Do dishes and flatware come out of your dishwasher covered with food particles and greasy gunk?

Is your glassware coated with a nasty gray-white powdery scum? Are your utensils turning black? Have you been thinking it’s probably time to buy a new dishwasher? Save your money! Your dishwasher isn’t at fault—it’s your detergent.

The problem started back in 2008, when ill-informed environmentalists in the state of Washington convinced their legislature to ban phosphates in dishwasher detergents, believing—despite the weight of evidence to the contrary—the minuscule amount of phosphates in dishwasher detergents was the primary cause of pollution and other problems in the Spokane River.

Detergent manufacturers removed phosphates from their products in just the two Washington counties where the ban was imposed—knowing full well the new formula wouldn’t work. They assumed the law would soon be repealed and things could return to normal. But the law of unintended consequences soon changed things.

Furious because dishes were coming out of their dishwashers grimy and unsanitary, shoppers stocked up on cases of original formula detergents from stores across the border in Idaho, which had no phosphate ban.

Detergent-smuggling housewives made a rollicking good news story that was carried nationally by the media. In turn, publicity generated by the news reports served as an impetus to environmentalists elsewhere, who lobbied and pressured their own legislators. Sixteen states soon banned phosphates in dishwasher detergents—all to take effect on July 1, 2010. Not wanting to make different products for different states, manufacturers decided to remove phosphates from their formulas nationwide.

The reformulated detergents are expensive and don’t clean adequately. Now you don’t need to buy them!

David W. Cowles reveals simple and cost-effective solutions to this problem in his new whistle-blowing exposé, NO MORE GRIMY DISHES. This ebook will enable you to once again have clean dishes and sparkling glassware—and you’ll save money, too!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Preachy but has some great make-your-own-cleaner recipes 12. Juni 2012
Von MamaSylvia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I borrowed this book from another Kindler through the website. Cowles discusses the history of removing phosphates from commercial dishwasher detergent, blaming the legislation on environmental activitists erroneously holding phosphates responsible for water pollution. He also goes through a not-particularly-interesting recital of his correspondence with Proctor & Gamble, makers of Cascade. But then he offers a homemade dishwasher detergent recipe with phosphates, and several methods to get the yucky film off my dishwasher, and a paean to citric acid aka "sour salt," which I've had in my kitchen since I was a bread baker (it helps the dough).

I am not convinced that the phosphate issue is as simple as Cowles argues. But I had noticed that my dishes weren't getting clean, and learned about the removal of phosphates from dishwasher detergent, long before I heard of Cowles' book. The funny thing was that I was already using a phosphate-free detergent about half the time, as I have a septic tank and phosphates are not good for septic systems. So I alternated using a regular detergent with a "green" one. The recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent and the uses of citric acid make up for the preaching in the first part of the book, and I'm eager to try them (although I will probably still alternate phosphate and non-phosphate detergent to be kind to my septic system)!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sparkling dishes! 9. Juni 2012

I admit I got this book free figuring it would be a good read if nothing else. And it was. I enjoyed reading about the phosphate controversy and why the manufacturers have removed it from dishwasher detergent. However, then I bought the TSP and used it. My glasses absolutely sparkled. A few loads later I did notice (like another reviewer here) a white film on some of my dishes (seemed to be metal objects mainly). I was puzzled until I noticed that the inside of my dishwasher (stainless steel) had been coated with white residue which was actually starting to come off. Now that my stainless steel is uncoated stainless steel again I have not had any white residue on any of my dishes and I am ecstatic. I haven't made my own detergent yet because I need to use up my already purchased detergent but I have bought all of the ingredients and am ready to go. All I can say is - Thank you David!

5.0 von 5 Sternen So that's why! 6. Januar 2012
Von alaska - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The first half of this book answers why you might have recently noticed the change that the dishes are not getting clean in your dishwasher . Second half details how to fix it. Also has a make it yourself DW detergent that is cheaper and, according to Mr. Cowles, will clean the dirt/film that name brands don't.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank you 9. Juni 2012

I knew something was wrong with the dishwasher detergent since they removed the phosphates, however I did not know how to fix it. Our water is soft, so no white film but my stainless had gunk or rusty looking spots and had to be scrubbed by hand-- not the reason that I have a dishwasher!

I appreciated the background information as to why the change was made. I am glad that you described a 'fix' for the problem. Tomorrow I head to the store. Thank you, very helpful.

3.0 von 5 Sternen History of Dishwasher Soap 23. Mai 2012
Von cybergranny - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This should have been the title. Majority of the book was on the history of dishwasher soap changes and citric acid uses. I guess he needed to fill the pages up somehow. There was a good tip/recipe for your own dishwasher soap, thankfully.
