I handwash and have hard water (lots of trace chemicals) that normally reduces the 'normal' amount of bubbles a soap will produce. Earth Choice ends up so bubbly. Too bubbly. I have to rinse so much to get them off, then I have to rinse the sink twice to get it bubble free or leave it and end up with dried soap scum in my sink. Using less soap to get less bubbles can leave me with grease streaks when dealing with animal fats, meaning I have to wash them again. Price is great but using that much water to rinse and re-wash is not so earth friendly.
So good & cheap
This dishwashing liquid is so cheap and effective! I've been using it for 6 months and will never go back to more expensive brands. My dishes are clean and spotless after drying.
We don't have a dishwasher and have to do all all cleaning manually. This dishwashing liquid is such a bliss. I generally fill one side of my wash basin with water and pour half a spoon to one spoon of this liquid and immerse my dishes and wash in it. This has helped me getting out even the greasiest of stains( they might take a bit extra liquid to wash though). Washes the not too greasy dishes comfortably and fast.
I have been using this one for years and I really like it
We tried this a few years back, not for environmental reasons unfortunately, so I can't comment on that too much. Nope. It was because it was cheap. And we thought it was a pretty good dishwashing liquid. It has a nice fragrant smell, is a great size for the price, and is nice and viscous, not too runny or anything. It degreases well, too. We were quite happy with it, and have been using it consistently for years.
Then one day we ran out, and we grabbed a cheaper brand dishwashing liquid at the corner store, just to tide us over til the next grocery shop. It was then we realized what we were truly missing-- the other brand had a hideous artificial smell (I know this has artificial scent in it too, but it's at least pleasant) of 'fake lemon' and it was runny and didn't produce suds at all. It was frankly, terrible. We thought, maybe it was because it was a 'cheap' brand that it was bad? So we tried a premium name brand, just to test it. That wasn't as good as this either. That one was very harsh and sudsy, but mostly, it didn't really last. Again, it had a fake lemon scent that was noticeable, and the unnatural color was off putting too. I much preferred this one, and at least it had some environmental benefit.
This isn't perfect; it you probably need to use a bit more for truly greasy pots and pans, and I think the 'earth' benefits to the environment are probably really minor, but I personally think it's the best value for money dish soap you can get, and will continue to use it.
had to find a dishwasher detergent that wouldn't kill the worms in our septic system - Earth Choice is almost perfect - have not had any problems with my septic system at all - all I need to do now is find washing machine soap which is as good!!!!!!
