Last night my hubby came home with some dishwasher detergent powder (upon my request) and once again, I felt the need to read the label. I have been experimenting with different green dishwashing powders but haven't been happy with the results....but when I read what is in the regular stuff...I can't do it! I'm taking it back to the store today. The warnings on the package are insane. Why would I want to wash my dishes in a product that should not be touched, inhaled, allowed to come in contact with skin or clothing, and can create harmful fumes if mixed with dishwashing liquid!! There is a good chance that could happen since I AM WASHING DISHES for goodness sakes!!!! Craziness!!!
My mom told me a little tip yesterday that I plan to try this afternoon with my green dishwashing detergent that I will buy today.....add vinegar to the rinse agent receptacle (I do not use rinse agents anymore b/c they are super toxic)..... she said this should help improve the performance of the natural dishwashing products.
At the end of the day, I would rather my forks looked spotty then sparkling with chemical soup all over them. YUCK. It's enough to make you sick. Really.
