Reviews For Lemongrass Automatic Dishwasher Liquid Detergent
Based on 13 Reviews
Nice smell, terrible dishwashing, environmentally great.
I love the smell, like another reviewer said too! But, even though I generally have a high level of environmental consciousness, using the right stuff for laundry, recycling everything, creating compost, the list goes on, the dishwashing ability of this product took a Bosch dishwasher and made it useless. Meaning I had to scrub his scrub nearly everything after they came out of the dishwasher.
This well-meaning product left every dish looking as if it had smudge and even crud all over it. Imagine taking clean glasses and looking at them after they're done and wondering if you shouldn't have scrubbed them before they went into the dishwasher! And I don't think I'm being excessively anal about this! I never really thought about it that much other than to look for grit left on dishes in previous dishwashers.
But what I saw, when removing dishes from the dishwasher is, was truly disheartening. I even tried rinsing thoroughly the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher! And I give them the entire bottle a chance over and over and over again, and all that happens is that the dishes just get worse.
Now I'm comparing this with the not environmentally correct, Cascade Complete, which did a fantastic job of cleaning dishes. And made having a Bosch dishwasher worthwhile. I have not tried any other environmentally sensitive brand, so I don't have any comparison basis across environmental choices. I don't know how the stacks up to other brands like Ecover and so on.
If it weren't for the environmental benefits, it would've gotten less than two stars if any. Good try! We obviously have much work to do!

Does not work
I am all for being natural and chemical free. The only thing about this that is any good is the smell. It has a nice lemony scent. It does NOT clean dishes very well. I have rewashed many thing after using this.
Does not clean
Very dissatisfied. Only pro was the scent. Had to re wash every load even when run on "heavy" setting. If you don't want to pre-wash AND rewash this product is not for you. Back to Ecover tabs I go or maybe try Seventh Generation. Bummer
Smells Good But Does Not Clean Well
I love the smell emanating from the dishwasher while it is on. Unfortunately, the product is not effective in cleaning, even when dishes were pre-rinsed or pre-soaked. The silverwares were dull and had left over oil streak. I do not recommend.
Es muy bueno

Residue left on dishes
This dish detergent really doesn't clean as well as I hoped it would. I end up hand washing quite a few dishes after the dishwasher cycle has ended.
I was using the standard dishwashing detergent until I noticed my dishes and cups smelled/ tasted like soap. I decided to switch and definitely noticed a huge difference. Like other reviews, you must pre wash before putting dishes in the washer and I noticed that their is a slight residue on my drinking cups afterward.
Pretty good if you pre-wash
Works well if you rinse/pre-wash your dishes. Smells fresh and clean. Not great for caked on food or tough grease.
Great smell in kitchen when done
Stick with Seventh Generation
I've had to re-wash several loads of dishes with this detergent. Using the Seventh Generation detergent, I could not rinse plates before putting them in the dishwasher and they would still come out spotless.
Smells and works great!
I wanted to love this dishwasher detergent, but it just didn't do the job enough. I still had gunk stuck on my bowls and I rinsed them out before I put them in. On to the next one :-(
i love it,
