Did not work in my dishwasher
 April 27, 2016
"I have used Beter Life dish soap for awhile an have been very pleased so when my normal dishwasher soap (Ecover Zero) was out of stock I gave this a try. Did not work well at all. Had to rewash almost the whole load of dishes. Left a residue an didn't even get all the food off some stuff.
To be fair I have an old dishwasher but it still cleans really well an I use vinegar as a rinse agent .
Like the safe natural based ingredients but was very displeased with the results.

the best!

"I've been using Automatic Magic for about 2 years & it is, in my experience, THE BEST green dishwasher detergent out there. Not only do my dishes not have a white film, they come out super clean and shiny.
I would advise the one star reviewer to service their dishwasher; my dishes were coming out grody for about a week before I realized the drain was clogged.

"Knowing this product consists of a lot less chemicals makes me feel that much better when using it on dishes. I have had no problems with it and intend to repeat purchase."

Good product

"I really like this product. My dishes come out clean and it does not leave a white film. I use this along with white vinegar in the rinse agent dispenser. This is one of the better products I have used. I also use the Better Life whatever spray and the stainless steel spray. Those work amazing!"

So disappointed
 November 6, 2013
"I'm a big fan of Better Life products but unfortunately this one fell short. I've used it several times on the normal setting which is usually more than sufficient for us. I tried different amounts of detergent and levels of food left on dishes. The results left some food on dishes (most annoyingly, a powdery coffee cup residue), spots, and improper drying. To be fair, I do not use a rinsing agent but I have never had to. I own a new dishwasher that has functioned great with another brand of detergent (that's not as eco friendly but still safer than the #1 brand). I really wanted the Better Life brand to be great. I'm curious what others have experienced and if there's something I can do to make it work well."
