If you think your dishwasher is broken and not washing dishes well. Do not panic! Perhaps you just did not start the dishwasher correctly. Let’s analyze this problem.
There are several types of chemistry (detergents). The most famous and oldest of them is, of course, powder, of which there are many varieties – hundreds and perhaps even thousands. The composition of such chemicals is approximately the same and the main thing is that the components of these detergents do not harm human health and cope with their task efficiently.
One of the advantages of the powder is that the user determines the amount that will be used in the process.
Conventional dishwashing detergent is quite aggressive in its composition and continues to wash even in cold water. Such means have a characteristic feature – at a high temperature, they are more “productive” and can damage the skin of the hands, but at low water temperatures they are destroyed (their chemical properties are destroyed).
Powder and tablets for washing are intended for use and “quality work” at temperatures from 35-40 degrees Celsius.
Tip: more detailed instructions for the use of a particular detergent you can always find on its packaging or on the official website of the manufacturer.
One of the main mistakes that occur most often is the incorrect loading of detergents.
Please note: universal tablets of any manufacturer are designed to load the dishwasher by about 50-60 percent. Therefore, it is very important not to overload the equipment with dishes, otherwise, it will negatively affect the quality of its washing.
How to choose a dishwashing detergent in the dishwasher
When choosing powder or tablets, it is not so much the manufacturer that matters (although this factor also plays an important role), but the place where you buy detergents.
To buy it is better to choose large retail chains of well-known brands, the probability of running into counterfeit or fake in them is much less than in small retail stores.
According to statistics, tablets are faked much more often than powders. This is due to the fact that tablets bring much more profit to manufacturers. And the more famous the company – the more expensive the pill. And it is much easier to fake it – you can take an ordinary powder and get a tablet product by pressing it. And as you understand, no one is interested in the quality of the sink in this case.
Any tablet can be of 2 types:
One type (2in1) includes:
– salt substitute.
Another option (3in1):
– salt substitute;
– rinse aid.
It simply does not make sense to buy products that contain something else. All other components that can be found in the products are just a marketing ploy of manufacturers aimed at increasing the price of their products at the same cost as their production.
When using bulk detergents, you will need to use a rinse aid, which is poured into a separate compartment. It is needed so that no drops of water remain on the dishes. And if water remains on your plates and pans, this indicates a lack of rinse aid or its poor quality. But the fact of its fake also cannot be ruled out, because there is nothing easier than to take a couple of drops of soap, dilute it with water and pour it into a beautiful and bright package.
Tip: if a white or iridescent coating remains on your dishes – the dose of rinse aid should be reduced. If water droplets remain – on the contrary, increase it.
