rethink dishwasher use (energy and water stewardship), and experiment with no soap or no detergent. A few seconds with grandmas cotton dishie scubbing could be a tiny moment toward saving a planet. I was surprised how much cleaner more efficient and conservative to soap scrub dishes in sink with ecosensible liquid soap, then use dishwasher for rinse and heat sanitize when doing canning jars. this way, no dishwasher detergent (and all those other weird chemicals to make glasses sparkle etc) used make all dishwater water even lighter grey than sink water.

Oasis makes an all-purpose cleaner that works well in the kitchen sink. Dr. Bronners is another option, but I don’t think it works quite as well for dishes.
I don’t know of any brands of dishwasher detergent that is good for plants, they tend to have higher salt content and boron.
