It is not generally possible to change the solubility of a substance
without changing the substance. Therefore your approach would be
mechanical entrainment. You could try pressing the substance, along
with a large amount of insoluble binder, into a dense briquette.
Another approach might be to place the substance into a sealed
container perforated by one or more small holes. The size and
quantity of holes determines how fast the substance diffuses out.

I don't agree at all,Barry. Ever had a packet of automatic dishwasher
powder turn rock hard when stored for a long time? Products of this
type contain silicates and phosphates. Suggest the original poster
experiment by dissolving the diswashing powder in water, together with
some Hydrogen Peroxide to destroy the free chlorine. Add various
amounts of toilet powder, heat to dissolve & cast into moulds. Trial
and errror is definitely need here to establish the optimum
temperature and proportion of the ingredients.
