Share

If you have recently bought a dishwasher, you may be wondering which product to use for each cycle.

However, there are several options available…

All-in-one tablets

For your dishwasher, you can choose to use tablets combining detergent, rinse aid and salt. This all-in-one solution is very practical because you don’t need to buy each product separately. Before each cycle, you just need to place the tablet inside the product dispenser.

All-in-one gel

As an alternative to tablets, all-in-one gel also combines detergent, rinse aid and salt. Contrary to tablets, you can dose out the amount of gel you want to use for each cycle. If you don’t have that many dishes to wash, you won’t have to use a full dose, which can help save some money.

All-in-one pods

For each cycle, you can also use all-in-one gel pods, including detergent, rinse aid and salt. Though this solution is very practical, you cannot dose out the quantity of gel you use depending on the number of dishes you want to wash.

Detergent, rinse aid and dishwasher salt

The fourth option is to separately buy detergent, rinse aid and salt. For the detergent, you can choose powder, liquid detergent or tablets. On the other hand, you should not pour traditional washing-up liquid, which can create overwhelming foam.

To be precise, rinse aid helps avoid dirt deposits on the dishes at the end of the cycle. Furthermore, it boosts drying. As for dishwasher salt, its purpose is to make the water less hard and eliminate minerals.

Which product to buy for your dishwasher? Know that not all products work as well to wash. To do right, you can change products every once in a while to compare performances.

Protecting the environment is probably important to you. If so, note that some products are more environmentally-friendly than others. To do right, look for products without phosphate, phosphonate, Polycarboxylates or chlorine bleach.
