Are you looking for non-toxic dishwasher detergents and soaps? There are now several brands making eco-friendly (& sometimes even zero-waste) soaps for a greener, healthier kitchen. Of course, we must use soaps that don’t contain harmful chemicals for our health, the water systems, and the land the water returns to. What’s remarkable about many of these brands is that they have subscription services where you will automatically have them delivered to your home when you run low. It’s so easy!!
