    I wanted to love this product. I gave it about a month of trying. I used vinegar in the rinse aid and that didn’t help. It left foggy film all over everything and I always had to re-wash the dishes by hand. We do have hard water so I believe that to definitely be a factor.

    This product didn’t work for me. I followed all of the instructions given by Earthley and even used the chat feature to ask if there was anything else I could do to see if I could be successful with it. They suggested maybe the quality of water in my home prevented the detergent from working correctly. My dishes were left with a very thin film that would just not go away. I washed 1 load of dishes 3 times trying to get them clean with no luck. Why then did you give it 5 stars you might ask? Because Earthley is an amazing company who stands by their products 100%. A simple chat with someone on the site and a refund was back in my account by 5 that very same day. It is risk free to try this product. I very highly recommend trying it, this would be so much better for your family than cascade!

    I’m very happy with this detergent… and the lemon-thyme smells amazing. We have a septic system, so I wanted products that were safe and this works beautifully.

  4. Kathy Hughes (verified owner)

    I was skeptical about this but it works great! My dishes AND dishwasher are shiny and clean! And it smells fresh, too!

  5. Kris Jack (verified owner)

    Leave white residue on my dishes. I’ve tried only using half a scoop and that has helped some. Other than that, love that it has clean ingredients!

  6. Serena

    This detergent is great! My house has hard water so i use half a Tb for my dishwasher and my dishes come out looking great! I use a white vinegar rinse aid and it’s great. I still get buildup quite regularly in my dishwasher but I think it’s due more to the hard water than the soap.

  7. Loretta A Underwood (verified owner)

    This detergent works great! I love the scent. Leaves the dishes clean and sparkly. Will definitely buy again.

  8. Lauren (verified owner)

    Wanted to live this but it didn’t work well. Left residue and bad stains and never fully cleaned at times. Tried different ways in hope it would fully dissolve, but didn’t. Otherwise loved the option.

  9. Rebecca Sharp (verified owner)

    I really like this dishwasher detergent. We have really hard water in our area and so far I haven’t seen any film building up on the dishes. It does a great job of cleaning the dishes and cuts through grease and grime. I went with the lemon thyme scent and next time I will go with unscented. I like the smell on its own, but when I open my dishwasher after it has run, the smell is just too strong combined with the heat and I personally don’t like it. I also feel some of the dishes smell like it – but nothing like they did when I used Finish tablets in the past. A great natural option and we will continue using it for sure!

    I have used about half of the bag so far. I haven’t had any film residue, or left over detergent anywhere. My dishes seem to be mostly clean. Some tough stuff I still need to scrub before putting in dishwasher. (Greasy/oily sauce/dressing.) Now I just need to figure out the rinse aid properly because my dishes seem to never fully dry. Vinegar doesn’t seem to fully help. Perhaps a rinse aid product in the future as well?

  11. Joanna N. (verified owner)

    I was excited to try this product! Unfortunately, it hasn’t cleaned flawlessly and we even have soft water. However, I’m suspicious our dishwasher needs some attention, so I’m excited to try it down the road to see if we get better results.

  12. Jessica Crosson (verified owner)

    I am very disappointed to report that I do not plan to reorder this product. The only way I can be sure it’s going to work in my washer is to run the hottest load, for the longest time. Otherwise, my dishes have been coming out with a slight film build up or slightly still greasy. I was really hoping to love it, but I just don’t.

  13. Lily (verified owner)

    I am blown away by Earthley Dishwashing detergent! My dishes come out sparkling clean, something that hasn’t been happening with other ‘clean’ detergents. The lemon smell is a huge plus as well! Don’t hesitate to give this a try if you haven’t yet.

  14. Lauren Flatter (verified owner)

    I wanted to like this product as I LOVE all other Earthley products but this was a miss for me.I am giving it 4 stars because I also wonder if my dishwasher isn’t the issue because the product smells great and there were times it worked fine for my dishes.Overall though it didn’t work the best and I found myself re washing my dishes by hand.

  15. Kerry (verified owner)

    This dishwasher detergent did not work for me. My white dishes had a brown residue and the glasses were cloudy. I did try the vinegar rinse. I gave it to my mom and it works for her, so maybe it’s just my dishwasher or water…Either way, I love the smell!

  16. Chantal McDougal (verified owner)

    Overall I am happy with the dishwashing detergent and would buy again. However, for some reason mine seems to chunk up and I have to break it up often. Which to me isn’t a big deal because I know the ingredients are truly natural. It cleans great and I love the smell!

  17. Melissa King (verified owner)

    This product works amazingly well even though we have well water! I used vinegar as a rinse aid as the package said, and all dishes are sparkling clean! Clean non-toxic products are all I will use, but they don’t always work well. Earthley’s dishwasher detergent is safe and does a fantastic job! Happy to find this company!

  18. Allison Garman (verified owner)

    Highly impressed! Works well with hard water.

  19. Reatha McClure (verified owner)

    I’ve tried my share of natural dishwasher detergent. I was actually shocked at how well this worked. And my dishwasher stays so much cleaner. I used to get a weird buildup in it but since I’ve started this I no longer have to clean my dishwasher every couple weeks! Huzzah!! Plus it smells lovely, bonus!

  20. emilysarah87 (verified owner)

    This natural detergent works pretty well when combined with a white vinegar wash but does not do as well with stuck on food as the commercial brands, but they also have chemicals that this one does not. Overall it works well and I would recommend it.
