Rebel Green Super Deluxe Dish Soap

The goal: To find the next Mrs. Meyer’s.

The verdict: For similarly charming packaging​, an equally low price point,​and a cleaner slate of ingredients​​, we recommend the food-grade Super Deluxe Dish Soap ($5) from woman-owned company Rebel Green. It’s (entirely) sulfate-free, biodegradable, and endorsed by Sandeep Salter, the owner of stylish Brooklyn Heights home-goods shop Salter House, who stocks it between other status cleaning supplies, including a horsehair scrubber brush and a Japanese broom.

“This lifts grease, dried eggs, and whatever concoctions my kids conjure up in the name of science (or cooking),” says one Amazon reviewer of this sulfate-free detergent. “Furthermore, it’s not loaded with a ton of chemicals that are quite harmful. It’s nice that a little goes a long way. You don’t have to use a whole bottle of this stuff to clean your dishes, either.”
