Use Less Dishwasher Detergent in Soft Water Areas

I had my dish washer repaired and I got a tip from repairman. If you are in an area like Memphis, which has soft water, you need use only a fraction of the amount of dish washer detergent recommended. Using more only clogs up the machine. In a hard water area, use amount recommended by manufacturer. Save some money and make your dishwasher last longer.

It was driven home to me the amount of detergent and money I have wasted over the years when I discovered the little individual packets of dw detergent made by Cascade and electrosol. A mere fraction of what the box instructions on other brands tell you to use. I have never filled both soap cups. I figure one good wash with lots of hot rinsing will do the job since I always remove all food particles from the dishes before putting them in the machine.
