I’ll be the first to tell you that I love dishwashing detergent that comes in tablet form. I think you know what I’m talking about: individual packets that you just pop into the detergent section. It’s mess-free and usually works REALLY well.
I have never found an eco-friendly version of this type of detergent. That is, until now! For the past few weeks, we have been using the Ecover Zero automatic dishwasher tablets, and we’ve been really impressed! These tablets clean just as well as the tablet product I used before (Finish) and they also come with zero guilt! I didn’t feel good about using products that contained harsh chemicals, but I also really struggled to find eco-friendly detergents that actually worked well (the only one I had found prior to this post had to be ordered online and was pricey enough to keep me from placing another order).
So I’m really happy to see that Ecover’s tablet works really well, and I will definitely be buying it again. I also use Ecover’s stain gel in my laundry room, and since I’ve had good luck now with 2 of their products, I’ll be buying more things in their product line. I love that their products are perfume free and don’t contain any artificial fragrances. Everything is also biodegradable, and phosphate free.
I thought they were a relatively new company, but they’ve actually been around as long as me (since 1980!). I always love when a company like this has been around since before being green was the popular thing to do!
Ecover Zero automatic dishwasher tablets are currently on sale at Alice.com for a competitive $8.52 (that’s 26 loads, so roughly a month of dishes around my house). You can also look for your nearest local retailer here.
