Okay, I admit it. I’m strange.
Few people I know would be excited about this. In fact, I can only think of one other person by name that I am certain would be enthusiastic, but because she’s single her excitement would no where near match mine.
What is this thing that has me smiling and blogging? Are you ready? It’s…
I finally found a non-fragrant dishwasher detergent that actually works.
Not impressed? It’s also phosphate-free.
Okay, so I warned you I was strange.
It’s not that I find doing dishes so thrilling. My excitement is in direct proportion to the number of years and the time and money I’ve wasted trying to find a dish detergent that:
- was fragrance free; many that are labeled unscented actually have perfumes or essential oils like lavender <shudder>. Those of you with allergies or chemical sensitivities will understand.
- was affordable for those of us who wash more than one dish per day (the dirty dishes are never-ending at my house)
- actually got the dishes clean
- did not ruin any dishes or the dishwasher
I even tried a couple of homemade concoctions, with miserable results.
I’ve been using this detergent for several weeks now, and am very happy with it. I bought it from Tropical Traditions, where I have been buying coconut oil for a couple of years. It is very concentrated so one bottle will last a while, and since I got it on sale the price was quite reasonable.
I just wanted to share my excitement with all of you.
And yes, I do need to get out more. Thank you for asking.
