Did You Know?

If every household in the U.S. replaced just one box of 45 oz. automatic dishwashing detergent containing phosphates with phosphate-free products, we could save 60 million pounds of phosphates from entering our rivers, lakes and streams.

This natural dishwasher detergent has been formulated to work with your automatic dishwasher. Please follow instructions to get the most effective dishwashing experience.

  1. LOAD DISHWASHER: Make sure items can be safely washed in a dishwasher. Silver, aluminum and stainless steel should be washed in separate loads to avoid discoloration. Load items with soiled surfaces facing the center of the bottom rack for optimum dishwashing.
  2. ADD DISHWASHER DETERGENT: Fill both pre-wash and main wash cups completely with the dishwashing powder. Use less dishwasher detergent for soft water/smaller loads.
  3. Close package after use and store in a dry place out of reach of children. For very hard water we recommend using Seventh Generation Rinse Aid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I recently purchased this powder and have had to re-run my dishwasher three times, dishes still not cleaned. I have used the pods prior and never had a problem, but I would not purchase this product EVER AGAIN. Is not the dishwasher either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish it worked better... I have been using 7th generation dishwasher soap for several years. It works well if I prewash all dishes, which is annoying and inefficient. Since using this detergent I have noticed our dishwasher racks are rusting, which drips rust water onto my dishes. I have had to replace them. After speaking with neighbors that use this they are having the same issue. I am wondering why a natural product may be causing this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this as unwilling to pay the price for other big name brands that I have had mixed results with. Was pleasantly surprised by how well this product worked. I found it worked better and more consistently than any product I have used before, even though I have hard water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We wanted to like this product... ...but it just doesn't work. Compared to the cache of old school Cascade with phosphates, this environmentally friendly project just doesn't even clean tea and coffee stains off cups. We've tried using the "soak and scrub" cycle, "high temp" cycle, etc. The only think that seems to work is washing the dishes by hand before washing them in the dishwasher, and that is both tedious and wasteful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this soap I have been using SG dishwasher powder for years. I had tried all the natural cleaners available and then found this. I am unsure why some people are having spotty results. I have never seen any. Also, I find that it cleans out coffee stains etc much much better than the other brands I tried. Love Seventh Generation. I now use this, the liquid dish soap and the liquid Laundry Soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job I tried other earth friendly dishwasher detergents with poor results. Seventh Generation's product cleans my dishes perfectly when I used a rinse aid. I have a few spots if I forget to refill the rinse aid, but there is no food left on my dishes, and I do not pre-wash my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
