Casa Beta: Clorox Green Works Dishwashing Liquid

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. To find out more about this dishwashing liquid, get the skinny here.

I made my brother buy this for his new place when I helped him unpack by washing all his dishes and cookware. It worked great.

Ooh, I use GreenWorks in a spray bottle to clean just about everything but I didn't realize they made dishwashing detergent too. That's exciting! I love this brand, and it smells me, it smells kinda like lime jello.

Ecover is my favorite, but we usually use Seventh Generation because it is easier to find.

i really didnt like method and have used one trader joes brand which i liked and another brand i cant remember that had a great green apple scent but it was pricey. i currently use seventh generation and am pretty happy with it. good to know this is a good product, while i am a bit apprehensive about the motivation behind these products (not true caring more about making money) it cant hurt to have more green products out there.

Ooh great to know, because the thing that annoys me about Method is the lack of sudsing. I will have to try this out. Although lately I've been using Planet and pretty happy with it.
