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 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it! This is the only dish washing detergent we use. We buy it in bulk from Amazon. We have soft water at our house and you don't need to use as much. Some folks complain of residue ... but I don't have that problem. If you have soft water, don't use as much. But, smells great, works great ... and ... it's gluten and nut free, which I have to use products that are free of these 2 items. Have been using it for years and will continue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't thoroughly clean the dishes. I am so so disappointed! I really wanted this product to work out. But I have tried this for multiple loads and it just doesn't clean the dishes thoroughly. I always have to re wash. It also leaves my dishwasher a lot dirtier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO. MUCH. RESIDUE. I bought this we week ago. I wash my dishes everyday. I have a huge family, so I use my dishwasher 1-2 times per day. I bought this product because I liked other Seventh Generation products. This one is just horrible. I have never in my life wanted to throw dishes, till I started using this product. I think they are cleaner BEFORE I put them in the dish washer, than when I get them out. I have a pretty new machine and just had to washer itself cleaned 2 weeks ago, so I know it's not the washer itself. I went from using Cascade, to using Seventh Generation. The day I started using this product, was the day I started hating my dishes. I have to wash them by hand, AFTER getting them out of my washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this We wash a lot of plastic bicycle type water bottles and reuseable food containers, and the scented Cascade we used for years was getting more and more annoying with the residual taste / smell. After a bunch of reading about everything from making our own detergent to commercial brewery cleaners I stumbled across seventh generation reviews, which had a overall high rating of course. So we bought a bottle thru Amazon and have been extremely impressed with it's performance. With only 2 of us at home nowadays, we only run the washer couple times a week, and we do not rinse, just scrape dishes and put in washer so things are well dried on when we start it up. We settled on the gel as I wanted to be able to adjust the amount of product for our dishwasher performance (low end Whirlpool) and stretch our dollars as much as possible. The seventh generation works so well we don't put any product in the 'pre-wash' cup, and only fill the main detergent cup about 70% the clear glass is not hazy, and almost totally spot free. Best of all though the plastics do not taste or smell like chemical deodorizers.

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!
