Powdered Dishwasher Detergent from Tropical Traditions: Review and Giveaway (Ends 2/12) CLOSED

Saturday, January 29, 2011 Posted by Dina N

I am a big fan of Tropical Traditions - the excellent coconut oil, the delicious organic food, the quality skincare, and the eco-friendly household products. A month ago, I posted a review of the Household Traditions Dish Liquid. It's only fitting to follow up with the Household Traditions Powdered Dish Detergent.

The dishwasher detergent is an ultra-concentrated formula that comes in a 5 lbs container, complete with a measuring scoop. The powder is non-toxic and safe for the environment. The Household Traditions dish detergent contains enzymes and is free from chlorine, phosphates, fillers or fragrances. It dissolves completely and leaves my dishes sparkling clean. I found I got great results even when using less than the recommended 2 oz per load.

Here is how to use it: fill one dishwasher cup for regular loads. Fill both cups for tougher problems. For really tough jobs, like baked-on food, soak item for 30 minutes or more in sink full of hot water and 1 scoop of detergent.

I am very happy with the Household Traditions Powdered Dish Detergent. A 5 lbs. container is now on sale for $19.99.

Deal Alert
Right now, domestic shipping is free with promo code 31111! Find out all the details here. The deal expires at midnight EST Monday, January 31, 2011, so hurry if you want to place an order. In addition, if you decide to buy the dishwasher detergent or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its uses! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge. You get a free book, and I get a coupon for referring you.
