Do you love the smell of clean dishes when you open the dishwasher?  I do too, or at least I did until I learned that dish soap can be one of the most toxic chemicals under the kitchen sink.  And, the lovely smell is only the product of harsh toxins.  I don’t want toxins on the dishes that I eat off of – or any dishes for that matter.

Dishwasher Detergent:

Cascade, known for its dishwashing products, is not toxin free.  In fact, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) gave all of its products a “D” or “F” rating.

What to avoid: Cascade

  • Oxygen Bleach – adverse effects on endocrine and reproductive as well as overall adverse effects on development.
  • Sodium Hypochlorite – rated an “F” on EWG’s website, this toxin has a potential link to cancer and may affect the reproductive system.
  • Phosphates – high concern for the environment (especially in aquatic ecosystems).

Switch to Safer: Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder

  • It’s so concentrated that you only need 1 tablespoon per load!
  • Safe, biodegradable, &  plant based ingredients (such as soapberries).
  • Essential Oil Ingredients include: Orange, Lemongrass, and Thieves (supports immune system). (Link) 

Dish Soap:

What to avoid:

  • FD & C Yellow 5 – potential carcinogen (cancer causing) & risk to reproductive system.
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate – potential damage to DNA & vision, potential carcinogen.
  • Methylisothiazolinone – commonly found in dish soap, a synthetic preservative with a potential link to allergies. (Link)

Switch to Safer: Thieves Dish Soap

  • Plant based ingredients!
  • Essential Oil Ingredients include: Bergamot, Jade Lemon, and Thieves (supports immune system).
  • It’s safe to drink!  Young Living only suggests you “drink water to dilute”.

Hack: combine Thieves Dish Soap (enough to thoroughly coat the bottom) and water in a foaming hand soap dispenser.  Now washing that one little dish is so much easier – just push and go!

 

What are you waiting for?  It’s time to switch to safer!  It’s time to switch to Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder and Thieves Dish Soap!
