With some Earth friendly products you really have to make a tradeoff between greenness and effectiveness. Unfortunately, this is one of those products. I try to buy Earth friendly products as much as possible but it's tough to find truly effective ones. This is certainly not effective. At all. This does have a pleasant scent and the price is comparable to other Earth friendly brands but it just does not perform well. I cook a lot so I always have dishes to wash. This could not even get a nonstick brownie pan clean. There were about five crumbs on the pan and I used this thinking it could at least work on five crumbs. Unfortunately my expectations were a bit too high. This did get the crumbs off but it left the pan with an oily residue that wasn't even there before I washed the pan! It completely failed as dishwashing liquid and I was forced to rewash the pan (thankfully the first item I had washed with this new detergent) with my usual dish soap. This is just a huge waste of money and I definitely recommend that you not give it a try.
