaler, not giving form limescale in the water if the water is hard;
- degreaser splitting fat layer settling inside the machine;
- deodorizer that eliminates unpleasant odors;
- additional substances of different actions.
Composition of tablets improvised limited set of available tools used in the household.
Soda, citric acid and other ingredients are universal coping well with the tasks
Components within the factory tablets are consistently involved in the work at the right time. In tablets, made with their own hands, there is no such technology.
Tablet means for dishwashers homemade cheaper and safer, and their composition can be adjusted to fit your needs. In this there is a negative point:
- brute force with a liquid detergent for dishes will have a negative influence on the quality of the washing machine and can hurt;
- an excess amount of sodium will lead to the fact that the tablet will be poorly soluble;
- excess of citric acid can cause damage to the plastic parts.
Dosage industrial tablets, unlike the self-made, is regulated in accordance with the GOST, W and other rules.
Other signs for comparison
In tablets, made with his own hands, imperfect appearance - this is another argument in favor of home-made counterparts. Issued at the factory tools are much more aesthetic.
When choosing a factory pills you do not have to spend their own time on the selection, the search for ingredients and manufacturing.
When mixing the mixture to tablets you need to take care of safety. Gloves and a mask will protect you from the aggressive action of soda and powder on the mucous membranes.
Conventional tablet weighing 16 grams, obtained industrially, it is worth 9-10 rubles. Multi-component tools are even more expensive. Cost improvised tablets based ingredients rates significantly below. A simple calculation shows that 31 tablet you spend 54 rubles, that is, one tablet will cost 1.75 rubles.
Both types of tablets are worthy of attention
We dosed packaging of industrial and domestic manufacturing has a number of general advantages. They can not spill, pour, or download more than the norm. They do not take up much space and is easy to store. Finished tablets are stored in their original packaging, made with his own hands - in a closed glass jar or plastic container with a lid.
Dishwashing liquid for washing can not be used in cars. At the same time active substances are tablets, powders and gels used in dishwashers, have a negative effect on the skin of hands
Dosed composition tablets factory is regulated by normative documents, home - recipes, tested by experience.
Tablet tools clean utensils as good and often better than other detergents.
