How do I soften old, clumped together powdered dishwashing detergent?
By Deborah from Louisville, KY
Doesn't work; brown sugar gets moisture from bread. Don't want moisture in dish detergent; different chemistry. Moisture is what made it hard to begin with. I think hammering it in a plastic bag might be the best solution.

I have a 60 oz. brick of Cascade. Is there any hope of saving this clumpy mess?
It is time consuming, but you can grate off the amount you need.
If you have a blender or food processor you no longer use, or use to make paper, you could break up chunks with a hammer (double bag it) and then grind it in the blender/processor.
It is expensive stuff, so you may want to try this...at least the hammer method (carefully).
