Three Ways to Wash Your Dishes, With Less Waste



We love to have options when it comes to finding alternatives in pursuit of a low waste lifestyle. It’s nice to feel empowered in the choices we make and even better when we can find an alternative that suits our particular needs. Here we’ve gathered-up three different ways that you can keep your dishes sparkling clean while minimizing waste:

Customizable Dishwasher Detergent


With a few simple ingredients (most of which we carry in bulk), you can create a fully customizable detergent meant for the dishwasher. 
MIX TOGETHER:
2 cups borax
2 cups washing soda 
6 tbsp citric acid

Optional: ½ cup salt for extra scrubbing power
Optional/Customizable: 20 drops citrus essential oil for scent
Use 2 tbsp. of detergent per load. We recommend adding two tablespoons of vinegar to your rinse aid compartment. Keep in a glass container with a scoop for easy clean-up!

Soap Block

Our dishwashing soap block is ultra concentrated and surprisingly powerful when it comes to cutting grease and scrubbing dishes to clean perfection. Made with all vegan ingredients, this soap is phosphate-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and cruelty-free. Imagine how free you’ll feel using something so ethically superior to all other soaps? Keep it on a pretty wooden tray and pair it with a firm scrub brush; you’ll have yourself an attractive and incredibly effective dish cleaning set-up in no time.

Refillable Dish Soap


If liquid dish soap is more your speed, skip the plastic bottles you find at the grocery store and instead invest in our bulk, refillable dish soap by EcoDaisy. A little bit goes a long way and it’s simple, safe ingredients are gentle on hands and on our ecosystem. This no-residue soap doesn’t pose any significant health risks and uses a coconut-derived surfactant blend to get sudsy and clean your dishes effortlessly. Stop in and we’ll help you get your first bulk fill! Like always, when you return 20 empty bulk bottles, you’ll receive $20 off of your next order.

We hope you have some new ideas as to how to simplify your dishwashing routine in a way that minimizes waste. Let us know what other tips and tricks you’d like to hear about!
