I have been a devote of Mrs. Meyers' Geranium dish soap for the last few years because I have loved the scent. Besides, they are "aromatherapeutic"
I was in Trader Joe's recently, passing by the cleaning products and I realized that I was almost out of Mrs. Meyers at home, so I decided to buy a bottle of Seventh Generation Lavender and Mint dish soap. It has a nice scent, cleans well and nice to have a change to spice up dishwashing.
Interesting information on the label: "If every household in the U.S. replaced just one bottle of 25 oz. petroleum based dishwashing liquid with plant-derived product, we could save 86,000 barrels of oil, enough to heat and cool 4,900 homes for a year."
A trip to their website gives many fun facts that encourage the use of eco-friendly products. So imagine, if we all used non-petroleum based laundry detergent, dishwashing soaps (for sink and dishwasher) that we could begin to reduce our dependence on petroleum. Sorry, Madge.
