I bought this Seventh Generation dishwasher detergent a while back. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I'm not big on environmentally friendly - I need things that work - but if I can put both in one package, that's cool. Well, I only have two problems with this, after having used 3 boxes: First, if you do not wash the dishes thoroughly before putting them into the dishwasher with this detergent, they will come out dirty. So where's the labor savings there? Secondly, all of my dishes have a coating of something on them after using this detergent. I have never in my life used a rinse aid, and have never had a problem like this when using Cascade. So, while the idea is good, the execution in this product is bad. Save your money folks; I wasted mine for your benefit.
Another point of personal pride: My first and third sons started building a house on speculation in February, while my oldest was working as an economist at a "big financial house" (from which he's been downsized, along with tens of thousands of others). Son #1 was the money man, son #3 can do anything with his hands. Anyway, they finished this house, sold it, and closed it on Friday. In this economy especially, you can see me swelling with pride.
Finally, to make you laugh, a couple of weeks back, a guy came door to door selling aerial photos of houses. I looked at the tiny sample print he had, studied it, and said, "You must have taken these last October?" He asked how I knew, and I pointed out the coloration of the trees and the cars in the back yard. Then, out of the blue, I said, "I'm glad I wasn't out dancing naked in the back yard on that day!" Poor guy didn't know what to say. Of course, I never bothered to tell him I can't dance.
