    I have tried many natural dishwasher detergents and none have impressed me….until now! This stuff works so wonderful and it smells great too! My dishes come clean without the cloudiness and the residue that other detergents leave.

    I was so excited when I heard Earthley was coming out with non toxic home care line! Knowing that I can have my dishes washed without them smelling like chemicals. Ugh I can’t stand store brand dishwasher detergent for that very reason. This product takes care of the nasty chemical smell but leaves a thick white residue on the dishes. Even with a rinse aide. It also does not get the dishes clean if they have the tiniest bit of food on them. We rinse our dishes before we put them in the dishwasher but food can get missed. I’m really sad it’s not working for us because I really wanted this to work. We had to go back to store brand because at least it gets our dishes clean

    I thought it didn’t work because I was following the instructions. Did 3 washes and was so frustrated with the film on all of my dishes and how they were pretty much all still dirty. Thought it was a bust. I had the vinegar rinse and everything. BUT I decided to give it one more chance and fill up my detergent slot instead of following the instructions for only 1tbsp. I kinda thought that it might be counterproductive to add more since it was leaving a film, but thought might as well try it…. It worked!! I’ve used it for about 4 loads since then and my dishes come out sparkling clean! So I suggest doing 2 tbsp at least! I also have been doing all my loads on “Heavy”.

    Love this! Has a nice clean scent and the dishes come out clean.

  5. Clarissa Armstrong (verified owner)

    I’m surprised to see so many good reviews, but happy that others had success! I have used this twice and both times many of my dishes came out quite dirty. I really wanted to love this stuff but it just doesn’t cut it! I basically have to scrub all my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

  6. Shelby Lucas (verified owner)

    I really wanted to love this, and I love all the other cleaning products from Earthley, but this sadly did not work for me. It left a white residue on all my dishes, and didn’t fully clean all my dishes even though I hand-scrubbed before using the dishwasher. I used the high temperature setting and a vinegar rinse, which has helped others have success, but it did not work for me. We have hard water with a water softener system, so perhaps that affects it. I won’t be reordering this product, but definitely reordering all the other Earthley cleaning products.

  7. Joseph Dean (verified owner)

    I wanted to like it, and I gave it a good try. But it leaves a filmy residue on the dishes that makes them look dirty. I even tried vinegar as a rinse aid as recommended. Bummed because I usually love earthly products but this one needs work.

  8. Marina (verified owner)

    Really wanted to love it. I’m afraid most of bag is going to go to waste. It doesn’t clean our dishes at. all. Super disappointing

  9. Heather

    I have been using for nearly 2 weeks, and every load has dishes that must be rewashed, particularly silverware. Hoping for the best, but as with other natural cleaners, didn’t work.

  10. Amylee (verified owner)

    Works as well as the other dishwasher detergents we’ve used, natural or not. I do not use the suggested vinegar rinse and it’s been just fine after 3 weeks of consistent use so far. We run 1-2 loads a day, depending on how many kids are home from school. Very pleased to have a better option now.
