Very watery, but does the job.
26/10/2023, By Lisa
Very disappointed after how great their concentrated surface cleaner is. Makes everything slippery, no foam, no smell and so watery need to use loads so doesn't last long...
23/10/2023, By Amy
No foaming at all. Leaves a weird coating on the dishes even after rinsing well.
03/03/2023, By Claire
Not a fan of this one, although I am not familiar with other brands of natural dishwashing liquid. This one seems to add oiliness to the water and leaves a rim of dirt that does not happen with commercial dishwash liquid. I also don't like the smell and there are no bubbles. Seems as if it does not clean effectively. Now I know that bubbles may be unhealthy so I will excuse that, but I don't like the oiliness. Still, if I had to choose between this one and commercial dishwash liquid, I would choose this one purely because it's better for my hands.

I'm impressed with this product

The smell is not too great, also makes the water look dirty rather than soapy and clean. However, it does do its job in cleaning the dishes well.
17/07/2020, By Meyerine

Good clean
25/11/2019, By shalla CM
Love the smell and cleanliness it provides...
25/11/2019, By Linnie
It doesn't give the dishes a good clean. I used it a couple of times and it always made the dishes feel greasy, not clean. It's just sitting in the back of my cabinet now.
03/09/2019, By Heather
Did not find this product effective at all. The dishes still felt greasy afterwards, even if i increased the dosage. Couldnt really smell the citrus. I prefer dishwashing liquid with a bit of foam.
24/01/2019, By Julia
I was very disappointed when trying this product, horrid smell and no suds. I can't wait for it to finish. won't buy again
26/10/2018, By Ashleigh
The container says you needs 2 Tbs of the product but even then it does not work, even though we also used very hot water as the directions instructed. In addition it smells like old chip oil and ALL the dishes felt greasy after washing them, even the glasses. After 1 week we had used up half the 1L bottle! I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing as there are many people saying how poorly the product performed. I will definitely not be buying this again and Faithful to Nature should not stock this product as it does not work.
22/10/2018, By Jolande
Very disappointing. Very thin and have to use a lot so wasteful and not good value for money.
18/09/2018, By John
Great product, all naturla
10/09/2018, By Desire
Waste of money. It simply doesn’t work.
28/08/2018, By Michelle
This product doesn't have a pleasant smell and, as the label says, needs really hot water for greasy dishes and even then doesn't work well. I felt I was using more water in order to get my dishes done and they were often left with an unpleasant residue. Wouldn't buy it again.
21/08/2018, By Jo
very watery and you have to use quite a bit to make a difference on dirty dishes. I prefer the more concentrated ones
30/04/2018, By Sandy
Makes the water look dirty & doesn't foam. Wouldn't buy this product again.
14/03/2018, By ALF
I like this product; my only reservation is that it’s very thin and diluted, so one uses a lot which makes it not very good value for money
27/02/2018, By KomboKitten
I love this soap. It is so extremely relieving to finally be using gentle and natural products when washing dishes. I decant mine into a hand soap dispenser. When washing, I use 2 squirts per each few items & don't add the soap to the dishes but rather directly onto the sponge. I get great foam and have no complaints. Will definitely get this again and again!
11/09/2017, By Taryn
Was finished in two days, household of 4 people. Not strong enough
Wouldn't buy it again
28/08/2017, By Amber
Terrible. Doesn't foam, stinks and absolutely does not clean dishes

Terrible. Doesn't foam, stinks and absolutely does not clean dishes
01/08/2017, By Maria
I'm quite disappointed that I wasted money trying this soap. It's a pity, since I do like other Pure Simple products! But this is bad on all counts - it smells terrible, doesn't clean the dishes properly or make them smell nice. It absolutely doesn't get rid of any form of grease, you have to use a lot of liquid to get greasy dishes even mildly clean. I definitely won't be buying again!
10/07/2017, By Leslie
Do not like it at all. NO foam, does not remove fat and smells terrible.
05/06/2017, By nicki
Not a bad washing liquid. Value for money, but I didnt enjoy the scent
12/01/2017, By Julie
Pure Simple dishwashing liquid has a terrible scent/smell, its very watery and does not foam at all. It did not clean and left and awful smell. I hate wasting anything but could not continue using it. I would not recommend this product.
13/09/2016, By Victoria
Murky water and a bad smell- not what I want to experience when I am tackling a mountain of dishes. It also leaves an oily residue. It was great at cleaning marks off my driveway I must admit. I dont debate cleanliness but really not pleasant to use compared to the other dish washing liquids Iv used from faithful to nature.
07/09/2016, By Sue
Product has to be used in VERY hot water. I use more than normal to clean dishes. Dissapointed with this product as I like their other products - mainly the castile soap bar.
07/02/2016, By Abigail
A great product, gives my dishes a fresh and clean appearance
29/04/2015, By Janine
Works well in very hot water as instructed. Need to use quite a bit more than the label suggests - otherwise you are left with a bit of an oily residue. Works like a bomb in a dishwasher in a pinch ;)
13/01/2015, By Astrid
Unlike other Pure Simple products, this one is a bit of a dud. Its very watery, so I ended up using too much in the diswashing water. It works better if you put it straight on the sponge, but you end up using a lot, too.
I don know about the citrus essential oils that are supposed to be in the liquid, but it smells like simple soap, like the unscented castile soap from the same range.
28/10/2014, By Diana
Don’t like the dishwashing liquid, it has a funny smell and the water is cloudy and it doesn’t do the job , will try a different brand, love your service ,thank you!!
15/10/2014, By Tanya
Sorry but this product is a waste, as you need to use so much soap to get any use out of it and it doesn't smell good. I though it would be an earth-friendly and economical product but I ordered it less than a month ago and it's got about one more wash left.
14/10/2014, By MIRIAM
Im happy that I only bought a small bottle of this dishwashing liquid. I do not like it at all.

It doesn get super foamy, which is fine, but once youve washed your dishes, they come out oilier than when they started.

If you don rub your dishes dry afterwards, they look and feel oily.

I will not buy this product again and I wouldn recommend it to anyone. :(
26/08/2014, By Jonathan
Works well with really hot water, but you can only do one sink of dishes otherwise it leaves an oily residue. Smells nice too. Doesnt foam but you get used to it quick.
04/07/2014, By Gillian
Rather buy Better Earth or Earthsap, this smells funny, doesn foam well and leaves a oily residue.
