    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.

  2. Kelli (verified owner)

    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.

  11. Brooke (verified owner)

    I love it! I Have always used finish tabs in my dishwasher. I do rinse my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher but everything came out just as clean, no residue and the smell was great!

  12. Emily (verified owner)

    I wasn’t expecting a noticeable change from washing with my other detergent, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this washed better than my previous “green” detergent. Will definitely be buying this from Earthley from now on! Thank you!

  13. Shauna D

    Love this stuff! Smells amazing. My dishes were clean and sparkling when I opened the dishwasher. It also has a measured scoop for ease!

  14. Tiara B

    This dishwasher detergent works so good that it even cleaned the dishwasher itself! Because it does this, I recommend making sure your dishwasher’s filter is cleaned out before use and maybe running a cycle or two just to clean it out before use. It scrubs pans that would have taken some serious elbow grease to clean, leaving them incredibly shiny and smooth (as long as you stack it right so the water can reach it)! The dishes dry quickly and leave very little water spots, if any at all! This is a high quality product and I am super excited to get rid of the other stuff!

  15. Amber

    This detergent works great! Everything is clean, shiny, no food particles left, and no cloudy film on the dishes. It only takes one tablespoon. I rinse big crumbs and dressings off the plates, but you can still tell they are dirty when they go in the dishwasher. I’m totally impressed with how clean everything is after every load.

  16. Meghan G

    I am glad Earthley has moved into making home products! I love that this doesn’t have all the nasty ingredients most other detergents have. I see people had great luck with this detergent but I can’t say the same. For the most part my dishes came out fairly clean with the exception of a few very dirty dishes I purposely left that way to see how clean they would come out. I also noticed a film on some of my dishes. I just rinsed them off under the faucet while unloading. I think this is a product that you just have to try out and see if it works for you!

  17. Katie

    I have gone through a handful of different clean detergents. Not many work good enough to purchase again. This formula checked all the boxes though. Especially being biodegradable and clean. One thing I can’t stand is cleaning products with strong scents and leaving a film behind. This cleaned everything, no film, no scent left behind, no chucks of powder in the machine after…

  18. Amanda Maddox

    This surpassed my expectations! I was amazed how sparkling clean this left my dishes and dishwasher. Earthley’s dish washer detergent will be my new go to!

  19. Sarena Santos

    I absolutely love this product. I was using Finish previously and found it was leaving a white residue on all my dishes, which means on our white dishes we never saw it and probably consumed some disgusting toxins. I started using this and found no residue, no need for a pre-rinse and it cleans my dogs raw feeding containers flawlessly. I am so happy to finally be able to throw out the toxin-filled dish detergent!

  20. Celine

    I’m so happy that Earthley decided to make this detergent I always wanted to switch to something cleaner but could never find a product that met the standards that I wanted. This one did. It gets them clean without the worry of chemicals on my dishes. Thank you Earthley!
