Eco-responsible Dishwasher Soap from Grab Green is Squeaky Clean

 


Trying to keep your dishes clean and keeping green at the same time is very challenging, especially in drought stricken California. If you rinse the dishes beforehand, or scrub them individually, you risk using a lot of water. If you use a very effective detergent, then you risk introducing microbeads or some other form of environmental weapon into the ecosystem. Fortunately, we recently discovered Grab Green detergent pods. They are natural, convenient, and pre-measured in encapsulated pods. You simply place the pods one at a time in your dishwasher, and then run the washing cycle.

This particular product is interesting for three reasons. First they can be scented, for example with thyme and fig leaf aroma. This means the bag itself smells pleasant, and your dishwasher also might smell just as pleasant. Second, the ingredients that they use are selected specifically for effectiveness as well as for minimum environmental impact. The third reason is that it works. It works very well. It works surprisingly well.

We ran regular dirty dishes through two different dishwasher batches. We put one pod in each to see how they would perform. The dishes came out spotless both times. We were quite surprised. Not only did they come out spotless, they also came out a bit shiny and silky to the touch. We can’t remember the last time clean dishes came out shiny and with a brand-new finish on them.

 



Curious? Here are a few more interesting details:

  • Cleans greasy messes and tricky stains like red wine — all with environmentally friendly, natural ingredients

  • Comes in simple premeasured pods —just toss one in, switch your dishwasher on, and let our powerful pods do the work

  • Rinses completely — no more rinsing bowls and drinking glasses by hand (our detergent pods scored 4.8/5 for spotting and 4.6/5 for filming in lab tests!)

  • Gentle and safe for all your family’s dishes, including dishwasher-safe utensils, dishes, pots and pans, and enamel

  • Effective in hard or soft water — eliminates mineral buildup for truly clean, spot-free dishes

  • Non-toxic, with no dyes, chlorine, or phosphates

  • Free of phosphates, dyes & chlorine

  • Safe. Hypoallergenic. Not tested on animals.

  • Formulated for standard and European machines

Billabong Collaboration With Andy Warhol: Warhol Surf

Billabong has released Warhol Surf, an exclusive apparel and accessory collaboration with one of the world’s most iconic artists, Andy Warhol. The collaboration comes through Billabong LAB, a division of the company that supports artists, musicians, designers, photographers and surf icons, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, a non-profit organization recognized as one of the leading funders of contemporary art in the United States.

Warhol once said “I came out of the womb on a surfboard.” Warhol Surf showcases Andy Warhol’s little-known fascination with surf culture and is rooted in a mutual desire to challenge convention – a driving force found in both Warhol’s work and Billabong’s product innovation. The collaboration comes as a natural evolution of Billabong’s rich history in partnering with the most influential artists, including Bob Marley and Metallica.

“Warhol’s rebellious spirit and attraction to non-conformists led him to Southern California in 1968 where he spent two weeks filming surfers as part of his underground film, San Diego Surf. The Foundation is proud to collaborate with Billabong to celebrate individuals who refuse to be defined by convention,” says Michael Dayton Hermann, The Andy Warhol Foundation’s Director of Licensing.

“Andy’s dedication to progressing art and his love for the surf culture became a powerful connection to our brand and inspired us to create this collection,” says Billabong’s Global Brand President, Shannan North. “To see Warhol’s iconic art come to life on our silhouettes is an important and celebrated moment in our brand history.”

Warhol Surf is available globally at select specialty retailers and online at www.billabong.com. The collection features a range of surf-inspired products for men and women including boardshorts, swimwear, tops, tees and accessories, born as a result of combining Andy Warhol’s iconic art with Billabong founder Gordon Merchant’s original designs and signature silhouettes.
