I'm still trying new dish soaps, and this time I tried Planet dishwashing liquid, which only comes in a scent free and hypoallergenic version.
This brand is advertised as eco-friendly, and made with biodegradable ingredients.
Funny enough, when my husband first used it he said, "I don't like the smell." I responded, "it's scent and dye free, it shouldn't have a smell." He then said, "Oh."
I think he just said it as a knee-jerk response, since he seems to hate the scent of almost any scented dish soap I try, because after I said that he never complained about its scent again.
I found this soap did pretty well on lightly soiled items, although it was a bit on the thin side, which meant I felt like I accidentally squirted more out than I intended a couple of times.
However, it seemed to have a bit more trouble with heavily greasy items, and I had to keep adding more soap to the sponge to make sure I got everything clean.
For those who love scent this is not the soap for you, since the company's whole line of products is scent and dye free, but for those with allergies this might be something right up your alley!
Overall, I would buy this again if there was a coupon and sale, but I think I could find a green dishwashing soap I like a bit better.
I'd love to hear from more people who've used this product, or any of the other products from Planet, sharing how they worked for you. You can share your green cleaners review here for this or any other natural or eco-friendly brand.
Planet Dish Soap Is The One That Cleans & Suds In Hard Water
We have tried a lot of green and claim to be green but aren't (e.g., Method) dish soaps and just now found one that actually cleans and suds in our hard well water: Planet Ultra dish washing liquid.
It actually works like the un-green stuff and gets a zero or 1 from environmental working group (can't remember right now).
Thanks for your review. As you can see from my own review above I didn't like it quite as much as you did, but I'm glad it worked for you!
