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.

  1. Nature Clean products are a big favourite of mine.

    I am especially enamoured of their Non Clorine bleach made of Hydrogen Peroxide!!!

    Thanks for the review, will you consider doing some organic shampoos next?

  3. This sounds very good, Geraldine.
    I will look for this, I tried one or two green dish soaps as well, and tend to go back to Sunlight, which I like.
    However a good green dish soap would be worthwhile I know.

  4. This is a superior dishsoap. It takes some getting use to, re: the lack of suds but it cleans really well and that's what matters. Grease cutting is so important and this product works well in that respect too.

  5. Hi Muddy Boots, LOVE your blog name and your blog! Yes, I have a lot of reviews in the works right now, including one for a very good shampoo and conditioner brand that I recently tried. Stay tuned!

    Hi Sandy, I'm sure you'll be able to find this brand, if not locally it's available online via the Nature Clean site. And very reasonably priced too, as I've mentioned above.

    Hi Brenda, Green is the only way to go I think if at all possible. I'm so glad to have found Nature Clean dishsoap. One less thing to worry about and the ingredients in mainstream brands are a concern to me. I feel a lot better about using this one.

    Hi Joe, It is a bit different, not having a lot of suds but the cleaning power is definitely there and that's what counts. I agree.

    Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment. And thanks for the visitors from the Nature Clean Facebook page. Nice to note your visits here too!

    Happy Weekend, G :<)

  7. Geraldine, looks like a great product!
    Have not tried it but will.

    Thank you for sharing that beautiful poem with me at my blog last week.
    I loved it and needed it too as been having a bit of a hard time lately.

    Hugs

  8. I will be on the lookout for this. I have used organic soaps that just don't hold up, so I end up going through gallons.

  9. Hi Rumpy, On the Nature Clean site they have an extensive listing of stores in the US and Canada that sell their products. And it is available online too. Very reasonably priced for a green product as well, some of them can be a bit pricey compared to standard brands. For around 6. for a litre bottle, this is a bargain! I love this dishsoap for so many reasons.

    Hi Margie, Let me know if you do try this dishsoap. And I'm SO glad my poem and comment helped to brighten your day! That makes me happy. Thanks for mentioning that too. Take care friend.

    Hi SandyC, I know of what you speak. I've tried a lot of no-go green cleaners. This is not the case with Nature Clean. I think it cleans better than the mainstream brands. The other good things about this product which I've outlined above just make it that much better. Give it a try Sandy, you won't be sorry.

    Happy Week and thanks so much for your comments, G :<)

  11. These products are made from genetically modified
    corn. There is nothing natural or non-toxic about GMOs.

  12. Hi Lorraine, I do too but it's always nice to have a good dishsoap to use when the job must be done!

    Hi Robert, I can't comment on what you've said as I don't know bu I have asked the folks at Live Clean to respond to your comment here. Hopefully they will soon.

    Happy Week, G

  13. Hi again Robert and all readers of this review.

    I did get an email reply from the company that makes this dishwashing liquid. Here's what they shared about their ingredients and use of corn in this product:

    "Only a very small amount(minute %) of corn starch is utilized in our formulas – it’s part of our ingredient Fatty Polyglycoside. The actual amount of corn that goes into the product is negligible. Unfortunately (to our knowledge) the corn supply in North America is not separated into GMO and non GMO since non GMO’s corn is most profitable or costly and as such destined for the food industry. So our ingredient suppliers have no choice but to purchase what’s available. Hopefully soon we’ll be able to purchase from a 100% certified non gmo supply.

    GMO grains were created for food industry so it is highly unlikely test weren’t conducted on their non toxicity."


    I hope this is helpful. I don't like the idea of GMO's in any products either but at least in this case, there is some explanation as to the "why".

    You could also contact the company directly via their website if you would like to comment on this issue further.

    Geraldine
