    I am so very happy with this detergent. Everything comes out clean and sparkling.

  2. Kendra B (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! Absolutely no residue on my dishes, and I can feel good about eating off of my dishes again. I’ve never washed my little’s dishes in the DW before because of the residue from the traditional cleaners, but now I finally feel comfortable with that as well. Thank you Earthley for giving us clean and FUNCTIONAL products!!

  3. Alyssa Corpstein

    The detergent smells great. Easy to use. BUT I basically have to hand wash my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher to use this detergent. Which begs the question as to why I am putting them in the dishwasher anyway? I love earthley and will continue to use all of their other products. But for my dishwasher, this didn’t work for us. I have a cheaper fridgedaire dishwasher from 2017. If we upgrade our dishwasher in the future, I would be happy to give this detergent another go. But unfortunately this product just doesn’t work for us right now.

    Does not get dishes clean. Leaves a cloudy film on everything also

  5. Natalie (verified owner)

    Ah, I want to love it, but it just doesn’t clean well enough. When I open my dishwasher in the morning, I smell food, not a fresh clean scent, and more heavily-soiled dishes have to be rewashed. I’ll try using two tbsp to get through the bag, but that’s too expensive to keep buying. I love all my other Earthley products, though!

  6. Marina Sethna (verified owner)

    absolutely terrible 🙁 dishes did not clean at all and I had to rewash them with other detergent every single time.

  7. Melissa (verified owner)

    I love the dishwasher detergent. It is hard to find a good, clean product for the
    dishwasher. The detergent has done a great job at cleaning the dishes and I feel good with the ingredients.

    I was so excited Earthley started a home care line, but unfortunately this particular product in the line doesn’t work for me as well as it has for others. I have to make sure my dishes are completely rinsed beforehand and free of any kind of caked-on particles (which is sometimes difficult when you’re a busy mom) in order for it to work 100%, otherwise there’s usually sand-sized food particles left on some pieces and sometimes a film left behind it on my white plates/bowls, and I’m left having to hand wash several things. I LOVE the smell and ingredients, but it’s just not working for me, and I’ve been using it for a few months now. I also fill the rinse aide compartment with vinegar as suggested too.

  9. Marilyn (verified owner)

    This one did not work for me, it did not get my dishes clean at all so I don’t know if it’s the hard water or what but I tried it even with few dishes so it’s not an overloaded problem but I was disappointed in this one

  10. Cindy (verified owner)

    I bought this for my daughter who lives in town with city water. She washed a load of dishes twice and they were not clean. We are disappointed because switching to clean ingredients is our goal, but clean dishes are too.

  11. Kristina M Miller (verified owner)

    I wanted to love this because I love all the other home care cleaning products but I don’t think this works as well as my ecover tablets. We do have an older dishwasher so that might contribute to it not being efficient. I tried vinegar in the rinse aid compartment but didn’t notice a difference. Some of the dishes were just a bit dirty with a film. We are getting a new dishwasher soon so I will try this again. I do love the smell though!

  12. Savannah Sanders (verified owner)

    I wanted to love this and was so excited about it, but after several uses I have noticed it starts to leave a residue on my dishes. It also starts to clog the filter in the bottom of my dishwasher. When I got it out to clean it it felt very greasy. I cleaned the filter really well and tried the detergent again, but my dishes still had the filmy residue and the filter was clogged again after a few uses.

    I was previously using a different “clean” brand of dishwasher tabs and liquid. I got tired of all of the soap scum left on my dishes and decided to try this one. Let me tell you, we are obsessed! Our dishes have never felt cleaner. We’ve been using it for about 2 months now and will never go back!

  14. Rebekah

    Now you definitely have to rinse your dishes off before and not have a huge load but I loved using this on more regular loads where me and my husband rinsed the dishes.

  15. Justine Garland

    I wanted to like this so badly. I am always looking for safe dish detergent and doesn’t leave a gross chemical taste/scent. This one didn’t leave anything nasty behind, but didn’t do cleaning very well. I used it with vinegar (I always use vinegar with my loads), and usually wash food off the dishes beforehand anyway. But unfortunately it just didn’t impress me. Still on the hunt.

  16. Jessica

    Love, love, love the smell of the detergent. It works really well and I love that I don’t have to worry if it spills on my counter top, and I don’t have to worry about what chemicals are on our dishes!

  17. Denise WOZNIAK (verified owner)

    Love that this product cleans so well and is pure and clean! No toxins in our house! The bag lasts a long time. Smiling, as my dishwasher is running right now and happy to have clean, safe dishes!

  18. Sharon Arnold (verified owner)

    I haven’t quite decided if I like this product yet. It clumps very easily. I got this oily feeling on my dishes after using this product.

  19. Nicole (verified owner)

    I LOVE this detergent! My husband and I just got a dishwasher for the first time in our adult lives (10+ years of hand wash only!) and the person who sold us the dishwasher gave us the detergent they had been using. It was awful! The dishes had spots and grimy residue all over them and the chemical smell was terrible and concerning, especially since I have three children 5 and younger. Then I found Earthley dishwasher detergent and now our dishes are sparkling clean with a pleasant, all-natural scent. I also love that the detergent comes as a powder and is packaged in a brown bag with its own perfect-sized scoop included! Thank you Earthley for the gift of a home product that I can feel confident about in terms of both effectiveness and safety for my whole family!

    I didn’t love this one. But it was ok, I feel like my other clean dishwasher detergents work slightly better.
