Nature Clean Dishwashing Liquid
I've been searching for a really good "green" dishwashing liquid for a long time. I was so pleased to recently find and try-out Nature Clean dishwashing liquid. This one's a keeper!
I'm kind of fussy when it comes to dishsoap. There are a lot of things that I look for in a good product for washing dishes. Nature Clean Dishwashing Liquid delivers in so many ways.
First of all, there's the "grease-cutting" factor. Nature Clean gets the job done, no problem! That's been an issue with some of the other "green" dishsoaps I've tried in the past. And if it doesn't cut the grease and really leaves dishes clean, being "green" doesn't make up for this.
Next, the scent. Or should I say, lack of scent. I'm using the Unscented Nature Clean Dishwashing Liquid right now and it has absolutely no scent. I like that a lot! As I mentioned in this review of another leading green dishsoap, this is one of the ways that so many products fall short. Heavy scents that linger even after the dishes are thoroughly rinsed. Who wants to taste/smell dishsoap on dishes and glasses when they are trying to enjoy supper? Not me!
This product does not suds as much as some of the more mainstream brands and that is explained in this information from the Nature Clean website:
Our Dishwashing Liquids are formulated with essential oils, NOT synthetic fragrances and many fragrances contain phthalates (mainly used to soften plastics). The oils we choose have both antiseptic and aromatherapeutic properties. About 95% of the chemicals used in traditional fragrances are synthetic which can lead to headaches, wheezing and skin irritation.
Our dish liquids also won't create as many suds as a synthetic dish liquid but that's because we avoid using the sudsing agent called Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). This ingredient is a suspected carcinogen (cancer causing agent) and no amount of suds is worth that.
We also formulate without ingredients such as formaldehyde based preservatives like parabens (suspected carcinogens), phosphates, chlorine, or dyes. All this makes our Dishwashing Liquids safe enough for even the youngest member of your kitchen clean up crew!
For people who do prefer scented dishwashing liquid, Nature Clean is also available in: Lavender & Tea Tree and Mandarin & Grapefruit. These sound rather nice. But I'm sticking with the Unscented. It so pleasant to find a good dishwashing liquid that is truly scent-free!
95% Natural source ingredients. Biodegradable, Non-Toxic, Hypoallergenic. Not tested on animals.
Price is very competitive too. The large 1 L. size bottle sells for around $6. Available at retailers across Canada and US. These are listed at the companies website.
Do stop by the Nature Clean site to check out all their products. An impressive range of laundry detergents, household cleaners, dishcare, stain removers and personal care. I'm looking forward to trying more of their products in the near future.
Overall rating for this product: Excellent. 5 out of 5.
