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.
