This may not be the right forum to post in but the only one I can. However I was wondering on what recommondation you guys/gals have as to which detergent is the best, not so much bang for buck but best overall. I personally perfer Cascade with the lemon and that seems to do an A- job on most things. I have tried the packs but with not much success, (packet not dissolving all the way). Since then I have cleaned out water heater and adjusted temp and I am getting alot hotter water than before, was told by appliance tech water had to be 130 to dissolve packet. Any thoughts or suggestions for better performance.

BTW I have always heard powder is much better than liquid for dishwashers and washing machines, any truth?

Electrasol Powder is all everyone should use in my opinion, do not use liquids or gels or packets...

Another vote for Electrasol powder and Jet-Dry rinse-aid.

the cascade with lemons on the box has the highest phosphate content i have found it is what i recommend to my customers. we have really hard water here so the phosphates help with that. i also recommend a product called lemi-shine for those customers without a water softener....this stuff works miracles haha
