Citrus Sunshine Scented Dish Soap Concentrate!
This is the best SLS free dish soap I have ever used, and believe me I have tried every single product! It actually does cut through grease/oil the same way the regular chemical ones do! You just have to change your concept of bubbles = cleans more because it works without many bubbles.
I will say, the price is EXPENSIVE and that part I don't enjoy (and my finances don't allow me to be able to afford monthly) however I prioritize my health/families health as well as the environment, and hope one day the prices go down. I really also enjoy the cloth I bought and the glass bottle as well :)
So, I have found that the soap works well. I have to mix it back into the solution on occasion but that's not an issue, and I will next try the idea of mixing it with hot water to see how that changes things. Also, I think maybe ripping open the pod may be causing some peoples problem with the mess they describe. I use a pair of larger scissors to cut one end of the pod open, just at the point where the tube/pod begins to enlarge past the end. Then I just start from the other end and slowly squeeze the soap out the now open end. Works great. And it does seem to help if the pods are at room temp when the the soap is squeezed from the pod.
I received my order of citrus sunshine dish soap. I really liked the idea but I'm not impressed. First off, after waiting a long time to receive my order, when I opened the box I found that the tubes leaked -- not a lot but it was like they melted and left an oily residue all over the inside of the package. Still it felt like there was stuff in the tubes. I found it very difficult to get the product out of the tubes. I didn't know how that was supposed to work, no instructions or suggestions were included. Just a box with the 6 tubes wrapped in brown paper. So I tried cutting the end and squeezing and mostly got it all over my hands and arms and kitchen counter rather than in the bottle. I got less than a tablespoon out of the tube - but maybe that's all I should have expected to get -- however, that seemed to make a really thin dish soap. So I used what I could get out of two tubes in one dispenser and now it seems to work pretty well on the dishes. But it smells terrible - no a pleasant scent at all. I won't be buying this product again. It really wasn't worth the wait or the stress.

You can check out the nose behind our scent on her website or find her on Instagram and see some of her sniffy creations!
Each soap pod makes 400 ml / 13.5 oz of dish soap.
These plastic-free pods are handmade in our Toronto area shop, so you can trust that not only are our employees fairly treated, they're also free to goof it up from time to time. We kept it local with getting someone in the Toronto area to formulate our dish soap concentrate, too!
How to Make Your Plastic-Free Dish Soap
Simply fill a dispenser or jar with 375 ml (12.5 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 a lid or cap and give the dispenser a good shake. Let it sit for an hour before first use. Dispose the pod in the compost or garbage (rest assured it'll biodegrade in either). Squirt some soap into your sink of water or onto a dish cloth and clean those dishes like a pro. Rinse any soap from your dishes using hot water and for best results dry them with a clean cloth after you're done.

"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
