Unscented Liquid Dish Soap Concentrate Multi-Packs
When I was a little girl, we would fill a sink with warm water and dish soap to wash our dishes. Somewhere along the way as I grew up, I started putting dish soap directly on the sponge instead. This soap does not work well to put directly in the sponge. However, I have great success if I mix it up with warm water in a pot or bin big enough that my dishes can be submerged. The dishes clean easily after sitting, even for ten seconds, in the warm soapy water. Once we figured that out, we have had no problems.
Not sure if this was because I wasn't able to get so much of the soap concentrate out of the pod that I wasn't left with enough, but the dish soap seemed diluted where I'd have to use quite a lot to get any amount of lather and keep adding more to the sponge. This means it really didn't last nearly as long as conventional dish soaps.
The first pod I received had leaked, so ETEE sent me a replacement, which also leaked. Then when trying to transfer the soap into a container it was a complete mess with so much of the soap gone to waste. The dish soap seemed to have separated in the tube with the more liquid part pouring out easier than the concentrated soap which just stuck to the insides of the pod. The pod had a crack in the middle where the dish soap would seep out as I tried to squeeze it into the container through one end. Also, some waxy bits of the pod ended up falling into the container I was filling too which didn't look nice to have floating around but also could clog my soap dispenser. Great idea, but needs improvement.
It is something to get used to, but is easy and doable. The diluted product seems to work as well as any other liquid at cleaning dishes.
The dish soap works great. My problem has been with getting the concentrate out of the wax pod. It doesn't squeeze out neatly like your picture indicates that it should. I end up breaking oped the pod and having a mess. Also, I noticed that there is still a lot of the soap concentrate stuck to the pod, so I felt like I had only about half of the soap! Ended up just breaking the pod up and putting that in a jar with water. Am I doing something wrong here?

How to Make Your Plastic-Free Dish Soap
Simply fill a dispenser or jar with 375 ml (12.5 oz) of water. Rip open your pod of concentrated dish soap over the jar and squeeze the soap into the water. Stir the mixture, cover with a lid or cap and give the dispenser a good shake. Let it sit for an hour before first use. Dispose the pod in the compost or garbage (rest assured it'll biodegrade in either). Squirt some soap into your sink of water or onto a dish cloth and clean those dishes like a pro. Rinse any soap from your dishes using hot water and for best results dry them with a clean cloth after you're done.

"Mine arrived in perfect shape. I used a few drops on a wet cloth to wash off lipstick on a glass. Wiped off easily. What I loved is unlike some of the leading dishsoaps I didn't need to rinse with a ton of water. Who want soap residues in their Pinot Grigio!" - Diane R
"We’ve been using the liquid soap now for a bit and this is what I think: Works REALLY WELL, like REALLY well: cleans up all the buttery/oily messes we’ve had so far without leaving any greasy residue; bubbles up nicely with the Swedish dish cloth/ luffa sponge (Also, I LOVE THIS SPONGE ITS AWESOME!!); Dispenses out of the spout well and doesn’t clog it up the way I was worried it would..." - Annie B
"I've gotten to use the soap and scrubby a few times now. I used to fill my sink with water and squirt a bunch of soap in. In an effort to use less water, I switched to a plastic scrubby brush that you fill with soap. I found that the head needed frequent replacing and that I wasted a lot of soap which leaked out between uses. The etee soap has been a perfect solution. I find that it works great and you really only need a small amount... I'm hoping not to buy any other dish soap." - Jessica P
