(Closed) Household Traditions: Powdered Dish Detergent Review and Giveaway Ends 8/19


While I'm thankful I have a dishwasher that works, I'm paranoid about the chemicals in the detergents I've been using. I've tried several big brands and have never been impressed. Well, Tropical Traditions has a whole line of non-toxic household cleaners at Household Traditions, and recently had the opportunity to try their detergent for comparison.

What I'm most concerned about is detergent residue all over my dishes, particularly my son's sippy cups. I KNOW it's not all washed off from the rinse cycle because I can smell a distinct chlorine-ish smell on my "clean" dishes. That can't be healthy to ingest! Despite the many brands I've tried, I always smell this same chemical scent, and often find visible residue too. It's not the dishwasher either. I had the same issue even with our last dishwasher before we moved in March. So, after running the washer, I end up hand-rinsing all my dishes until the smell is gone! Ridiculous, I know, but I didn't know what else to do. Then, I received this...

The Powdered Dishwasher Detergent With Enzymes from Household Traditions. This detergent has restored my sanity!

This ultra-concentrated detergent comes in a huge 5 pound container with a scoop included. It contains no chlorine, phosphates, fillers, or added fragrances. Most household cleaners are toxic, but the entire line of Household Traditions is made using non-toxic ingredients and with no harmful by-products upon decomposition. Did you know that the use of phosphates in automatic dish detergents have been banned or very limited in many states? I've seen a lot of detergents at the store that now say "phosphate-free" here in California, but even those detergents STILL leave me with smelly dishes.

Although the ingredients used in this detergent do create a strong scent, I'm SO excited to report that my clean dishes DO NOT SMELL with this detergent! No scent, just nothing-ness! There is also NO residue, and my glass cups are shiny and everything is sparkly! I REALLY love the Household Traditions line from Tropical Traditions and I'm even more convinced of their commitment to safe products. In the past year, I've learned a lot about why using non-toxic cleaning products is better. By eliminating the harsh chemicals found in regular cleaners and going non-toxic, you are protecting yourself, your children, your home's air quality, and the environment. I'm SO glad I learned about this detergent! You will love it too!

Price: The 5 lb. container of Powdered Dishwasher Detergent With Enzymes is $32, but right now it's on sale for $19.99!

The Verdict: The
Powdered Dishwasher Detergent from Household Traditions is completely safe, and leaves you with scent-free, residue-free dishes for my family. I'm SO excited about this product! It's eliminated my worry AND given me clean dishes again!

I'd most like to try their Powdered Laundry Detergent; although all of their products sound great. I see they have a great sale on their laundry detergent. Wish I had found it...just bought some recently. Now that I'm on their mailing list I'll catch the next sale. :-)
