Description

Seventh Generation Lemon Dishwasher Detergent Gel uses plant based enzyme blends for high cleaning power while leaving out synthetic fragrances, dyes, phosphates, and chlorine bleach. This dish soap is scented with 100 percent essential oils and botanical extracts because real lemon smells good just the way it is

For more than 25 years, Seventh Generation has been thoughtfully formulating safe and effective plant based products that work. Really well. Our dishwashing detergent gel uses powerful plant based ingredients like surfactants and enzymes to break down tough residue and lift away food, leaving your dishes sparkling clean. So, how does it all work? The enzymes cut through grease and food by breaking down starch and protein based residue while the surfactants remove dirt and grease by holding the molecules in suspension, so they can wash away. Yes, even those fussy egg stains

This product does not clean adequately. Too many "clean" dishes are, in fact, NOT clean. Preferred the powder dishwasher detergent which did a better job, but unfortunately is very hard to find these days and very expensive when one can find it. Sorry, but my loyalty as a 7th Gen customer is strained and until your products get better and more available, I'm going to look elsewhere. Oh, and no I don't want coupons. Thank you. P.S. The scent is annoying and unnecessary.

Happy - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
Formula must have changed or something is wrong with the bottle we got. We’ve used this product for years with no problems and loved it. Worked well previously. BUT ever since we got a new bottle we’ve had so many white residue spots on our utensils. Every load and nothing else has changed. I know it’s not our water causing water spots, as we ran a load without any detergent and absolutely no spots then. Please go back to the old formula!!! Or here’s hoping maybe we got a lemon. Not sure I want to waste more money to try again with this product though.

BEACHGIRL - 10 months ago
I wanted very much to like this product. So much so that I bought another bottle just to make sure. But, it continualy leaves food on dishes. Items that should be easy for detergent to clean. I even rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher (something that I shouldnt have to do) yet both dishes and utensils alike remain soiled upon cycle completion. Makes me worry that they are not disinfected properly either. Sadly, this is not a mechanical issue but inferior product.

Seventh Generation is not as chemical free as it claims to be. This dish soap did not foam up well and was fairly disappointing overall. I stopped using their products and went to a different cleaner option.

We're sorry to hear you we're disappointed that our Free and Clear Dishwasher gel didn't foam as well as you expected - our products meet the highest global safety standards. All ingredients are safe to use, and all products have been through Safety and Toxicology screening. We've shared your concerns with our team.
