Bright Green Dishwasher Detergent

Safeway's brand of environmentally-friendly automatic dishwasher gel

< read all 2 reviews

I want to go green, but not with this product!

I'm trying. I really am. I use environmentally-friendly kitchen counter cleaner (who knows what bacteria are now thriving there), eco toilet-bowl cleaner (hmmm) and naturally derived laundry detergent (we'll see how long I can hold out on this one), but I have given up on eco-friendly dishwashing gel.

This is my second or third try using a "green" dishwashing gel. This time I went for Bright Green (a Safeway brand) -- it sounded good! Now my white plates are tinged with brown spots and I am afraid that it is perhaps baked on from the heat of the dishwasher. My glasses are crusted with black flecks and my knives are dulled with a layer of who-knows-what.

There's not much more to say, except that I will be heading to the store today to get me some good old Cascade. I'm not happy washing my plates with chemicals either, so if someone can recommend a brand that works, I am willing to give green another go.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

Yeah, I would try Seventh Generation products as well. Kudos to you for looking into using products with less chemicals around the home.

Have you tried the Seventh Generation products? Their dishsoap works well, but I haven't tried the dishwasher version yet. Good luck!

I tried the powder version of the Bright Green and it works great. Cascade changed the powder formula and it's just awful, makes your plastics all white and it stinks. This is unscented and my dishes actually sparkle.
