This is a great item. I was a little worried because I read some of the bad reviews about the thick film and stuck on particles. I also read that it wasn't good for pots and pans, which concerned me a bit because I do throw my pots and pans in the dishwasher from time to time.
I have used other detergents and experienced a white film, notably Palmolive Eco. I found that if I run the hot water in my sink until it gets really hot before I turn the dishwasher on, I don't experience any stuck on particles or films. I would recommend this to everyone who experiences this before you just throw the product out. It gets the water hot in the line before it starts to go through your dishwasher so your dishes aren't washed in cold water before the hot water gets there. I find this to work GREAT for me.
As for this product, I love it. No films or particles, cleans great, and there is no harsh smell when I pull my stuff out of the dishwasher. With other detergents, I always had to rinse my daughters pacifiers and other dishes because I was afraid there could be residual chemicals left on them, but not with this detergent. It's great and I would recommend it to anyone.

I love just about every Seventh Generation product, so I hate to write a bad review about this dishwashing powder. I want to write it, though, if it may help someone to save some money and not purchase this without being able to try it first. I have very hard water that leaves deposits on everything, so I have to be really picky about the dish powder I use. I have a two-drawer dishwasher that recommends using powder detergent, and I have to use a rinse aid in every cycle. I usually use a powdered detergent + Lemi-Shine + rinse aid to get my dishes clean. I hoped that I could find a natural powdered detergent that would work well. Seventh Generation, if used with rinse aid but without the Lemi-Shine, leaves a thick, nasty, hard white residue on all my dishes and silverware, and all over the insides of the dishwasher. It's horrible and it doesn't wash off! I tried handwashing everything so I could scrub the residue off, but it didn't work. I had to run my dishes through TWO more times with Cascade + Lemi-Shine + rinse aid, to get the dishes clean. Maybe this works better if you don't have Southern California hard water, but, sadly, this will kill my usually great dishwasher if I continue to try to use it.

    Comments about Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwasher Detergent, Free & Clear, 45 oz:

    I adore Seventh Generation dishwasher detergent. We tried everything, for years. Nothing gets our dishes this clean (and this holds true everywhere we've lived - which is all over the country, due to being a military family). Bonus: It has a truly excellent score from the Environmental Working Group.

                    I am very pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of this powder. I have used just about every brand in the book, not just Cascade, Palmolive, and Finish but also two or three expensive green brands that did not live up to their hype or their price. The Seventh Gen powder really impressed me and the smallest amount still gets the whole load clean. There's no aroma, but when I open the dishwasher after a cycle everything smells fresh. The only thing I don't like about it is the position of the spout, which makes it difficult to pour into the little cups of my KitchenAid without spilling a little. However, it's so effective that I will overlook that. Lasts a long time and seems to improve its ability to clean as time goes by. I used it with JetDri but I just started using LemiShine and that's the best combo I have ever found -- consistently effective and better than the non-"green" products I've used, plus absolutely no spots or clouds on glasses. P.S. Be careful not to store in a damp place or it will clump.

                        We have very, hard well water, with high iron. This is the only detergent that gets my dishes clean and spotless. All this plus it doesn't have harsh chemicals.

                              I tried this because I wasn't happy with my previous dishwasher detergent (Sunlight tablets). So far this product has done a good job and also dissolves completely. I like the fact that there aren't any useless dyes or scents added to it. I think it is much more economical to use than tablets or gel packs because you can use only as much as needed and it will last longer.

                                I use this in a Kenmore HE dishwasher with stainless steel interior. Mom uses it in a Bosch HE with plastic interior. It not only works better than any other brand I've tried, green brands or not, but it even removes past soap scum-dulling on my oldest Williams-Sonoma glassware. I use it safely on my antique glassware and dishes on holidays as well as on contemporary stoneware and earthenware (top rack only for all of the above). My Mom now swears by this powder too. I saw a review saying the powder arrived caked-- I have never had that misfortune and have used it for four years. I keep it in the cupboard under the kitchen sink and it has always been fine.
