What Does "Free & Clear" Mean?
"Free" refers to the absence of added fragrances. Seventh Generation carefully selects ingredients that have minimal scent so that fragrances are not necessary. Some conventional products that are called â€œFreeâ€ actually use masking agents to cover the scent of their ingredients. Masks are fragrances that do not have a strong odor of their own, but can "overload" the olfactory sense so other fragrances are difficult to detect, too.
"Clear" is used to indicate that no dyes or pigments are added to the cleaning product. The dyes and pigments used in most conventional cleaning products are not biodegradable, and have aquatic toxicity.
Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.
One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chainâ€”from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.
The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Every time you use a Seventh Generation product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution, keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment and making the world a safer place for this and the next seven generations.

I love this, and thank you Lucky for adding them to your product list, so I can use all Seventh Generation products and save money.
I had been using Electrosol (now called Finish) tablets with Jet Dry ball on top for many years (since they first were introduced) because they work extremely well. I wish this product had a very mild, hypoallergenic natural fragrance to at least emit a more clean-smelling aroma. Just a little something to freshen the steam coming from the wash cycle would be nice instead of smelling the hints of food residue plus faint metallic and plastic odors. Perhaps a tiny bit of natural lemon peel or lavender would help. I really like Seventh Generation's light (and still hypoallergenic) fragranced laundry detergent...leaves no perfumey scent just clean-smelling...and wish this dishwasher powder was similar. My other issue is that it does not rinse quite as cleanly as my Finish tablets. Even now with adding the liquid Jet Dry into the rinse aid dispenser, this powder did not come as close to my expectations as I had hoped. It will also cost me quite a bit more.
love not having the smell of the dishwasher detergent that's in the regular supermarkets. this works well too on the dishes.
This power is better than any other commercial brand I have ever used. My glasses actually come out clean and clear, and they do not have that haze I always seemed to have with other products. Dishes really come clean even when I do not rinse them well and they sit for a few days before I turn on the dishwasher. Excellent product.
I got a brand new dishwasher 6 yrs. ago. Within three months it was yellow stained from the water here. I bought this for the "Free&Clear aspect since I have COPD. The first use when I opened the door sure shocked me, it was WHITE again. I pulled out the rack and the whole thing looked new again inside. Now the neighbors know and obviously the re-cycle guys. The pre-packed are the same also, haven't tried the liquid. Thank you, Thank you!!!
Since switching to Seventh Generation dishwasher soap, our dishes no longer have the calcification film they were getting. I no longer need to add a rinse aid to the mix. YAY!
Cleans the dishes, but most of the time it leaves small grains on my dishes, especially cups, that I have to wash by hand later, which is really annoying.
Great dishwasher powder--works well, no additives, and I like the extra
nice product, dishes are clear, no odors
This stuff is the best. I've stopped shopping around, no need to. It does the trick, and is absolutely environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
Have used this for years - always gets my dishes clean.
Seventh Generation automatic dishwasher powder really cleans my dishes and leaves the sparkling
This is a good product. I have hard water but Seventh Generation keeps my dishes AND my dishwasher nice and clean. My plumber also says it keeps my septic tank healthy.
Works great. Cleans dishes and no spots. None of that chemical stuff in it.
i've never had an issue with this dishwasher detergent! i think the price is great the size and it cleans well.
This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I had tried multiple dishwasher detergents, both liquid and powder, and was using vinegar for a rinse aid and still had cloudy dishes. We live in an area with water rated at 17 degrees hardness. On the general scale that's "Extremely Hard."
I took a leap of faith and picked this up at a local market. I now get totally spot free dishes and glassware with NO rinse aid whatsoever. This stuff is a miracle! Will be buying from Lucky from now on. I love it!
