The kitchen in the farmhouse where I grew up never had space for an automatic dishwasher. As soon as I could stand on something to reach the sink, I became the dishwasher.
The zero in the product name stands for no phosphates, coloring agents or chlorine. Ecover says its mission is “to make a healthy and sustainable lifestyle easy.” I can feel good about the ingredients working for our household and the planet, while my husband can simply be happy that they work.
I have to confess that we’re not exactly the wine goblet sort of household that cares a lot about spots on our dishes, so we don’t always use a rinse aid. When we have in recent years, it’s been vinegar. The picture I took of our glasses was after a wash with only the tablets and no rinse aid. They look pretty squeaky clean to me. However, the Ecover site recommends that you use both the Ecover Zero tablets and their Ecover Rinse Aid for best spot-free results.
