There are a number of good, biodegradable dish soaps, so you can pick and choose, according to scent preferences, or a particular brand. One great dish soap brand is Seventh Generation. Dishmate and Ecover are two other good options. These soaps utilize natural products that will naturally biodegrade as well, breaking down into carbon dioxide, minerals, and water.
You can make your own natural dish soap! All you need is to buy borax, washing soda, citric acid, white vinegar, and kosher salt. You can find citric acid online. The ingredients are actually cheaper than normal dish detergent.
An important thing to do when looking for natural cleaners is to make sure that you check the ingredients, because it’s pretty easy for a company to advertise something as “natural” even if it doesn’t meet the standards of what most of us would consider a “natural” product. My opinion is that if you can identify all of the ingredients, it’s probably okay. I am currently using Trader Joe’s Next to Godliness Liquid Dish Soap which contains coconut derived surfactants, earth salt, lavender oil, tea tree oil, grapefruit seed extract, water and 0.00024% of food and drug quality color (which uses organic compounds, not inorganic pigments).
