How to choose the right dishwasher detergent

For many years, the dishwasher was a person or people who did the dishes. The first mechanical dishwasher was invented in 1850. It was a a wood machine that turned due to a handle and splashed the dishes with water. A woman invented the first "practical dishwasher" in 1893. Her name was Josephine Cochran. However, it was not until 1950 that the dishwasher, as it is known today, appeared. Choose the right dishwasher liquid for it today.

Powder

- Dishwasher powder is one of the oldest detergents for dishwashers. These powders work very well for cleaning glassware, removing the spots from them. One of the major brands is Cascade. - You can make your own dishwasher powder by mixing together a cup, each of Borax and washing soda, 1/2 cup of citric acid, and 1/2 cup of salt. Kosher is the best. - Put the lid on the container and shake it until the contents are mixed. - Pour white vinegar into the rinse-aid reservoir and add one tablespoon of powder detergent.

DIshwashing tablet

This form of detergent first appeared in Western Europe. This style of detergent is convenient for two reasons. Firstly, it already combines rinse-aid, salt and detergent. Secondly, the amounts are pre-measured for you. So, all that you have to do is to put the tablet in the dishwasher. Some of the tablets are wrapped while others have a wrapping that will dissolve in dishwater during the cycle. According to Healthy Cleaning 101, you may have to add an additional soap tablet if the water in your house is hard.

Gel

Gel is a newer formulation. The gel is designed in such a way so that it flows out slowly from the bottle when you dispense it. It is easier to control when pouring. It starts to work right away, thanks to its nearly liquid form and the fact that it dissolves so quickly. While the gel is gentler on the dishes than dishwasher powder, some report that it does not work as well. Bio Pac makes an earth-friendly version that contains aloe as well as tea tree oil. This dish detergent is gentle on the dishes. It Is also safe to use with septic systems.
