Least toxic dishwasher tablets

(9 Posts)

I'm trying to get my family to reduce the number of harmful chemicals which we use in everyday toiletries, cleaning products etc.
I think I have a lot of things covered although doing things with castile soap is proving a little tricky.

What has got me stumped is trying to find out if there is a make of dishwasher tablet which uses less chemicals than the likes of Fairy but also cleans well.

any ideas?
Thanks all

I use these

Or Ecover

I also use just half a tablet and everything still always comes out clean smile

Lots of lovely chemicals in there , makes an interesting comparison with the standard ones. More organic chemicals but probably just as toxic.

Agree with the "break them in half" tip, that will cut your chemical use by 50% in one fell swoop!

Everything comes out just as clean.

Break them in half - that's genius! Going to try that.

I'm going to try the breaking in half too...

Ethical consumer website gives these the highest ethical rating:

Interestingly, ecozone scores more highly than ecover, ie more environmentally friendly.
