Loading a dishwasher properly is a skill that’s easy to take for granted. Our lives are so busy with juggling careers, family, and self care that loading the dishwasher often becomes an in-the-moment, see-where-it-fits task without a lot of thought behind it. However, learning some tips for effective dish placement, as well as the right products to get them squeaky clean using renewable, plant-based ingredients, can help improve your routine.
Here are some sustainable tips, dishwasher loading tricks, and healthy product suggestions that will take your dishwashing to the next level.
Trying to make every minute count on a busy day?
Pre-measured powdered detergent packs are very convenient for washing your dishes. Just insert one pack into the soap container and you’re finished! Choose packs that power away stuck-on food without the use of synthetic fragrances, dyes, or chlorine bleach.
Dealing with some seriously dirty dishes?
When pre-washing heavily-soiled items, choose a dish liquid that fights grease with the power of plant-based ingredients and has invigorating scents made from 100% essential oils and botanical ingredients that bring a little bit of nature into your home.
Did you just host a party or wine tasting?
Our rinse aid works wonders—especially if you’re washing a lot of glasses—and can help reduce spots and film so that your glasses and stemware come out shinier. Seventh Generation’s rinse aid is a USDA Certified Biobased Product 62%.
