In my machine, I stopped using liquid because it formed something that
looked like hard water scale on the element that would flake off and
block the water jets (only it isn't hard water scale as it doesn't
dissolve in acids).
All dishwasher detergents became less effective about 18 months ago
when they had to remove the phosphates. Often this is unnoticed if
you use tablets as for most washes there is way more detergent than
is needed, but if you more accurately dose liquid or powder according
to the washing load and fat, then this was more obvious as more
detergent was needed.

either that's changed or I've failed to notice it any more.
Part numbers SA01339 (5kg) and SA01340 (10kg).
As it happens, I ordered some about two hours ago, and I had a struggle
finding it (again). The magic keyword is 'dishwashing'.
Well, half the problem is the way it's packed (or not). Order it
separately to anything else.

I have always been a fan of Cascade Platinum Actionpacs. Just to compare, b
ought some Finish powder recently and it keeps clumping, which means that o
ur dishes were coming out dirty and needing rewashing pretty much every tim

r own research by reading reviews from https://www.theolive.com/reviews/bes

They're not exactly the latest in technology, there's no reason they
shouldn't all be the same.
But I have found that washing machine detergent is crap if you buy the
cheaper supermarket stuff. And the cheaper soft rinse is neither soft or
The obvious reason is that some ingredients are cheaper
than others. And some do more R&D than others too.
That one that left a haze on glassware after a number
of washed did eventually get their act into gear and
reformulated theirs and fixed that problem. And sent
me a box of the new ones unsolicited when I had
claimed a refund on the earlier dud formulation.
So why isnt that just as true of dishwasher detergent ?
In fact we have had washing machines for a lot
longer that dishwashers, so your line about how
long they have been making them for can't fly.
Don't use any rinse in either the washing machine or the dishwasher.
And I don't want my clothes to smell of anything.
Same with what I use in the shower, I use Pears Transparent
because it doesn't leave me stinking of some perfume.
They havent even done that with washing machine
detergent and washing machines have been around
for a lot longer than dishwashers.
In spades with what is used in the bath or shower.
Must be some or they wouldn't bother doing it.
Nope, waste of money. I use the cheapest Logix or
Finish tabs I can find on offer. Currently mostly Logix
since we have a new Aldi since the start of last year
and those work out cheaper than the best Finish
discount offers here.
Not when it's fresh sweat it doesn't. But give the skin bacteria under
your armpit a chance to have a go at it, and then it niffs.
Bit like fresh pee, which is sterile when it exits the body (unless you
have a bladder infection). Given time in the loo bowl and bacteria from
the air working on it, and that then pongs of ammonia.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an
Nope, just doesn't stink. When I go out for a walk for exercise
in summer when it isnt possible to get home before its over
25C, my T shirt is noticeably sweaty, but it doesn't stink at all.
And I do notice it when visitors show up after having a shower at
their place, notice the stink from the soap or body wash they use.
