I'm using a coconut-derived one, but it doesn't clean the dishes very well. Does anyone have a good recipe or suggestion for a more natural-ish soap for the dishwasher? Thanks!
At the moment I'm using Palmolive Eco. I'm sure I could do better, but I needed something quick and this was the best of the selection I had in front of me at the time.
But if you want to try out Meyers Clean Day (I heart the basil scent of their soaps and dryer sheets) there is a $1 Off coupon here: http://www.mrsmeyers.com/coupon and if you want to try out Seventh Generation, there is a $0.50 Off coupon here: http://www.seventhgeneration.com/
Get a better dishwasher. It's been my experience that the quality of the dishwasher has more to do with cleaning the dishes than soap. When the phosphates were removed from our favorite brand, our dishwasher quit cleaning the dishes. About a month later, the dishwasher broke and my wife wanted the super duper ultra deluxe model. We bought it and the dishes were sparkling with less than half the amount of the crappy soap.
What's your brand/recipe - I'll mix some up and wash a load and see how it works.
