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 Residue I was so excited when I found this product. I have been using Seventh Generation dishwashing soap for years. I am so disappointed with the quality of this product. I have to have my dishes completely cleaned and rinsed before loading them into the dishwasher. Even then my glasses and silverware come out hideously spotted and filmy, and I use a premium rinse agent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job We use the powder with Asko DW. Well water (softened). I don’t clean the dishes off before loading and I also only fill the door mounted canister about 1/2 way. Washer uses a fan to dry the dishes, does not have a heater for drying. Does a great job. The most important factor for good results is to load the washer properly. Look at the owners manual or google topic. If you allow the water to circulate in chamber properly and use a good detergent (like SG) will provide best results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zero Problems, Works Great! After using the laundry soap and fabric softener, I found this dishwasher soap. It’s just as awesome as all the other products. I think the people complaining of spots or residue perhaps have less than great water or dishwashers. I have yet to have spots and I’m 3/4 through the box. I have a mast cell disorder so I’m thankful for these free and clear products that work and don’t leave a smell behind. Thank you Seventh Generation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Using it for already 5 years, it's the only one that my immune system accepts. I can;t have smells due to a.o. smell allergy that does swell my inner ear and nose and give racious headaches and vertigo. This product helps me a lot, Thank you 7th generation!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS! I bought this product over the weekend and also happened to be doing a lot of cooking during the same time. I ran my dishwasher 4 times in one day and Seventh Generation Dishwasher Detergent Powder cleaned everything without any issues. Will definitely buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaves terrible white residue on everything!! We made the switch from the toxic detergents we had been using. The detergent pouches leave a terrible white residue on everything and it is destroying our dishes and silverware.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cleans but leaves a powdery residue My first and only experience with a Seventh Generation product. I was sold on the clean and low toxicity of the ingredients since my wife and I decided to put the baby bottles in the dishwasher rather than keep hand washing them but we stopped after the second wash. The product leaves a white powdery residue on the clear glass bottles and this is unacceptable. We used powder detergents before but none left such residue.
