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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time trying! I've been using the dish soap, hand soap, and laundry detergent. I gave it a whirl after realizing I had no pods left, so the dishes were in the washer for 1.5 days. I bought the powder. Dishes are done and are squeaky clean--amazing!! I have baby bottles, wooden spoons, regular dishes and glasses and it blasted thru everything. Highly-Recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible detergent I bought this and my dishes are covered in a nasty film and they taste salty. Cannot get them clean. It is terrible. Aparently this is not uncommon although people have respnded to these reviews saying this film is not normal. Well reading the other reviews it is. DO NOT BUY

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.
