Clean up the Kitchen
Thieves Dish Soap & Thieves Dishwasher Powder
Enjoy the entire Switch to Safer series!
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.
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).

What to avoid:
