Product Review: Seventh Generation Dish Soap

I don't know about you, but I am tired of using dish soap that doesn't cut grease, smells bad, costs a fortune (and still doesn't work), leaves an icky film on hands and dishes, and/or takes a ton to clean anything. That's why I decided to try some new dish soaps, like the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day one I reviewed here and now Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid in free & clear. You can get it on Amazon for a good price in 25 oz. bottle packs of 1, 2, or 6. There is even a 50 oz. bottle.

Rating Out of 10
Overall: 10
Scent: 10
Gentle on Hands: 10
Cleaning Power: 10
Cost: 9

To sum things up quickly, this soap is awesome. It is scent and dye free, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. This one 25 fl. oz. bottle has lasted us three months and is still going. I just refilled the soap dispenser today and there is STILL about half a dispenser left. You only need a tiny amount to wash your hands or dishes. Any more, and you end up with way too many bubbles. You just don't need much. That tiny bit cuts through grease and smells easily leaving dishes nice and clean with little effort. It even rinses off quickly without leaving a film.

I love how gentle it is on my hands. There is no need for a separate hand soap in the kitchen. My hands don't get dried out at all. Nor do they feel slimy or sticky after. This isn't one of those soaps that claim to have no scent then smell icky, it really has no scent at all (and this is coming from a pregnant lady with a sensitive nose). Let me tell ya, when dish soap smells were driving me nuts in the first trimester, this was a lifesaver.

We end up saving time washing pots, pans and dishes (everything that can't go in or doesn't fit in the dishwasher) since the soap works so well.

It costs a bit more than cheap brand. As A pointed out, it's worth it since it lasts so long. He is a big fan of this soap as well. We've tried the cheaper soaps, like Ajax, and have to use a ton to clean anything. Thus, Seventh Generation actually saves us money. I'd still like it even more if it cost less, though. I haven't tried any of the scented versions of this soap because I honestly don't think it's needed. The free and clear is awesome.

Seriously, I can't say enough good things about the Seventh Generation dish soap. There is literally not one negative thing I can think of to say about it. I wholeheartedly suggest you try it for yourself.
