I have read that dry dishwashing powder can get bad if it is old, so I only buy two boxes at a time. Perhaps the reviewers who've had problems are using old product. I think it absorbs moisture when stored under your sink, and may then clump in in your DW.
I use vinegar in my rinse-aid container or Liquid Jet Dry.
Look out for price fluctuations as it can vary from time to time...I wouldn't pay more than about $5-$6/75 oz. box.
UPDATE: Having used this product now for over 7 years, I can tell you that depending on the quality of your dishwasher, the soap performance may vary. Since this doesn't have the abrasive chemicals like regular brands, if you have a cheap $200 dishwasher, it may not perform as well. I've noticed improvement as we upgraded our dishwashers. I also use it in the pre-wash/rinse cycle & have seen better results.
We recently moved, and we have hard water at our new house. I followed the instructions on the box for hard water, including using a rinse aid, but it still left white streaks and hard water stains on all my glassware.
Overall, I found Seventh Generation Dishwasher Powder to be an okay/below average cleaner, and don't recommend it to anyone with even semi-hard water. I now use Ecover dishwasher tabs(they clean ALL the food off my dishes, AND leave them with that beautiful sparkle). To those of you who've had a bad experience with this dishwasher powder, I urge you to try at least one more eco-friendly dishwashing powder before switching back to a traditional one. These products vary in their effectiveness much like traditional ones, and this one just happens to be on the lower end of the spectrum.
Hopefully they'll do something about how they pack the very heavy shipping box. The eight boxes of detergent were packed inside a simple cardboard box with no padding, so when my shipment arrived, powder was spilling out of one damaged corner of it, and when I opened it carefully I found that TWO of my eight detergent boxes had been smashed open and powder was spilling out of them. One of the two boxes is torn beyond usability. I'll have to put the powder in something else, now, and I don't have any container that is large enough and reliable enough for the job, so I'll probably have to go out and buy one.
ALSO, don't be fooled by the dotted line printed around the sides of the shipping box with arrows pointing to it on all four sides and the words "Open here to display." Do NOT open this end unless you're working in a supermarket; it's meant to allow you to cut off the bottom of the shipping box and lift it off the detergent boxes so that they will be standing upright. They are NOT "this end up" arrows; your boxes will be upside-down and powder will spill out of the little metal spouts as you remove them. The "this end up" label is ONLY printed on the top of the shipping box and is therefore easy to miss.
It's obvious my shipment was dropped, tossed, or otherwise handled roughly. Any person who is familiar with shipping in the U.S. knows that this is a possibility. Printing "do not drop" on a box does nothing to prevent it from being dropped. Until this is handled, buyer beware.
Great product, though.
