I'm no stranger to using soap berries or natural dish soap, as I have used natural products my whole life, thanks to being brought up in a nutrition/health oriented household. (Thanks Mom!)
I've used soap berries for many years for doing laundry, cleaning around the house, and dishes, but I've never seemed to get the right formulation. I had the opportunity to test and review Pure Care 100% Natural Soap Berry Dish Detergent, so I jumped on it, and couldn't wait to test it out.
The problem I find with a lot of natural dish soaps is that none really are able to cut the grease very well, and I usually have to add more soap to my sponge, so I fully expected to have to do that with this too. It works so well, I did not need to! :) I couldn't believe it!
I also found myself not needing to add more to my sponge as often while doing a sink of dishes. Just shows how poorly the other natural brand I have was at cleaning. I still have a little bit of another natural brand left, so I am still trying to use that up, and started washing a greasy dish, and it wasn't cutting it. I reached for the Pure Care soap nut bottle, and finished washing it with that, and it came off so easily!
I am sold on this! It is a bit expensive, but when I think about having to use MORE of my other natural soaps, it probably comes out about the same.
I've also started using this in the bathroom hand soap container as well. I dilute it in there, but it works great, and is gentle enough to wash hands with. I normally prefer unscented products since I have mcs, and actually did not realize this was going to be scented or I probably wouldn't have gotten it, BUT it is a natural essential orange oil, and is not overpowering in the least. It is very very light and pleasant, and probably aids in cutting the grease so well. I am switching over to this brand for hand washing dishes, and for hand soap in the bathroom as well. I just love it!
