    the funniest part is I was housesitting my parents house for two weeks last year when this went to effect and I forgot about it. I thought I broke their dishwasher because of the residue the new soap leaves. I called my mom to apologize thinking I broke it after I washed the dishes three times. I felt like an idiot afterwords.
    If you use the new eco crap use liquid not powder.

    I keep warning people that environmentalism by force will have unintended consequences, though this isn't what I predicted. :razz:

    They just buy/steal real pipes here somehow ... smoke shops still sell that crap ... but meh. They are discovering a huge threat in these lightbulbs and the "low flow" plumbing is actually causing more water usage ... it's funny in an ironic sort of way.

    That's pretty funny. I just gave up on using Greenworks liquid dish soap cause it didn't get anything clean and i had to wash everything at least twice, too.

    I went back to using Dawn... at least $1 went to animals. (Our bottle had a picture of a very cute baby seal). :lol:

    That's what I don't get, the "green" companies are really not doing anything for the environment, but those who don't get the label from the nuts are ... by choice!

    see... that's the kind of thing you post that *I* don't get. You can be responsible toward the environment without being a "nut"....

    as for the rest, i think the product is better for the environment, but people don't want to trade what THEY are used to in exchange... myself included.
