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

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.

What's in our pod

fragrance-free • 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*, sodium percarbonate*, poly(itaconic acid-co-AMPS) sodium salt* , trisodium citrate dihydrate*, alkoxylated alcohol*, subtilisin, silicic acid*, tetraacetylethylenediamine*, alpha amylase, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH). *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

Dropps User For Life

I'm a Dropps user for life now. We live in an area where we have very hard well water. I tried a few detergents that left terrible water spots on our dishes and made them look dirty. After one use, I noticed the difference. After giving all of my dishes a soak in vinegar to start fresh, this detergent has kept everything looking clean and feeling smooth. I don't even need a rinse aid! Another thing I love is that I don't have to pre wash my dishes. They always come out beautiful even when put in the dishwasher with crusty, baked on bits. I also love that I don't have to buy sub-par detergent in bulk just to avoid the plastic. The plastic-free shipments are both convenient and easy on my conscience! As soon as I'm low on laundry detergent, I'll be switching over to Dropps for that. Thank you for making my life better!

Great but not plastic free

These dishwasher pods work great my dishes came out clean. I ordered twice but quit my subscription when I realized that the coating is made of plastic that dissolves into the water system. I'll be looking for an alternative that is free of any plastic coating.

Not dissolving all the way

Mostly good but I have had 3 loads in a row where it diifnt dissolve and instead stuck to the door. That means I did 3 loads of the same dishes. Big waste of energy.

Another great product

The dish washer pods are amazing! They clean the dishes better than the cascade pods I was using before. And I don’t have to feel like They’re leaving behind any residue that I’m then drinking/eating. I already use the detergent pods and love them

Dishwasher Pods

These pods work just as well as any other brand, but I feel better using products that are more natural and better for the environment.

These are the Pods

These dishwasher pods work great — better than all others I’ve tried. The new packaging (eco, sustainable, used both for shipping and storing that can be composted when empty, ensuring pods arrive intact…..perfect without breakage) makes me happy.
