    Works great and love the smell! It cleans well and didn’t notice residue or food stuck on dishes after using.

    Bought the unscented version and have been using it for a few months now with the recommend vinegar rinse. My dishes come out just as clean as before, but much shinier because of the vinegar rinse. My dishes had been getting tiny scratches on them because of how caustic the old soap I was using was, but not with this new detergent! It even seems to be cleaning my machine! I use so much less soap with Earthley’s detergent, so I know one bag will last me a long time. I’m not a fan of scents, and we’re very sensitive to them, so the unscented version is perfect for our family. Won’t go back to using the old stuff ever again.

  3. Heather Sullivan (verified owner)

    I love the dishwasher detergent because my dishes are clean and I don’t have to be concerned that my children are around when the dishwasher is washing.

  4. Katie Yungen (verified owner)

    Actually works better than store brands! Plus it’s non toxic, smells wonderful, and no bulky plastic container to recycle or add to landfills! Why wouldn’t everyone use this??

  5. Nikkita (verified owner)

    I was hoping this would be my new go-to for dishwasher detergent/powder, but it just didn’t get the job done. It cleaned decently on dishes that weren’t heavily soiled, but left a residue. I also tried it along with using vinegar as the rinse-aid and there was no difference. Others may have a different experience. I do like that this is a natural and non-toxic product, as with all of Earthley’s products.

  6. Melani McArthur

    I love this detergent! Finally found something nontoxic that actually works. Smells good and cleans too! So glad there is now a home line!! Everyone that tried a sample from my stash loved it too!!

  7. Laura (verified owner)

    Worked “okay” for lightly dirty dishes, however had to rerun loads several times to make sure dishes were clean. Switching to another product.

  8. lincolnashley (verified owner)

    I do love the smell of the dishwasher detergent. I also love that the price is reasonable especially for us mama’s who are on a budget. I did have trouble with it getting hard so I am not sure what that was about. But i am definitely willing to give it another try. I am thankful for these natural alternatives for my family without having to spend MLM prices.

    Thanks Earthly!

  9. Carmen (verified owner)

    Very impressed! I haven’t used a powder detergent in a long time, but it’s very effective, affordable, and less wasteful so I dig it!

  10. Melissa Wheeler (verified owner)

    I have to admit I was skeptical of this one. Dishwasher detergent was the last of our household items to get switched out for a fragrance free, non toxic alternative.
    I was surprised and my expectations surpassed!
    That being said, dishes do need to be a little cleaner going into the dishwasher than before. The vinegar rinse aid is a must. And on occasion things do need a little extra rinse because we have hard water.

    But to not have those toxic fumes streaming from the dishwasher every time we run it is totally worth the little bit of extra effort it takes to get our dishes sparkling clean.

  11. Jill Diedrich (verified owner)

    I was skeptical of using this due to having hard well water. Powder detergent don’t often dissolve well. This dissolved completely and left the dishes very clean. I used the vinegar rinse per the instructions, and am very pleased with the results.

  12. Layla

    The smell is literally my favorite, we were using 7th generation before this and wanted a cleaner option, and this has be the best! The dishes smell fresh and clean!

  13. Kelli M (verified owner)

    We recently moved to a house with a well and hard water so my dishes were a bit more challenging to clean. I was almost going to try a conventional toxic soap, but decided to try Earthley’s detergent. So happy I found it! The scent is really nice, but not overbearing whatsoever. I get headaches from fragrances, and the scent is naturally derived and mild. My dishes are coming out clean with no residue! A few super dirty dishes have a spot of food residue, but that’s always been the case, even with toxic soap. I would recommend this product!

  14. Brenna (verified owner)

    My dishes come out so clean every time! I’m so glad I found a cleaner option to use.

  15. Joyce (verified owner)

    I returned it. It cleaned, but not the way we needed it to. It left a cloudy film on our glasses, and everything just didn’t look clean…. We have Connecticut well water; The other reviews say it worked great, so maybe it has something to do with water… I wish it worked–most everything we get from Earthley is great including their laundry detergent.

  16. Nicole Endres (verified owner)

    Love it

  17. Amanda (verified owner)

    I LOVE the fresh smell of the Earthley dishwasher detergent! I have had no residue on my dishes or the inside of my dishwasher, and my dishes consistently come out sparkling clean! I love using a clean product that really works!

  18. Rebekah (verified owner)

    I have been enjoying this powder dishwashing detergent. I’ve found that it works best when paired with vinegar in the rinse-aid compartment. I was initially disappointed that the bag was pretty small, but it really seems to last a long time because it only takes a small scoop per load. I appreciated that a scoop was included so I know how much to put in the washer. I use the unscented version. It is more expensive than the other green detergents that I use, but I love buying from a small, local business and supporting them, and I haven’t been disappointed with any of their products that I’ve tried.

  19. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    This works just as well as any dishwasher detergent, but doesn’t have the awful chemicals! I 100% recommend this product!

  20. Kellie (verified owner)

    I LOVE this!!! I always used finish before because it was the only thing that worked but I hated the chemicals. This works just as good and smells amazing when I open the dishwasher! I’m so excited to try the laundry detergent next!
