It Works

Energy Smart Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Gel is formulated for high performance cleaning in low energy settings. This product is formulated with advanced enzyme technology to give the same performance in cold and warm water. Not only is this product formulated for cold water, but each household can save $20 per year using low energy settings*.

*Energy savings are based on using the Normal Cycle, without Heated Dry or Sanitize cycles, on an Energy Star compliant dishwasher, in a home with an electric water heater set at 120oF, washing 215 loads per year, as compared to the same dishwasher using the Normal Cycle with Heated Dry and Sanitize cycles. Dollar savings assume an energy cost of $0.11 per kilowatt-hour. Results may vary based on dishwasher model and cost of energy.

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 rinse dishes first, use cold water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! I was given an opportunity to test the the new Seventh Generation energy smart dishwashing detergent. Please note I was not financially compensated in any way. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleaning capability of this detergent. Light or heavily soiled loads were equally coming out clean. The detergent has a nice pleasant smell and is the consistency of a gel. Priced at around $5.50 I feel that it is a very good buy. I also use a rinse aid (Eco Me) in my dishwasher. Coupled with this new detergent I think I have found my new go to combo for wonderfully clean dishes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing result! I received a bottle of Seventh Generation Energy Smart automatic dishwasher detergent free for review purposes. This detergent has completely changed my opinion about washing dishes in the dishwasher! Let me tell you why. 1) This is a safe formula for my family to use as it is a plant based formula with no harsh chemicals. 2) I hated using the dishwasher, feeling like it never truly cleaned my dishes. So I always had to rewash. After using this detergent, it cleans my dishes where they are honestly shining !!! No food left on any dish!! Cleaned milk from bottles. 3) also, my dishwasher is now clean! A little plus! 4) & it saves $20 a year using hot or cold water! Switching my detergent for good!! Would recommend to anyone!
