I asked the primary dish-washer (my son) to leave me dishes for this BB.  Ahem, waaaayyyy too many.  
However, we will have plenty of used dishwater to flush with.  It just rained so I'd be drowning
plants at this point.  
I am washing the dishes in a large stainless steel pot then pouring the water into a 5 gallon bucket
to demonstrate how much water has been used.

Dish water accumulated again this afternoon and evening.  It flushed easily.

Staff note :

Staff note: The link to the detergent is not readily clear if the product is readily biodegradable but does list the ingredients. A nice staff member when through the entire list to make sure all the ingredients meat the BBs standards for biodegradability.

Addendum to previous submission: (sorry, quite late here…)

The photo of the dish water…

And I just learned how to edit my post - so the bb request is updated, but I cant figure how to delete this one.  Sorry for the confusion.

Here is the link to my new soap

https://www.earthwise.co.nz/products/dish/liquid/dish-liquid-lemon-aloe-vera.html/%7B%7Burl_key%7D%7D/%7B%7Bproduct_sku%7D%7D.html

The dishwater which was just under 10l, was topped up to 12l (3 gal = 11.3l) from the saved kids bath water (no soap used in the bath)

Sorry about the previous soap - we don’t have many options in my community and this was the only other supposedly eco soap in our shop. I just hope I havnt wasted your time on this one either.

Feel free to delete previous post if it interferes with the girbot.

I watered my raised garden bed with my dish water. I used seventh generation dish soap and love it!
