The holiday season is upon us and you know what that means? ENDLESS dirty dishes! Let me just ask you this? Have you ever played the Dishwasher Game? It’s a game I play with myself: see how much I can load into the dishwasher. Sometimes, I even amaze myself! But other times, I realize I can’t run everything in the dishwasher, and some of the more delicate serving-ware has to be hand-washed, so that’s where Seventh Generation comes in. Here’s some information about why it’s so amazing:

    • Seventh Generation dish liquid contains only essential oils and botanical extracts, and delivers real cleaning power. Your tableware will be left fresh and ready to serve your next home cooked meal.

    • With authentic ingredients like lavender from the fields of Drome in the foothills of the Alps, clementines from sunny Calabria and lemons from the soils of Sicily, Seventh Generation natural dish liquid is free of unnecessary synthetic colors or chemically engineered scents.

     Here are the smells available:

    • Fresh Citrus & Ginger: hand picked Sicilian lemons, because the Sicilians say that if it’s not grown in Sicily, it’s not a lemon!
    • Free & Clear: for those who prefer unscented, but still non-toxic and hypo-allergenic!
    • Lemongrass & Clementine Zest: Clementines are harvested in Calabria, Italy
    • Lavender Floral & Mint: lavender fields are in Drôme Provençale, France, and harvested in their peak of the season (July-August)

    Don’t they all sound delicious? Well, my favorite of all is the Lemongrass & Clementine, because the citrus just perks up my day, even though I am doing dishes and doing dishes is never fun! The touch of lemongrass adds an extra, but different citrus smell that reminds me of Asian soups.
