Why choose Eco Friendly Dishwashing Tablets and Powders.

Why choose Eco Friendly Dishwashing Tablets and Powders.

It is not something easy to say...but my son has quite sever food phobias. He only drinks water, and has always preferred it from a drink bottle. In the past, he would absolutely refuse to drink from glasses, as he said the water tasted gross, and it got me thinking... What if it was my Dishwashing Powder/Tablets...because glasses come straight out of the Dishwasher, and generally drink bottles get washed less often as we just refill them.

So, I made the switch, to only eco friendly Dishwashing Powder/Tablets, when I started stocking them here at Neatspiration, and as soon as I made the switch, he now, WILL drink water from cups!!!! I have no explanation other than that as these products are natural and eco friendly, they must not leave a residue and scent like my supermarket brand must have.

Then, I did a bit of research to see what was really in my supermarket brand.

What are supermarket brand Dishwashing Powder/Tablets made from?

Large Dishwashing Powder and Tablet Manufactures will tell you their products contain Alkaline salts, Surfactants, Bleach and Corrosion inhibitors, and even though this seems harmless enough...what they really mean is their products contain some chemicals which are really harmful. According to ewg.org, a well well known Dishwashing Tablet even has chemicals in them such as Sodium Polyacrylate, Alcohol Ethoxylates, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Fragrance and Benzotriazole. All of these chemicals are a concern for the environment, and the majority of them cause skin irritations, allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems. Shockingly two of the ingredients can cause developmental & reproductive toxicity, and also cancer.

So really harmful chemicals being used on dishes we eat from, and cups we drink from...mmmmm I don't think so...

Oh, and if you are looking for an ingredient list, you may have a hard time...

What are eco friendly Dishwashing Powder/Tablets made from?

There is an alternative to all of the above mentioned ingredients, but that's not good financially for big business. All I can say is thank goodness we have so many eco conscious manufacturers here in Australia, who have taken them on - 100% Naturally! Eco friendly Dishwashing Powder/Tablets, generally are very transparent and list their ingredients. They generally contain Mineral Salts, Plant Based Non Ionic Surfactants, Bio Enzymes and Natural Fragrance.

Do eco friendly Dishwashing Powder/Tablets work just as good?

Yes! I have personally tried every brand I sell here at Neatspiration, and they all work just as good as the supermarket brand I used to use, and I don't have to worry about nasty chemical residue on my crockery, cutlery and glassware.
