Dishwashing Detergent - More Green Cleaners from Amazon.com

Several years ago, I went completely green on everything in my house including my dishwasher detergent. Many green cleaners can be made at home using a few basic ingredients, but I have found that some green cleaners are better purchased, such as dishwasher detergents and carpet cleaning solutions.

I've tried several brands of detergents for the dishwasher, including Planet, eCover and Seventh Generation. eCover was by far the best. I won't buy the others now. It is phosphate free, so it isn't contributing to the phosphorus pollution in the water.
