Mrs Martin’s Probiotic Automatic Dishwashing Liquid 5l


At last, an eco-friendly automatic dishwashing liquid that actually works!

Now you can release your dishwasher water into your septic tank with no fear that it will upset the balance of the system. Made from plant derived ingredients and indigenous microbes, this automatic dishwashing liquid removes stains, cuts grease and controls odours the intelligent way. Rinsing aid included.

  • As the indigenous microbes continue on their journey down the drain, they break down food rests and digest bacteria that cause bad odours.
  • While the microbes wash into rivers they continue to remove nasties such as nitrates, nitrites and ammonia the natural way.
  • Everything else in this bottle is non-toxic and degrades within 28 days. Even the colourant and fragrance are hypo-allergenic and natural so that you can rest assured you are doing no harm. Neither to yourself nor to the environment.

You can expect to get 125 or more washes from this bottle. Colour changes may occur due to variance in the colour of orange oil.

I will NEVER go back!

Once I became aware of the toxic chemicals left behind on my dishes when using the dishwashing liquid I grew up with, I started looking for alternatives. Kissed a few frogs in the process, but I am so glad I found Mrs Martins!
My greywater system has never been this fresh!

I really love the “wosh” of fragrance I get when I open the dishwasher after the wash cycle .

Jerry Legrand
The best product to use

The best product to use in a septic tank environment.

Yes! It makes so much sense to work with your own environment rather than against it! Thanks Jerry.

Its a little different. I

Its a little different. I thought I needed more soap than with the conventional one... but I misunderstood it a little. It is perfectly competent, just gentler. Gentler on my skin too.

Yes, it does require a bit of a mind shift to see less foam, Joanne. Thanks for an honest review.

Kate W.
Lives up to promises

Great news, Kate! We are so glad you like the hand wash. Yes, it is so gentle on the hands that it is approved by the Allergy Foundation of South Africa!
