Unscented Liquid Dish Soap Concentrate! (Jar not included)
after waiting for over a month to receive this product it finally arrived. i absolutely have no idea what to do with it as far as opening it??/ REALLY I am trying so hard to be sustainable but truly couldn't you please send directions on what to do with this yellow beeswax? covering. nothing is on the web that i can find and certainly nothing in the box HELP!!
Hello Sallyann. My apologies if you did not receive an insert with the directions. We do have them listed on our website under any of the soap concentrates or in the 'need to know' Product FAQs. https://www.shopetee.com/pages/how-it-works
Fill a dispenser or jar with 375 ml (12.7 oz) of water.
Rip open your pod of concentrated dish soap over the jar and squeeze the soap into the water.
Stir the mixture, cover with the lid or cap and give the dispenser a good shake. Let it sit for an hour before first use.
Dispose of the pod in the component or garbage (rest assured that it will biodegrade in either). NOTE: some municipal composting programs won't accept natural waxes, so ensure yours does before adding.
Squirt some soap into your sink or onto your scrubby and clean those dishes like a pro.
Rinse any soap from your dishes using hot water and for the best results, dry them with a clean cloth after you are done.
I recently bought both this dish soap and the lemon hand soap concentrate. I've now used both and am pleased with the results. Effective soap, minimal packaging, biodegradable shipping pods.
My only minus was that by buying 9 pods at once and then receiving them in a single box, they all got jumbled around in transport. The individual pods weren't labeled (unlike the IG ads) and the labels taped on the (biodegradable paper!) bags of three came off in transit. With the pods all mixed up in the box, it's kind of a game of roulette whether I get dish soap or hand soap with any given pod. Seems like growing pains for a young company's operations so forgivable.
As a side note, I contacted support during shipping to check on my order and they were prompt & friendly.
Love that there is no plastic and that the pod can be composted. No issues with squeezing out the liquid (well only my own issue with breaking the pod all apart to get every last bit and making a bit of a mess in the process).
The first several times I used it it seemed to work great - as well or better than my previous liquid. But after that it did not seem to cut the grease at all . Possibly I did not mix it enough, ad the pump i was using took the good stuff from the bottom first. Will retry with the next pod and post an update.
As others have said it is expensive, but totally can understand why at this stage in production.

"Mine arrived in perfect shape. I used a few drops on a wet cloth to wash off lipstick on a glass. Wiped off easily. What I loved is unlike some of the leading dishsoaps I didn't need to rinse with a ton of water. Who want soap residues in their Pinot Grigio!" - Diane R
"We’ve been using the liquid soap now for a bit and this is what I think: Works REALLY WELL, like REALLY well: cleans up all the buttery/oily messes we’ve had so far without leaving any greasy residue; bubbles up nicely with the Swedish dish cloth/ luffa sponge (Also, I LOVE THIS SPONGE ITS AWESOME!!); Dispenses out of the spout well and doesn’t clog it up the way I was worried it would..." - Annie B
"I've gotten to use the soap and scrubby a few times now. I used to fill my sink with water and squirt a bunch of soap in. In an effort to use less water, I switched to a plastic scrubby brush that you fill with soap. I found that the head needed frequent replacing and that I wasted a lot of soap which leaked out between uses. The etee soap has been a perfect solution. I find that it works great and you really only need a small amount... I'm hoping not to buy any other dish soap." - Jessica P
