Dishwasher Detergent: Liquid, Powder, or Packs?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

What kind of dishwasher detergent do you like to use?  I like the idea of the packs, but they are more expensive, even with a deal, and they're kind of harder to use! The ones I have are in a wrapper I have to open.

I either use gel or packs.

 

I found a recipe for a homemade mixture that I am going to try when I run out this time.

I alternate between gel packs and homemade. I find using homemade for too long leaves the glasses cloudy....even with the vinegar rinse frown.gif I'm still working on tweaking the homemade version recipe though!

Not if you are my daughter.  She used them for MONTHS without KNOWING you are supposed to open them!!!  ROFL!!

 

I use liquid.  I MISS the gel packs SO much...but I just can't validate the expense.  :(

On the bright side, she didn't use regular dish soap!

I use an eco friendly, biodegradable powder I buy at Trader Joe's (much cheaper than Seventh Generation)

Hi, I'm new here, I use a liquid, green, non-toxic detergent. It's the best!
