etee Citrus Sunshine Scented Dish Soap Concentrate

review household going-green

I've been trying to reduce the amount of plastics we consume, and eliminating plastic dish soap bottles was on the list.

Photo of etee soap My search led me to a company called etee, who produce a range of plastic-free products, including some dish soaps. I decided to try the etee Citrus Sunshine Scented Dish Soap Concentrate, which comes as a 3-pack of liquid soap, each sealed in a pod made of beeswax and tree resin, as well as a few other plant based oils - therefore, they're fully compostable!

The ingredients are all plant-based as well: alcohol ethoxylate (plant-derived grease-cutting agent), polyglucoside (plant-derived cleaning agent), amine oxide (plant-derived cleaning agent), hydroxyethylcellulose (plant-derived viscosity modifier). The citrus scent comes from citrus essential oils.

Does it work?

Yes, but with caveats. Since I have a well in my sink to hold dish soap, I add water to a mason jar, squeeze in the contents of a pod, then give it a shake. I then pour some into the dispenser well. This worked well at first, but after a time I noticed I was barely getting any suds. I shook up a new batch, but this time left it in the mason jar. That batch worked well at first, also, but I noticed that after a while the soap partially separated from the water and clumped at the bottom. A quick shake solved the issue, but if using a built-in well in the sink, that's not possible. If you don't have a soap well in your sink, you can re-use an old dish soap bottle or you can buy a mason jar with dispenser lid from etee's website. I would avoid using a built-in soap well with this product, though.
