Finally a natural, bio-degradable gel for machines. Only add salt if and as directed on your particular machine. You only use a large teaspoon per load so it will last a long time – about 70 washes. Of course it also means that you could hook up your dish washing to your grey water system if you have one as the waste water is safe for gardens.

The Better Earth Auto Dishwasher Gel does not require additional rinse aids / salts to keep your dishwasher clean. It contains water softening agents in the form of Sodium Citrate. This softens the water and binds to heavy metals. It also has low foaming surfactants (Decyl Glucoside) which help clean the dirt and prevents droplets forming and staining the dishwasher. If you live in an area with very hard water you can add salts but it is not necessary for most areas.

The Better Earth range is now certified by Beauty Without Cruelty.

Water (Aqua), Sodium Silicate, Glycerin, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Borate, Decyl Glucoside, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Peel Oil*, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Asphalatus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract*, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil

  • Great for a grey water friendly dishwasher soap!
    20 Mar, 2017, By Rene I am very satisfied with this product. Great smell, and cleans well. It does not work alone, though, in my machine. I add salt and vinegar (as rinse aid) to soften the water further, but we do have exceptionally hard water so I will not blame the product. :)

  • Very disappointed
    01 Mar, 2017, By Claire I was really hoping I had finally found a natural dishwasher detergent that actually worked but this leaves a residue all over my dishes and especially glasses. Ive tried different settings and nothing helps...

  • A winner!
    28 Feb, 2017, By Tandy I have been using this product for a few years and am so happy with it! Whether I use a 30 degree wash or 60 degree wash, my dishes etc. come out clean and without residual grime. 1 bottle lasts about 2,5 months, with doing a load every 1-2 days.

  • Not impress
    03 Feb, 2017, By Petro Does not disolve, leave dishes with white residue.

  • Not great :(
    02 Nov, 2016, By Debbie I don like giving bad reviews but the gel does not dissolve, even on a long, high temp wash which I only do for large loads. Dishes don always come out completely clean often have large, hardened lumps of the gel stuck to crockery. I previously used another natural product which was perfect but sadly I wouldn buy this again. :(

  • Longest lasting product ive ever seen
    29 Oct, 2016, By Caroline This product is amazing. I am careful to clean well before I load the dishwasher as I like clean dishes but this product takes a teaspoon per load and lasts me months. Ive been using it for years.

  • So disappointed....
    11 Aug, 2016, By Tracey I so wanted to love this product, but the sad reality is I feel like it was a total waste of money. I tried everything, even tripling the recommended amount you are supposed to use, but nothing worked... even on my longest, least economical wash, the dishes were dirty every time (and I painstakingly rinse everything before it goes into the dishwasher). Overall, definitely not recommended. The search continues...

  • Good Value
    03 Feb, 2016, By Tanya Very good value product. Works really well when you use vinegar as a rinse aid.

  • Think and Effective
    22 Dec, 2015, By Tiffany I am very happy with my purchase. You don have to use much at all and my dishes are squeaky clean.

  • A little tip!
    04 Aug, 2015, By Jessica Mixing this product 50-50 with pure castille soap produces a perfect mix to clean dishes every time, better than any conventional product!

  • Not great
    25 Feb, 2015, By Chantell lovely clean smell but didn get the job done.

    Dished and cutlery didn seem shining and clean.
    I had to rinse everything really well before washing and I that is too much effort for me.

    I resorted going back to commercial product.

    Will try different product next time.

  • Excellent product
    07 Aug, 2014, By Gail This product is great. You use very little of it to clean an entire dishwasher full of dishes. The earthy smell takes a bit of getting used to initially, but the product works very well.

  • Good enough
    23 Apr, 2014, By Petri Although I like the idea of using an earth friendly product, I have to admit it does not clean the dishes as well as my usual cleaner. I really battle to get my glasses to shine (our water is very hard) and adding salt does help - for awhile. It last a very long time though.

  • Not fantastic
    28 Jan, 2014, By Heidi Does the job , but is not great. Failed the lasagne dish test. Will try Earthsap next

  • Such a great product I won try an alternative.
    31 Jul, 2013, By Marianne Such a great product I won try an alternative.

  • Update: I received my replacement bottle and it works great!
    By Nirvana Update: I received my replacement bottle and it works great! Dissolves beautifully and works well! Love it!

  • This product wasn’t dissolving properly in my machine so I contacted the company and they were very helpful.
    By Nirvana This product wasn’t dissolving properly in my machine so I contacted the company and they were very helpful. Apparently I got a dud product so they are going to replace it (Great service!). In the meantime I add a tablespoon or so to a cup, add some hot water, dissolve/mix it and then throw it into the machine (I use the Quick setting with no pre-wash). It works just as well as any commercial product and has a nice smell. The two main things that I love about this product is that it does not leave white streaks or cloudiness on my dishes ever and when I pour drinking water into my glasses there is no soapiness/bubbles!! Will definately buy it again!

  • Does leave your dishes sparkling clean, but has trouble cleaning dirty pots.
    By Griselda Does leave your dishes sparkling clean, but has trouble cleaning dirty pots.

  • The dishwashing liquid leaves my dishes sperking clean!
    By Giselda The dishwashing liquid leaves my dishes sperking clean!

  • I agree, this product cleans really well.
    By Mia I agree, this product cleans really well. I find that if I shake it before each use it helps. When it gets really think I add a little water and shake hard!

  • Love this dishwasher gel.
    By Santie Love this dishwasher gel. It lasts ages, but the last bit in my 1L bottle is going thick and dark - isn't doing anything to performance though.

  • Cleans very well and smells lovely.
    By Tracy Cleans very well and smells lovely. Can compete with any commercial brand on the market. The only disappointing thing is that if you leave it to stand in a cupboard for too long, it becomes thick and gluggy, almost like a solid lump. Anyone else experience this?

  • I'm impressed - cleans glasses really well and pretty much passed the lasagne dish test - only left a few bits behind.
    By leisl I'm impressed - cleans glasses really well and pretty much passed the lasagne dish test - only left a few bits behind.

  • Just fab!
    By Sylvia Just fab! We were very sceptical but we put it through the lasagne dish test and it passed with flying colours!

  • Love it.
    By Harriet Love it. It's very economical, as it lasts for ages. The smell is lovely and it cleans just as well as anything else I have used.
