Did You Know?

Don't pre-rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Modern dishwashers do a great job of cleaning even heavily soiled dishes. Scrape off food and empty liquids, the dishwasher will do the rest. If you must rinse dishes first, use cold water.

Ingredients: Water, sodium citrate (plant-derived water softener), ppg-10-laureth-7 (plant-modified synthetic cleaning agent), sodium silicate (mineral-based alkalinity builder), citric acid (plant-derived pH adjuster), xanthan gum (plant-derived thickener), calcium chloride (mineral-based enzyme stabilizer), sodium hydroxide (mineral-based pH adjuster), protease and amylase (plant-derived enzyme blend soil removers), and benzisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone (synthetic preservative).

Fragranced with plant-based essential oils and botanical extracts*

This natural dishwasher detergent gel has been formulated to work in all dishwashers, please follow the instructions to get the best dishwashing detergent experience.

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 experience. Filling your dishwasher and washing full loads of dishes conserves water.

ADD DISWASHER DETERGENT GEL: Fill dishwasher dispenser cup 1/2- 2/3 full. Use less dishwasher detergent gel for soft water/smaller loads. For very hard water we recommend using Seventh Generation Rinse Aid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean the dishes! I have used many Seventh Generation products and have been happy with them, so when Target was out of the powder dishwasher detergent I figured this would be a viable substitute. I was wrong! Half of my dishes need to be re-washed after using this, and the ones that appear clean still don't feel clean. I will definitely not buy this product again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They weren't kidding.. They weren't kidding when they said the dishes would sparkle. (Preface: my husband LOVES dishwasher pods and since he does usually does the shopping that's what we've been using.) I've been buying more chemical-free products lately and have wanted to try 7th Generation for awhile now. I am so glad I did. When I unloaded the dishwasher I could not believe how sparkly/clear all of our dishes were! I don't think they were that clear when they came out of the original box.. The difference between this and the pods we usually use is insane. You definitely have a new customer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contact dermatitis I have been using seventh generation free and clear products for serval years due to my allergy to fragrance. My contact dermatologist has told me to stop using all products with Methylisothiazolinone. It is a perstive that many people have a reaction to. I will no longer be purchasing any more seventh generation products that cotanian this perservitve. This product contains Methylisothiazolinone. I am disappointed in seventh generation for allowing this perservitve in their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! "I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own." My family recently moved and a new house means a new dishwasher. I was pleasantly surprised with the Seventh Generation dishwasher gel. All of my dishes come out clean and with no film. I really enjoy the fact that the gel does not have a chemical smell when running through a washing cycle. We recently welcomed our first child and using natural products is even more important to me now. I will continue to use Seventh Generation's dishwasher gel because it cleans my dishes well and is better for my family and the environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle Dishwashing Detergent I received Lemon Scented Seventh Generation Auto Dish Gel for free in exchange for my honest opinion. The Seventh Generation dishwashing detergent is much gentler than the other brand of phosphate-free detergent I usually use. They are both phosphate-free, which means they won't pollute lakes and streams, but the other brand I use contains bleach, and the Seventh Generation detergent does not. This is where I found the only difference in their cleaning results. The other brand removes stains from my dishes and stains from the inside of my dishwasher, so everything stays looking bright and clean. The Seventh Generation detergent cleaned away food debris, but did not remove all stains, and left behind food discoloration that I wasn't accustomed to seeing on clean dishes. If you are looking for a gentle detergent that is safe for your family, while still removing food particles from your dishes, then Seventh Generation Auto Dish Gel will be the perfect fit for you.
