It Works

Energy Smart easy-to-use dishwasher packs give you the perfect amount of grease-fighting dishwasher detergent for a total clean the first time. Formulated with advanced enzyme technology to give the same performance in cold or warm water, and using the low energy settings can save up to $20 per year!

*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 4 out of 5 by from great product with occasional problem I have been using this product for a couple years now, and have been very pleased with the cleaning power and the fact that I can feel good about using it. However, now and then it doesn't dissolve and remains intact after the washing. Yesterday I ran the dishwasher 3 times, with new pod, and it never did dissolve (big waste of water)! Any thoughts on why that would happen randomly?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and leaves my dishes very clean! I received these for being a Generation Good Community Member. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to use them! My toddler loves to help with the dishes, but getting the dishwashing detergent into the cup holder was always an issue. It was something she continually wanted to help with, but really couldn't due to the weight of the containers and the mess that would ensue. These little pods do the trick (just make sure hands are dry and then clean them off after placing them in the cup). These do a wonderful job of getting our dishes clean, which runs the gamut from barely dirty to had mac and cheese on them for a week without knowing there was a rogue plate in the house. Whatever we've put them through, they have delivered. Thank you, Seventh Generation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too big These work really well, when they fit into the dispenser of my dishwasher. It was a real struggle to manage to get the dispenser cover closed with one of them in it. I found myself trying to squeeze them into a flatter shape about half the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Better Than Expected! I received a complimentary sample as a Generation Good member. All opinions are my own. I have personally food that some dishwasher detergents that claim to be natural either truly aren't or they don't work very well at all. But Seventh Generation has made a quality dishwasher detergent that I feel safe using on my family's dishes and cleans them like leading brands. They are convenient pods which are my favorite. And they don't leave gross residue on your fingers like others do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Very happy with the way my dishes came out. I didn't clean them before putting them in the dishwasher and they came out perfectly clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly clean! This really is an amazing product! The packaging was visually appealing and conveniently closes. The scent was just right, not too weak and not too strong. My dishes were cleaned effectively with no streaking or spotting. I would highly recommend this product. I received this product free to test, however, the opinions are honest and 100% my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product I received this product a little over a month ago to review, and I must say that I am pleased with it. It has a lovely scent, and it works well with cleaning my dishes. My significant other was skeptical because he has his favorite brand, but after testing it out, he has converted. Thank you for the free sample. I will be using this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just great. I got this to review about a month ago. And I've really tested it out. Baked lasagna: check. Burned scrambled eggs: no problem. Milk fill on bottles: squeaky clean. It's a great product that will be the only dish pods I will buy because they're earth conscious and actually work with HE dishwasher.
