Automatic Dishwasher Cleaning Tips

Since the phosphate ban has been in effect we are getting more and more comments and complaints about poor cleaning in automatic dishwashers. I’ve cut and pasted a few frequently asked questions from the Cascade web site and also added my own comments and suggestions.

 Q: Why is Cascade taking phosphate out of your formula?

A: Cascade products will comply with all Local and State regulations that require the removal of phosphate by July 1, 2010. By this date, all Cascade automatic dishwashing products in the U.S. will be phosphate free.

 

Q: What does phosphate do?

A: Phosphate is the main ingredient in most automatic dishwashing detergents and serves many functions. For example, phosphate helps with dishwashing performance by facilitating food removal, removing the calcium that binds these types of foods together and reducing spotting and filming during the wash cycle. Phosphate also aids in grease removal, helps control water hardness, and suspends soils within the wash water so they are not redistributed onto plates.

automatic dishwasher oversudsing

If you have a dishwasher that is oversudsing, it is normally due to using the wrong type of detergent. If you mistakenly use a hand wash detergent it will create a huge amount of suds and pour out of the front door. If that happens, you can neutralize the suds by pouring olive oil directly onto the suds. Shut the door of the dishwasher and continue the cycle. The olive oil works like magic and breaks down the hand wash dish detergent and stop the unit from oversudsing.

Water Usage

Staggering Statistics

Did you know it takes 3600 gallons of water to produce a single cotton t-shirt and pair of jeans! And, as if that isn’t bad enough it also takes 2 pounds of pesticide to grow the cotton!!!

In the US, the typical person uses 80 – 100 gallons of water per day!

Less than 1% of the world’s water is fit for human consumption!

Dyeing traditional clothes requires between 7 and 75 gallons of water per pound of fabric! That equates to an annual usage of 2.4 TRILLION gallons of water for the amount of dyed materials the world produces!

Front load washers are much gentler on your clothes than the traditional top load agitator type machines. Consider the ecological impact as well as saving money on your electric and water bill, and extending the life of your clothes by switching out your current washer with a new high efficiency model.

You can actually fill out some forms and get a picture of your water usage footprint.
