Citrus Sunshine Scented Dish Soap Concentrate!
I am also completed dedicated to getting plastic out of my house and my life. I know we've become addicted to bubbles in our soaps and shampoos, but I have learned to live without - and in fact be grateful that the surfactants are absent. I too was used to the appearance of bubbles to help guide quantity of soap to add to my sink. Now I just use the quantity that I used to use, and trust that it's doing the job. And by all appearances, it is. I find it a little expensive though, I have to admit. Environmentally conscious products, like this one, feel like luxury items. They are an extravagance for me, and if I wasn't so committed to the cause, I might shy away from the cost.
I am completely on board with the idea of these. But my first experience hasn't gone well. It may be my fault though. I don't mind that it isn't super lathery like others, I think the lather is just fine. Don't love the smell, but not big deal. My issue is with getting it out of the tube. That created a huge mess and I felt like I wasted a lot of product. And perhaps I put it in too much water, but the soap is so thin that it is super runny and squirts everywhere when it comes out. Can someone tell me how much water you should mix with one tube.
I have purchased these soap pods twice now. The first time was a trial. I think the hydroxyethyl cellulose, which is used to build the viscosity, had fallen out of spec. The product did not work so well, and my spouse told me he didn't like it. It was too watery and did not cling or clean as well. After looking at the ingredients, I am pretty certain the HEC was out of spec. So I tried it again and mixed it with water and it went into solution with a nice set-up viscosity. The second time made me more of a believer. The product has a nice cling and cleans well. I think the fragrance could be better, but overall, it is certainly better than buying another plastic container. Also, the pods are fragile, which I learned on my second go around, as one of them was easily torn apart from something under my sink. I now keep them in a hard container until use.

YOUR DISH SOAP | OUR PLANET
Plastic-free dish soap? Say it ain't so! etee's team of innovators have created a natural pod that holds our concentrated dish soap so that you can wave goodbye to the plastic dish soap bottles in the grocery aisle - see ya later!
Each biodegradable pod holds our all-natural, bio-based concentrated dish soap and is made with 100% plant-based ingredients. Free from SLS, Phthalates, Sulphites, Sulphates, Synthetics Colourants or Fragrance.
And how about some lemon limey citrus magic happening while you soap up your dishes... sounds good right? We partnered up with local smell good guru Christine Chanter so we could bring some sunshine right to those dirty dishes. 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
