Tropical Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

If you've been following my blog for awhile you know how much I love Tropical Traditions and their sister site Household Traditions.  They have so many great products using all natural ingredients, including virgin coconut oil so it is a great site if you are looking into "naturalizing" your life.  I have tried quite a few of their products and have not been disappointed yet so I knew that the Powdered Dishwasher Detergent would be just as good as the rest of the Tropical Traditions items that I've had the pleasure of reviewing.

Suffice it to say, I was correct in my assumption.  The Powdered Dishwasher Detergent cleans my dishes just as well as the brand name products that I can buy in the store.  However, the amazing thing about this detergent is that there are no phosphates, chlorine, fillers or fragrances anywhere to be found and it is guaranteed to work as well as the expensive brand name products that you can find in your local stores.  This product can be used whether you have hard or soft water and it won't clump or leave water spots on your glasses.  In fact, while you can use a rinse agent with this detergent, it's really not necessary because your dishes will come out sparkling clean.  I'm pretty diligent about rinsing plates and glasses before putting them into the dishwasher because we have a cheap apartment dishwasher without the nice food grinder that are found today but I don't think I need to rinse the dishes first with this detergent.  My dishes were very clean using just the normal cycle.  I didn't have any grit left over like I have with some detergents because this stuff dissolves so quickly in water there is nothing to leave behind.  Here's the best part, it's only $19.99 for a 5 lbs tub!  That is easily less expensive than many other brands and it's not only better for you and your family because it's non-toxic but it's also better for the environment.  Everyone wins!

The folks at Tropical Traditions have been so generous and have offered one of my readers a 5 lbs tub of this Powdered Dishwasher Detergent for FREE!
