How/Why we use it
What it is
sodium citrate
Natural mineral; helps detergents fully dissolve for maximum efficacy; preserves product appearance and prevents product deterioration; often adjusts pH levels.
sodium carbonate peroxide
cleans + removes greasy stuff
Natural mineral; oxidizing agent; breaks down into sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleach, and as an antimicrobial agent. The sodium carbonate boosts the bleaching effect of the hydrogen peroxide.
sodium sulfate
absorbs excess water
A mineral-derived ingredient used as a thickener in cleaners, soaps, and detergents.
sodium carbonate
water softener
Natural mineral; also known as washing soda, soda ash and soda crystals, it’s well known for its everyday use as a water softener and helps detergents fully dissolve for maximum efficacy.
sodium silicate
Natural mineral; adjusts pH levels to prevent product deterioration and prevents re-positing of removed debris.
inear alcohol ethoxylate
Non-ionic surfactant; lowers the surface tension of water so soil can be readily loosened and removed.
hydrated silica
Works as a free-flow agent by coating the surface of the powder, thereby reducing sticky interparticle interactions. Found in nature as opal and in the cell walls of diatoms.
red pear with magnolia
essential oil of juniperus virginiana (cedarwood) oil. proprietary, safer man-made ingredient blend.
for a pleasant scent.ensures a consistent scent
sodium polyaspartate
prevents food from resticking
Used as a biodegradable anti-scaling agent and a corrosion inhibitor.
amylase enzyme blend
breaks down proteins
Natural, plant. An enzyme used to remove starchy oils/proteins.
subtilisin enzyme blend
breaks down and removes grass, blood, egg and other protein-based stains
Natural soil remover breaks down starches
polyvinyl alcohol
forms the pod
Biodegradable water soluble film; a colourless, water-soluble resin often utilized in treating textiles and paper.
Our fragrances include both natural and safe synthetic elements to give consumers nature-identical fragrances at affordable prices. 
The ‘synthetic’ portion of the fragrance is very innovative.  It comes from citrus pulp (the white stringy stuff in citrus fruit) and terpenes* leftover by manufacturing in the pulp and paper industries which would otherwise be discarded as waste. So rather than throwing that out, they are scientifically changed into fragrant materials we use in our products.
*terpenes are the primary constituents of the essential oils of many types of plants and flowers. 
Because of the processing necessary to turn these substances into a form we can use in our fragrances we cannot call them “all natural” but actually what we are doing is better for the planet as we are upcycling what otherwise would be thrown out.
In addition, we practice the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) Code of Practice Guide which has a global commitment to providing fragrances that are safe for use by consumers and the environment.  
In addition to the IFRA set of standards, we abide by the California Air Resources Board, also known as CARB or ARB, is the "clean air agency" in the government of California, one of the strictest states in the US.

Safety information

Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not eat! Harmful if swallowed. If swallowed, drink water and contact a physician.




1. Everything in my dishwasher is covered with a white film? How come?
It could be a number of things:
  • The washer doesn’t have enough water circulating around the dishwasher to remove the powder particles. 
  • The water isn’t hot enough to full dissolve the powder. This is important for a couple of reasons, one is to properly dissolve all detergents and to disinfect the dishes - Very important! If the water isn't warm enough, it won't kill the germs or the bacteria that exist on the dishes. 
  • It could be the rinse cycle is too short and the drying cycle dries the powder to the dishes
  • If placing the pod in a dispenser, the door could be opening late in the cycle process so there’s not enough time during the wash and/or rinse cycle to completely dissolve the powder.  
  • If it is an older washer, more than 3 years, it could be the washer because those older models were not designed for powder products.
2. The pod didn't dissolve all the way in the dispenser? How come?
Same as above #1. 
3. Why are the automatic dishwasher detergent pods fragranced?
Grab Green automatic dishwasher detergent pods come in 5 fragrances AND fragrance free. We offer fragrances to create a full sensory experience - the citrus scents fit in perfectly with the kitchen and leave it smelling fresh and clean. All of the fragrances AND fragrance free dishwasher detergent contain sodium carbonate peroxide which is an odor remover. Whether you prefer fragrance or fragrance free make your kitchen and dishwasher smell good with our auto dish. Zero-streaking, naturally-derived, eco-responsible, and non-toxic.  
4. Will the dishes and plates taste or smell like the fragrance?
Our fragrance free Detergent has no smell so perfect for people who are sensitive to fragrance. 
5. Is it good for hard water?
Grab Green Dishwasher Detergent can be used in both hard and soft water! As long as the water in your dishwasher is hot, the pods should have no problem dissolving. 
6. How is it on crystal?
Crystal should not be put in the dishwasher, rather it should be hand washed! Our Grab Green Dish Soap is perfect for hand washing any of your fine cookware, bakeware, and dinnerware. 
7. Can I wash my "silver" in the dishwasher with Grab Green?
Silver should not be put in the dishwasher, rather it should be hand washed! Our Grab Green Dish Soap is perfect for hand washing any of your fine cookware, bakeware, and dinnerware. Silver-ware, however, can be put in the dishwasher and washed with Grab Green Automatic Dishwashing Detergent. 
8. Auto-Dish Detergent Pods outperform Cascade Pacs, Cascade Complete AND Cascade Platinum?

