Why You’ll Love Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder - Free and Clear

Living healthy is made up of many different lifestyle factors, and while it’s key to pay attention to things like diet and exercise, it’s also important to be aware of what products you use to keep your home clean. Dishes in particular could be worth taking a closer look at, and Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder is designed to keep dishes looking and smelling clean without the use of any harsh chemicals.

Why the right cleaning products matter

It’s easy to buy those pre-made dishwasher tabs, but the fact is that Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder can be a preferable option because of its natural cleaning ingredients and the little impact it leaves on the environment.

While healthy eating habits may help reduce the amount of toxins that find their way into the body, what about the dishes that food comes in contact with? Conventional dishwashing detergent is often made with a wide range of chemicals from chlorine to phosphates, but with Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder you can be assured your soap is made with no harsh chemicals, just natural cleaning agents.

Another key reason to switch to a natural detergent like Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder is because of the little impact it has on the environment. Synthetic fragrances, bleaches, phosphates, and other ingredients in traditional cleaners are flushed into a septic system or sewer system during the drain cycle in the dishwasher. From there, they can leach into the local water systems. But when you use Seventh Generation’s natural (but effective) dishwashing detergent, you can be assured it’s not hurting the environment.

The Seventh Generation belief

Seventh Generation believes that a brighter and more sustainable future goes beyond just recycling cans and bottles, and that protecting the health of people goes well beyond just eating organic and non-GMO. The household products that we use every day also have an impact on your body and the environment. Being aware of the items you use, and opting for more natural choices can help pave the way for a better world.

Why Seventh Generation is a great choice

Going natural can be an easy choice, especially when you choose effective products that really work, such as Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent. Here are some reasons to consider it:

  • Biodegradable: Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder uses a formula that is biodegradable. Once it enters the sewer system, it won’t leach into water or ground and harm the environment.

  • Chlorine-free: The chlorine-free formula is easy on the skin and also won’t harm dishes, pipes, or the environment.

  • Cruelty-free: All ingredients used in the creation of Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder are entirely cruelty-free and not tested on animals.

  • All-natural: No artificial dyes, colors, or scents are used in this powder. Instead, natural salts, citric acids, and even coconut-based surfacing agents are used to create a safe and effective way to clean dishes.

Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Detergent Powder is just one component in an eco-friendly kitchen. Choosing other like-minded products can have an even bigger impact on the way that the home is cleaned, as well as on the environment. Luckily, Seventh Generation has numerous natural products that can help.

Love that it's made in USA and not just a box of chemicals. I wish the box was bigger though.

- SB

Will buy again.

Clean and natural. I have really hard water so I still need the rinse aid too.

- Shelly

Swear by this!

I know I like to clean things...but I truly do swear by this dish soap! Seventh Generation has proven themselves again for me! I do dishes 2 to 3 times a day and I only need to order a box of this every 3 months or so. Can't say the same for other brands. I also really enjoy the light smell. I sadly ran out recently, I knew we would be moving and didn't plan accordingly and the one we're using now does not suit for me!

- Colleen


It works very well, and is reasonably priced.

- Heather

no scratches

Tried this dish washer detergent and love how clean the dishes, glasses, and flatware become. We used to use a different brand of dish washer detergent, but it scratched the glasses and pitted the flat wear. No harmful chemicals; excellent product!

- Nancy

Excellent product if you are chemically sensitive to fragrances

I was to the point where I couldn't use most dish washer detergents due to the smell they produce while the washer was doing its thing. But, I have no issues with fragrance or chemical odors (chlorine, in particular) from this. It cleans well and since it doesn't have bleach, you can also use it if you use sterling silver or fine china and run those through your dishwasher.

- Willie

Tiny box!

I love this detergent, but this is NOT a good price. I can get the large box for a more affordable price per ounce. I was really surprised and disappointed at how small this was for the price.

- Amanda

Works very well!

I've been through a variety of automatic detergents now, and find this one to be the best. Others have left chalky residue, a film, or even food debris on the dishes, but not this one. It has left the dishes clean and sparkling, just like the label says.

- Penelope

Works Perfectly

I didn't have good luck with the pellets of this or other brands but the granular version works great. Clean dishes every time.

- Laura

Great product!

I've been using this powder dishwasher detergent for a couple years now and really love it! It works better than the less environmentally friendly kind i used to have which left a film on the dishes.

- Angela

Good detergent

I have very hard water so it's hard to find a safer dishwasher detergent that really works. So far I've had great luck with this! :)

- Jessica

New Favorite Detergent

Cleans every dish in my old dishwasher and doesn't leave any residue. The scent is pleasant and makes me feel safe that I'm using such a good quality product.

- Anna

Cleans like it should

Seventh Generation's powder detergents have never let me down. They clean every time, and I never have to re-clean my dishes. So happy with this stuff!

- Felicia

Best natural detergent powder!

I have tried many detergent powders from national brands to locally made brands. I always thought that the chemicals were needed to make the dishes clean, until I discovered Seven Generations. This is the best powders I have tried, and I am sticking with this brand! I wished Thrive would sell the bigger version of this detergent to reduce the amount of packaging.

- Vivian

Does the job, naturally

A perfectly good dishwasher soap with great values. Biodegradable, non-toxic, and no compromise on quality.

- Margaret

Works great

Love this stuff. Just wish I could get a larger size.

- Lesley

No film

Incredible price. I love this because it works for my spouse's allergies without leaving the film on the dishes like so many natural cleaners.

- Susannah

Hate Washing By Hand

I hate washing by hand. I also hate harming the environment when it isn't necessary. This dishwashing detergent powder is great on both fronts. I don't have to wash by hand it gets even the worst pans clean.
I love that it is great on the environment and chlorine and harmful chemical free so I can really feel good about using it. I also like it is scent free-some detergents are just vulgar smelling and I can't take it, so scentless is a great improvement on that!

- Scott H.

Gets The Dishes Clean

I really like this dishwasher detergent powder. It doesn't get stuck to the dishes or the dishwasher and rinses off right every time. I like that it is from Seventh Generation and scent free and also chlorine free. I feel good about using a product that is so consciencious of the environment.
Something I like even more is how much I save on this product buying it from Thrive! I was spending over $7 in store (it's hard to find here) and now I can order it for under $5. That is just great! I love being able to save a few dollars when I am able to!

- Star D.

Cleans Off Most Pans

This stuff is great for my dishes. I really, really abhor the idea of doing dishes by hand, so everything that can possibly go into the dishwasher ends up in there. This detergent makes me feel better about the detergent I'm using in my dishwasher. I've had some issues with it not cleaning off tough-to-remove stains like things baked onto pans, but aside from that, it's done a pretty amazing job on everything I've given it. I've learned to recognize what it will and won't clean and to pre-clean things accordingly. Love that it's environmentally-friendly.

- Jamie M.

Does a nice job

I never thought much about a natural dishwashing detergent until I started reading the label on the one I used to buy.

It was horrifying, dyes, perfumes, chemicals that could be harmful. So I switched to this natural, plant-based cleaner, and I love it. No heavy scent, no chemicals, and it does a good job on even burnt-in stains. Never going back.

- Reesa

No additives or chemicals

This is pure naturally sourced detergent. It has no artificial scent or perfumes, no dyes and no toxins.

It cleans as well if not better than the Tide pacs I use to use, without harming my dishwasher's pipes or the environment.
