Dishwasher detergents include powder, liquid gel or tablet formulations, and sometimes it can be hard to know which ones best for you. Tablets are certainly the most popular amongst users due to convenience and reliability, whilst gels are more water-based and therefore friendlier towards tableware and delicate dishes or glasses. Powder dishwashing detergents are great for places with hard water. If you currently live or work in an area where there’s a hard water supply, you’ll know how it causes limescale issues, and may give a streaky or cloudy appearance to glasses. A powdered dishwasher detergent will allow you to choose the amount of detergent you need to improve the dishwashing results. Due to having less packaging then the other dishwashing detergents, a powder detergent is also more environmentally friendly with less packaging to dispose of then any cleaning solution at Pattersons Cleaning Supplies will do the job.
