Dish Detergent Powder & Refills

Why We Love It: Nellie’s Dish Powder easily penetrates grease, food particles, and more, leaving every plate spotless. Plus, this biodegradable, septic-safe, and phosphate-free formula is plant-based and kind to the environment. Traditional liquid detergents are made of at least 50 percent water. Nellie's does not think selling you water and moving water around the planet is a very good idea. More cleaning power can be packed into a smaller space with a powder formula and this one packs a punch - you only need 1 tbsp per load in your dishwasher.

Use & Care

Add 1 tbsp detergent into the designated space in your dishwasher. If machine has no detergent dispenser, place 1 tbsp in bottom of dishwasher. More powder may be required in hard water areas; soft water may require less.

Rinse heavy food residue from cutlery and dishes. Do not overload the dishwasher. Do not overuse dishwashing detergent. If a film remains following the cycle, place a cup of distilled white vinegar (with 5% or less acidity) in a bowl on the bottom rack of the dishwasher during the rinse cycle.

The best dishwasher detergent!

This gets my dishes super clean and doesn’t leave any streaks, it’s exactly what I’ve been searching for!

Never going back!

Switched from dish detergent pods to this powder and I have loved it! Super convenient and I honestly feel like my dishes are cleaner because of it.

Love it!

No less powerful than brands I’ve used in the past. You really don’t have to compromise to be zero waste

Love it!

I love this stuff - I'm on my third or fourth refill now. The 4 cup size lasts my boyfriend and I over two months, and it gets our dishes just as clean as any conventional liquid detergent. Not only do I feel so much better about not throwing away those giant plastic jugs, a 4 cup mason jar is also much easier to store.

The best detergent powder!

My husband and I both love Nellie's detergents! We've been using them for a while now (I think this is our 3rd refill) and feel the product works great. Dishes are clean and not spotty or with residue. I recommend Nellie's dishwasher and laundry detergents, for sure!
