For squeaky clean dishes: handles stuck-on food, naturally

Our triple-action dishwashing detergent uses natural minerals to rinse away baked-on food and stains, no pre-wash needed. Glasses so sparkly and dishes so clean you can eat off them. Literally. 

Powers Away Stuck On Food

Sparkling Glassware

Rinses Away Stubborn Stains

No Pre-Wash Needed

Good to know...
Our pods are compact and efficient - designed to fit all machines including European and smaller apartment sized models.

Disclaimer: While we strive to make our packaging 100% eco-friendly, our bulk orders are still a work in progress.  Please be aware that while we continue to work on removing these components, bulk shipments will include a plastic bag and tape to avoid damage in transit.  We welcome any and all suggestions to improve these methods and appreciate your understanding as we continue to strive for a low waste solution!

What's in our pod

dye-free • chlorine-free • phosphate-free • phthalate-free • never tested on animals
A natural process called oxidation is what makes our dishwasher detergent pods so efficient. Oxygen based bleach is effective at cleaning and removing stains, and less aggressive than chlorine based bleach. Oxygen based bleaches attack the structure of the stain or soil residue to help whisk it away down your drain. It's science!
We add enzymes to our detergents to fight stubborn stains. Enzymes are molecules that target the removal of one type of molecule, like proteins or starch. We use a blend of enzymes, including protease (a protein seeker) and amylase (a starch seeker) in our detergent to get the best results.
Not all superheroes wear capes. Our pod is made from a water soluble casing called Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), which dissolves upon contact with water and is consumed by microorganisms.
Sodium carbonate (processing aid)*, sodium percarbonate (oxidant)*, Itaconic acid co AMPS (polymer)* trisodium citrate dihydrate (chelating agent)*, alkoxylated alcohol (surfactant)*, subtilisin (protease enzyme), silicic acid (chelating agent)*, tetraacetylethylenediamine (oxidant)*, alpha amylase (enzyme), fragrance, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH) (synthetic water soluble film). *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

Clean & Green

I really like these pods. They get the dishes, glasses, and pots sparkling clean without leaving any residue. Pods dissolve completely. Just ordered another box of these (their biggest box) during their Black Friday sale. I also love that these are made in my state, so not only am I shopping green but I'm also supporting a business in my community.

Dishwasher Detergent Pods

After using Dropps pods with liquid detergent for my washing machine, I was surprised that the dishwasher pods contain a powder detergent. I wondered if such a tiny amount would get my dishes clean. Well, I am pleased to report that everything has come very clean; in fact, I'm sure my cutlery is cleaner than it was before. We just use a standard wash-- nothing fancy, no extra scrub time. I like that the detergent pods come in a cardboard box that is extremely strong to avoid mailing mishaps, and yet unfolds to be completely recyclable. I store the pods in a plastic container I purchased which contained pods previously, but those pods were larger and sometimes barely fit in the detergent container. I am pleased with this new prodouct and will continue to purchase as an ongoing subscription. Thanks, Dropps!

Good product !

Came in a box with no plastic container or plastic packaging. Felt good to do our bit to be more eco-friendly. Product works good- cleans the plates, glasses well. Sometimes the spoons don’t come out as clean as our previous pods (cascade), but we do not mind as this one is more friendly to earth & devoid of any harmful chemicals !

Best detergent with no earthly footprint

Love them. They actually get the dishes clean and there is no trace left behind. That makes me feel great about them. I loathe leaving more plastic in my pursuit of cleanliness.
