Seventh Generation Soap

Does anyone use Seventh Generation or Meyers Dish Washing soap for window cleaning? If so, do you like it? Does the squeegee glide and does it leave any residue?

7th Generation!!!

How does it compare to the 6th generation?

Doesn’t anyone make their own soap anymore? If it burns off the first 2 layers of skin, it should work pretty good on windows.

I was just thinking if anyone would use Meyers. That’s what I use to wash dishes if no one knows. I’ll test it out on Monday

We use the spray window cleaning 7 generation product for a handful of customers who are allergic to SprayWay perfumes or have issues with anything in our normal WC mix. It actually works surprisingly well.

Here is the Seventh Gen ingredients list vs Ecover & Meyers- Anyone see something in any of these that you would not want to use on windows?
(Ecover certainly seems to have less packed in there)

[B]Seventh Generation Dishwashing Liquid[/B]
Dish Liquid - Free & Clear (and fragrances)
Ingredients: Water, sodium lauryl sulfate (plant-derived cleaning agent), glycerin (plant-derived foam stabilizer), lauramine oxide (plant-based cleaning agent), caprylyl/myristyl glucoside (plant-derived cleaning agent), magnesium chloride (mineral-based viscosity modifier), citric acid (plant-derived water softener), benzisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone (synthetic preservatives).

[B]Ecover Dishwashing Liquid[/B]
Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, lauryl/myristyl glucoside, ethanol, sodium chloride, glycerin, sodium citrate, citric acid,

[B]Meyers Dishwashing Liquid[/B]
Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Lauryl Glucoside, Lauramine Oxide, Glycerin (Household Cleaners), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel oil, Abies Alba (Fir) Leaf oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) oil, Quillaja Saponaria (Soap) Bark Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Polysorbate 20, Disodium Hydroxyethyliminodiacetate, Citric Acid, PEG-5 Cocoate, Methylisothiazolinone, Benzisothiazolinone

using ecover for 4 years now with perfect results and don’t see need to even try any other soap

So my 2 cents. All of these seem to contain sodium lauryl sulfate, if you really want to use something for those clients with alergies (I have a few) try buying straight sodium lauryl sulfate from the feed store. I’ve only used it a few times but it’s basically the same thing without the extras. SLS seems to be the base ingredient in almost every soap and shampoo on the market.

I have used all three
Meyers was terrible!!!
Seven gen just didn’t feel right and didn’t leave a quality. ( for me ) finish

Ecover ( with out glycerine) was by far the best hands down.
Now, look at each ingredients list,
Which one had the least ingredients in it???
(I’ll let youse figger that out. :slight_smile: )
I am a big advocate of useing as naked of solution as possible.
And the less ingredients , the less chance of allergic reaction.
Or one could ASK a hypoallergenic person what soap they use to clean their pots and dishes.
But I guess it would suck if they said they only use paper plates…
Just my 2 c

Can you still find Ecover without the Glycerine? I’m striking out online…

Call the Wcr store
Last heard they had some…

Yeah I’ve used seventh gen and hated it. Turned the water a whitish color.

Maybe the oxidation from the frames turned it white…

You don’t think I thought of that Shawnathon Taylor Thomas?

We must be the oddballs over here because we just use gg4??

Naaa you use what works. I use dawn. Have used it for a long time. Sometimes you just want to see what’s out there.

I’ve been using Biokleen for a couple of years now. Seems to work well with no residue and good glide. I don’t use much, though, and I use high ph water - 11.5 ph, so the water already has a little slip without soap.

We used biokleen for a bottle till We found the original ecover.
But the glycerine in biokleen was a issue ( for US that is)
No such thing as a " no residue " additive when using a squeegee.
LOW residue, yes.
NO residue, no.
