low-phosphate and phosphate-free detergents may be keeping your dishes dirty

Jun 07 2011

I guess i’ll have to go check my detergent…

… low-phosphate and phosphate-free detergents just don’t work as well as the higher phosphate content detergents. They don’t rinse the grime and food away as well as the older detergents. Because the change was made suddenly and without much fanfare, owner first suspected that something was wrong with their dishwasher because (a) the dishes weren’t getting as clean, and (b) the dishwasher was malfunctioning in odd ways because the grime and food weren’t being rinsed away effectively.
