Cleaning Product Rave: Ecover Automatic Dishwasher Tablets

Hi!

You know you’re an adult when you get excited about dishwasher tablets, and I swear that I am not nearly as dorky as I make myself seem.

In all seriousness, the tablets or liquid that we use in our dishwashers are extremely important because, even though we aren’t ingesting the soap directly, we are indirectly coming in contact with traces of it through the food that we put on those dishes. This means that we are ingesting traces of dyes, alcohol, perfumes, chlorine, formaldehyde, and a potential host of other chemicals.

Most of those mainstream toxic products work really well, and they make our dishes squeaky clean.  On the flip side, it can be challenging to find natural brands that really do the job well.   I’ve experimented with my fair share from The Honest Company (which left a nasty film on my dishes and frankly did a very poor job of cleaning them) to Method (which is a decent alternative to toxic cleaners) to Ecover (which is what I am going to spotlight today).

The best nontoxic dishwashing agents

(Just to put it out there, this is not a sponsored post, and I am fairly certain that the folks at Ecover are completely unaware of my existence.)

I personally use the automatic dishwasher tablets (also available as a powderdish soap, and rinsing aid).  They are completely free of any fragrance (although some varieties do contain naturally derived fragrance), dyes, or chlorine. They are also biodegradable, cruelty-free and fish-friendly, and made with plant-based ingredients.

After using them for the first time, I was completely blown away!  My dishes were perfectly clean and without that nasty soapy feeling.  After working my way through some seriously bad cleaning tablets for awhile, I was pretty excited to discover these.  It doesn’t take much to make me happy.

You can purchase Ecover products on Vitacost and Amazon, but you can also do a search on the Ecover website for local retailers.   I was pretty pleased to discover that my local Earth Fare carries Ecover products.

Let me know if you’ve ever use them!

I’ll be sharing a beauty haul next week and my October favorites, so be sure to check back or subscribe.

Have a great day!

  1. Erin – have not heard of this – but it sounds great!

  2. Erin – this looks great – and even fish friendly? Will look for.

  3. Yes! I was blown away. The Honest Company one was HORRIBLE, so I didn’t have high hopes for this one. I like when I am pleasantly surprised. 🙂
