Back in January, I had the opportunity to review Clorox's Green Works cleaning products. While many people (including myself) were initially wary of a natural cleaning line put out by Clorox, I was won over by the fact that the products were 99 percent natural, contained no harsh cleansers or artificial scents, and did the job with a minimum of fuss or expense. Further, I was impressed by the fact that the Sierra Club endorsed these products. This weekend, I tested out Green Works's latest product, its natural dishwashing liquid.
To see what I thought of this product,
In the past year, I've used a variety of dishwashing liquids, from Trader Joe's store brand to Seventh Generation to Williams-Sonoma. Basically, I'll use whatever strikes my fancy at the time. One thing that I realized I'd been missing, especially with the Seventh Generation dishwashing liquid, was the sudsing ability that Green Works has. Don't get me wrong — there are suds with the other brands I've used. There are just a lot more with Green Works. The scent was nice, too. While I can't say exactly what it is (it's listed on the bottle as "original"), there's a nice herbal odor to it, which isn't overpowering in the least. And best of all, it got my dishes clean, even the rather caked-on bits stuck to the lasagna pan. This product has a suggested retail price of $3.49, which, while more expensive than conventional dishwashing liquid, is definitely cheaper than other "natural" brands.
