For the last two weeks I have been using The Honest Company’s Rinse Aid in my dishwasher. This is a reasonably priced product ($5.95) in the Honest Company line of offerings, and it is said that one bottle will provide product for roughly 75 loads of dishes. I found that filling my rinse aid dispenser in my dishwasher took about 1/3 of the entire product, but I have run about 20 loads of dishes since that time and will probably need to refill it after about 5 more loads. So I think the estimate provided is a pretty good one! This makes the per load cost around 8 cents.
Why Choose Honest Rinse Aid Over Jet-Dry?
Well, for me it is a simple choice: The Environmental Working Group has given Jet-Dry an F rating for its use of toxic chemicals. Honest Rinse Aid gets a C. Is a C awesome? No, but it is a significant improvement. Does Honest Rinse Aid work as well as Jet-Dry? No, it doesn’t. But it does help remove spots and streaks and that hazy gray film you might find on your dishes. And the difference between how well it performs versus how well Jet-Dry performs isn’t enough to make me want to go back to Jet-Dry, especially in light of how horrible Jet-Dry is for the environment.
How to Purchase Honest Rinse Aid (and How NOT To Purchase It)
Honest Rinse Aid is only $5.95. If you order the Honest essentials bundles every month, don’t include this as one of your 5 main items, as the per item cost for those equals $7.20. You’ll be over-paying for the item if you do this! Instead, add it as a +3 item that you are allowed to purchase for a 25% discount. That will bring the price down to $4.45 and make your per load expense just 6 cents! :-).
