Household Traditions/Tropical Traditions Powdered Dish detergent review and GIVEAWAY!!

As many of you know, I have been working really hard to raise money for my friend Laura and her family. Are you not familiar with Laura and her story? You can read it HERE!
Right now, through 30 August midnight (EST) I am having an online raffle to benefit Laura and her family! There are over $1400.00 worth of prizes up for grabs. A list of prize packs can be found HERE, and the rules and guidelines for the raffle can be read HERE!
I sure hope you take the time to support this family and enter yourself to win some awesome prizes!


I love Tropical Traditions! I have tried out many of their products and have been impressed by each one! This time around I was sent 5 lbs of their powdered dish detergent!
This is what I received:

This stuff is REALLY GREAT!
It really gets my dishes clean! No residue at all!
You know what I really LOVE about this dish detergent?
It contains none of the following: Chlorine, Phosphates, fillers or fragrances. It's non-toxic and safe!

The following information taken from the Tropical Traditions website:
Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent With Enzymes is free of:

Chlorine
Phosphates
Fillers
Fragrances
Ultra concentrated!

Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent is non-toxic and environmentally safe with no harmful by-products upon decomposition. Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent does NOT contain chlorine, phosphates, fillers or fragrances. Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent rinses away completely leaving no residue on your dishes so you get a clean, safe sparkle.

Contains absolutely no phosphates!

Based on the same ingredients as our highly successful Powdered Laundry Detergent, Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent uses powerful, non-toxic ingredients to clean and sanitize your dishes, pots, and pans without the use of chlorine, phosphates, fillers or other harmful ingredients. It is guaranteed to work as well as the leading commercial products and it is economical to use.

Many states have now banned or severely limited the use of phosphates in automatic dish detergents. Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent contains absolutely no phosphates or other toxic materials like chlorine but still gets your dishes clean.

Use Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent as you would your normal dishwashing detergent and follow recommended use instructions for the type of dishwasher you have. Depending on your dishwasher, you may be able to use half as much as you used before!

Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent dissolves easily and won't clump as some other brands might do. Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent can be used in hard or soft water.

Since Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent does not contain chlorine, you won't get that chlorine smell in your kitchen like other products might leave behind.

Though you can use a rinse aid with Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent, it is not necessary, as it leaves your dishes spotless and clean! (As with any dishwashing detergent, do not use on real silver as tarnishing may occur).

We have also improved our automatic dishwashing detergent by adding an enzyme package as well as a naturally derived rinse agent and hard water treatment additive.

Directions for use: (1 Scoop = 2 oz.)
Fill one dishwasher cup for regular loads. Fill both cups for tougher problems. Load according to dishwasher manufacturer's directions. It is recommended to wash silver articles by hand. Make sure all items are dish-washer safe. For really tough jobs, like baked-on food, soak item for 30 minutes or more in sink full of hot water and 1 scoop of Household Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent. Safe for septic tanks. Store in cool dry place.

Ingredients: Sodium citrate, sodium carbonate, sodium percarbonate, surfactants, rinse agents, silicate.

You can purchase this dish detergent right now for $19.99 from Tropical Traditions! *normally $32.00*
Or you can enter to win one here!

Household Traditions (Tropical Traditions) has generously offered 1- 5 lb container of dish detergent to 1 lucky LWML follower!