A scientific testing laboratory confirmed that Grab Green's pods have stronger cleaning power in the removal of tea with milk, red wine.

9. How does your Auto Dish Detergent perform on spotting on my dishes and filming?
On a scale of 0 - 5, provided by a scientific testing, our Auto- Dish scored a 4.8 out of 5 for spotting and a 4.6 out of 5 for filming! 

Protect Your Family's Health By Going Natural

When used with traditional detergents, the dishwasher can become one of the most harmful appliances in the home. Traditional detergents release harmful chemicals such as chlorine and sulfuric acid into the air. These vapors damage your indoor air quality and can lead to problems such as chemical burns and even asthma. Go green to protect your family’s health. Free of artificial fragrances, dyes, phosphates, and chlorine,

Homemade Dishewashing Detergent May Not be Tthe Best Way to Clean

Homemade recipes for detergent may seem like a good idea, but vinegar, salt, and even baking soda can be harmful for your dishes. Not only do these ingredients wear down enamel, they can scratch the surface of your dishes and can leave them feeling less than clean. Ditch these ineffective methods and go with our dish detergent, free of phosphates, dyes, and harsh chemicals; it cuts through dirt and grime, keeping your dishes clean. Both safe and effective, this dish detergent is great for use with any standard or European dishwasher.

    Cleans Better than Cascade

    I first got Grab Green for the non-toxic eco-friendliness and great fragrances, figuring I'd have to sacrifice a little on the actual cleanliness of dishes. But I just finished off the last bit of Cascade Complete we had hiding in the back of the cupboard and I have to say that Grab Green actually cleans BETTER than Cascade Complete. So it's a total win all around.

    Grab Green is amazing and safe

    I have been using Grab Green products for some time and let me tell you, they are effective, safe and they smell great- finally something that really works- thanks Grab Green!

    Dishwashing Perfection

    I am beyond thrilled with the grab green detergent pods! My dishes, glassware and flatware come out sparkling clean. I used to get spots on my knives for some mysterious reason with my old detergent. With grab green, the mystery is solved: no more spots! And as an added bonus, the delicious Red Pear with Magnolia scent has a light, lovely fragrance when I open my dishwasher. Grab green has it all: cleaning power, great scent plus non-toxic and cruelty-free!

    Not only does it work, it smells FANTASTIC!

    Before trying this product, I would have said, "Who cares about the environment if you have to hand wash half the dishes your dishwasher couldn't clean itself?" As someone who has always been loyal to Cascade Complete for washing my dishes to the standard I expect, I was not going to be easily swayed. But when I came across GrabGreen Automatic Dishwashing Detergent, Thyme with Fig Leaf, 24 Loads, 15.2-Ounce, when looking for something that might be more environmentally safe, I decided to give it a shot...with my trusty back-up detergent on hand, of course.

    The fragrance alone, when I was running the dishwasher the first time, had me hoping it would pass the clean inspection! The hot steam that released from the vents filled my house with an intensely fresh scent that didn't smell chemically or over powering. Most importantly, it cleaned my dishes JUST AS WELL and maybe even better! My glasses and plates were pristine with zero residue or film, and I was thrilled!

    I alternate back and forth between Pear With Magnolia and the Thyme with Fig Leaf (mentioned above) without being able to pick a favorite, and I will certainly try others in the future. Don't hesitate to spend your money on something you aren't used to because are getting a dependable detergent with Grab Green!! This company did what a lot can't these days: offer something new and still maintain quality!

    Great deal!

    Just want to say this is an awesome product and a great deal! This soap has kept my dishwasher from building up minerals inside completely while gently cleaning my dishes perfectly (no spots or soap residue either). No heavy obnoxious perfumes either.

  • Matt Curie, Amazon



    this detergent works better than anything i've ever had. that includes everything.. so it's a huge bonus that it is also less toxic than most brands. my dishes are always very clean and no residue.
