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.
tangerine with lemongrass
essential oil blend of canarium luzonicum gum nonvolatiles (elemi) oil, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil, zingiber officinale (ginger) root oil, cymbopogon schoenanthus (lemongrass) oil, salvia sclarea (clary sage) oil, ilex paraguariensis(mate) leaf oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) oil, citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil, citrus reticulata rutaceae (tangerine) oil. proprietary, safer man-made ingredient blend

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.

    Best dishwasher cleaner!

    I've been buying and loving these products for about a year! No harmful ingredients and love the fresh tangerine and red pear smell!!!! Buying over and over again!!!

  • Michael


    My first experience

    My first experience with Grab Green hooked me. It was auto dish tangerine. Wow what a difference. When I opened the dishwasher the tangerine fragrance was sooo pleasant and the dishes couldn't have been more squeaky clean.
    It's been 6 years now and I'm a loyal and grateful customer of all of their incredible products!

  • Allie


    Great natural product

    Dishes are clean, smell amazing after coming out of the dishwasher. Love that it's good for the environment. I sought this product out after I moved and could no longer purchase it at my local grocery store. Will continue to order this product.

  • Greta, gfunkified


    They work really, really well!

    So lately I’ve been on the lookout for natural dishwasher detergent to avoid the whole eating off of chemicals thing. I had not had much luck, to be real. I mean, eating off of chemicals is bad, but so is opening the dishwasher to find that your dishes are only half clean and you have to either hand wash them or run a whole load over again. NOBODY HAS TIME FOR THAT. But. BUT!!! The Grab Green dishwasher detergent pods work really, really well. They get all of crusty stuff off of the dishes and silver ware, without leaving streaks behind, just as well as the “regular” detergents do. And they smell way better without the toxic chemicals, chlorine, dyes, or phosphates (all of the scary stuff regular detergents have).

    I'll be danged, it actually works

    Dishwasher detergents, among many other things, are under-going a revolution in the United States. As the use of phosphates is reduced or eliminated, cleaning performance will decline unless a solution or alternative can be found. I've been a loyal Cascade user for many years but recently found the performance had declined with the non-phosphate formula. This led me on a quest to find something that works as well as Cascade and Electrosol used to work. I've never been a fan of "eco" products since they never seem to work as well as regular brands. If you have to use 2 or 3 times as much to get the same results, that is not environmentally friendly.

    I expect a lot from my dishwashing detergent. I refuse to pre-wash or rinse, that's why I have a top of the line dishwasher. The most I'll do is scrape off hard scraps or excess before putting a plate, pot, or pan, in the dishwasher. To make it tougher, since I'm single, I do not run the dishwasher until it's full, often 5 days. I've tried name-brands and "eco" brands (that could be found on a store shelf), and was never really fully satisfied. Enter Grabgreen which I found by accident on Amazon. To tell the truth, I didn't expect much since it was "eco" but thought the scent combinations sounded intriguing.

    My first experience using Grabgreen was on a very full load of dishes that had residue from one of my favorite cold-weather comfort foods, ham and beans. There was also mashed potato residue and some greasy stuff, etc. Some of the bowls and the cooking vessel, had been in the dishwasher for 4 days so the residual was very dried on and there were even a few beans here or there. The last time I used Cascade with this type of load, I filled both detergent cups and ran it on pots and pans cycle with heated wash and rinse options on. There was still some gritty residue on about a fourth of the load. Since I did not expect the Grabgreen to work I didn't bother with the heated options but did use the pots and pans cycle. I also put one packet in the silverware basket as well as in the detergent cup to provide the equivalent of filling both cups. While the dishwasher was running, I was able to detect some pleasant aroma but not as much as some other reviewers claimed. I smoked for 30 years and just recently quit so perhaps I just don't smell as well as they do.

    Now for the results. I opened the dishwasher fully expecting to have to rewash at least half of everything. As I pulled more and more CLEAN items out I actually started smiling which is something I never do when unloading a dishwasher. The flatware was clean, the pots were clean, plates, bowls, glassware, etc., were clean. Ok, not 100% were totally clean. I found 2 drinking glasses that had a little grit on the outside of them. SInce I hadn't expected the Grabgreen to work I'd loaded an item over the top of them which partially blocked the spray. Does Gragbreen get everything 100% clean 100% of the time? No, but not even the old Electrosol or Cascade formulations did either.

    The Grabgreen is now my dishwasher detergent of choice although at some point I need to finish using up six or eight other brands that I didn't care for. Unlike another reviewer, all of my packets arrived intact so I have no issues purchasing Grabgreen from Amazon on a regular basis.

    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.

  • Lionel, Amazon


    Works Really Well

    Better than the 7th Generation Free and Clear. This cleans the dishes better and the 60 count means you don't have to reorder frequently.

  • Gautam Ganguly “Online Shopper,” Amazon


    Keeps the dishes and washer clean

    put a pack in and no need to fuss over more or less or spill or wet. The convenience is half of it. The performance is great as well!

  • AJ, Amazon



    I love these for 3 reasons - 1. It's on subscribe so they automatically ship and I don't ever run out. 2. They smell great and 3. They are cheaper than any other pod I have found. My kids have dish duty, I like the pods because there is no mess - no spilled dishwashing soap.
