I have used this product for over a year. We have very hard water and I find Smarty dish tablets work as well as comparable phosphate full tablets. Glasses do tend to get a bit of a white film over time, but I had that problem with other products as we have hard water. After going so long with an eco-friendly unscented product, I find I can now "smell" dishes that have been cleaned with scented alternatives.

You would think the only difference between this and the pink grapefruit scented detergent is just the scent but it is not. We have been using these for a long time, and consistently, the unscented has let us down. The dishes don't come out clean, and even the ones that washed clean still have a weird white residue on them that requires another rinsing and scrubbing to get clean.

The Pink Grapefruit scented one (which really doesn't smell like anything really unless you put your nose over the vent when it's washing) works MUCH better - no residue and the dishes come out perfectly clean EVERY TIME.

We don't pre-rinse any of our dishes/glasses/cutlery and that is how it should be. This "naked" one cannot do the job. Don't waste your money, get the pink one instead!

      I buy the Method Smarty Dish *Free* (see attached pic) at #target. Not sure if this is the same product with diff package.
      Florida hard well water. I can't take fakegranced detergent and have tried many combinations to be able to use my dishwasher.
      This is the only combo that has worked for me...
      One Smarty tab in main closed compartment with added lemishine (make sure compmt is dry).
      Lemishine in open compartment.
      Small squirt of oxiclean on door or floor of washer.
      Oxiclean in rinse agent dispenser.
      I quickly pre rinse dishes and have found yogurt bowls occasionally need xtra attention.
      I can walk through the kitchen without being gassed by chemicals. Finished dishes don't smell or taste like any of the products.

        I like that it is non-toxic and better for the environment, and it cleans my silverware very well. However, it left a residue on several of my dishes. I tried using JetDry, but that didn't solve the problem. I'll have to switch back to my old dish soap.

            I have found this better than Shaklee powder, Cascade powder, Electrasol powder, 7th Generation powder and tablets. On the downside, if you handle a tablet, you should rinse the residue off of your hands right away. Also, I can't find this in stores so I have to mail away for it and pay shipping.

                I have used the NOT PLUS unscented version of the Method Dishwasher Tabs for years, and I have been very happy. They clean very effectively, are good for the environment (so they say), and I require little or no scent in my cleaning products. This product is NOT anything like those tabs. They are useless, leaving my same dishes with caked on food (whether or not I chose to pre-rinse) and a weird film on anything not glass or ceramic. So go with those, and stay far away from these. Just wish I could get a larger bag in the other version here.

                            After reading about the chemicals most commercial dishwasher detergents leave on dishes I went looking for a natural alternative. I tried several and was greatly disappointed with the cleaning until I tried Method. I am very fragrance sensitive so very happy to have a no fragrance cleaner.

                              I bought this because it was on sale, and was I wasn't satisfied with the inconsistent results I was getting from another leading brand dish detergent. Not only did this clean everything well without leaving any residue, there wasn't any need to use additional products for the rinse cycle. COnsidering the amount of loads it handles per package, I'd consider it a really good value for the money.
