There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a fresh load of sparkling clean crockery and utensils emerging from a dishwasher. We all know how convenient a dishwasher can be, but are we treating it the right way? Afterall, it is a significant investment. This is why we need to ensure that we maintain it well by using specially formulated detergents designed especially for them. Unfortunately, like many people, we also made the blunder of trying out regular detergents in our dishwasher as a cost-effective method. But we noticed that it was a terrible idea as it created a lot of foamy suds that spilled out of the dishwasher resulting in a huge mess. We were horrified to see that the regular detergent left residue on the utensils and in the interiors of our dishwasher, which could have eventually resulted in damage to the appliance.
After a lot of trial and error, we have understood the importance of selecting the right detergent for our dishwasher. We learned it the hard way and we don’t want you to repeat the same mistakes that we made. This is why we have curated a list of tips that will help you choose the best dishwasher detergent and make your job easier.
1. Look for Detergents That are Meant Exclusively for Dishwashers
Using regular detergents in a dishwasher not only generates foamy suds, but can also damage to the machine, which may result in repairs and even replacement. We have seen that even precious tableware, especially fragile and high sheen items such as glasses and crystal ware can get permanently damaged and stained by low-quality detergents. This why we opted for Vim Matic Dishwash All In One Tablets, that are compatible with all kinds of dishwashers.
2. Use a Product That Already Contains Rinse Aid
As an owner of a dishwasher, we all are bound to come across the term rinse aid. Rinse aid prevents spotting on dishes and speeds up the drying process. However, instead of buying a bottle of rinse aid separately, we suggest you use Vim Matic Dishwash All In One Tablets as we did. This product already has the benefits of a rinse aid included in it, making it the perfect all-in-one solution. It offers superior washing and renders squeaky clean dishes, free of spots and watermarks, after each wash!
3. Pick a Dishwasher Detergent with Added Salt
Are you tired of seeing your dishes covered with spots and watermarks after washing them in the dishwasher? We have seen that in most cases, hard water is the likely culprit resulting in marks and causing the detergent to perform less effectively. This is why a dishwasher salt is needed as it softens water, prevents minerals from depositing in the dishwasher, and will render your dishes spot-free. You would be surprised to know that Vim Matic Dishwash All In One Tablets already have salt in them in addition to the rinse aid. Thus, along with giving us spotlessly clean dishes, it also proves to be a budget-friendly option for us as we do not need to invest in three separate products. Instead, we now have a single product to address all our dish cleaning needs.
4. Get a Detergent That is Fit for Indian Cooking
With regular use, we noticed that Vim Matic Dishwash All In One Tablets were able to get rid of the toughest of stains like that of turmeric, masala, grease, which are all characteristic of Indian cooking. Washing dishes, whether they were glass, steel or ceramic ones, seemed effortless with this product as we didn’t even have to do the additional step of pre-soaking the dirty dishes. All we had to do was load the dishes, add the detergent and we were good to go!
These tips are going to aid you in your endeavour of choosing the right detergent for your dishwasher.
