Washing the dishes after a meal may not be your favorite household chore, but it doesn’t need to be wholly unpleasant. Natural dishwashing detergent can make the task of achieving an empty sink easy and eco-friendly. The ingredients of greener dishwashing detergents are better at removing dried food particles and caked-on grease, and you will require less soap to restore your pots and pans to their pre-dinner sheen. Pure and Gentle’s concentrated detergent for washing machines only requires one teaspoon per load, making it a great choice for those who want an efficient cleaning product that doesn’t need to be purchased frequently.
In addition to our machine formulas, we also provide an effective plant-derived dishwashing detergent for homes without an electric dishwasher. This liquid is hypoallergenic and formulated to be easy on your hands, containing no dyes, phosphates, or bleaches that irritate sensitive skin. With a sink full of natural dishwashing detergent and warm water, your dishes be clean in no time and your hands won’t be painful and dry. And because it’s plant-derived, it’s a good choice for cleaning the dishes while being eco-friendly to the water supply, because plant-derived materials are much gentler for the environment than their chemical counterparts.
For a greener home, be sure to monitor your water use as you get the dishes done. The best method is to fill one side of the sink with suds and make a pile of cleaned dishes on the other side. When it comes time to rinse, do it all at once instead of piece by piece to reduce the amount of time the tap is on. Hot water is best for washing, and lukewarm is good for rinsing. With this method and a bottle of Pure and Gentle’s eco-friendly dishwashing detergent, you will be ready to tackle whatever load of dishes the day brings your way.
