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!
