I purchased this dish washing gel because I was at a different store other than my regular one. They did not have the regular tablets that I usually purchase so I bought these instead. Immediately I noticed a change in my dishes when removing them from the dishwasher. Pots and pans still had grease residue on them, anything plastic would come out with a white residue on them. I thought I was putting too much gel in the holder so I ran the dishwasher again and put a little bit less in the holder. The dishes still came out the same. The white reside was easily removed with a simple wipe from a towel but it was a hassle to have to go through and wipe every dish again and just completely wash the pots and pans all together. Often times the dishes wouldn't even look clean. They looked like they were just barely rinsed off and that's it. This product is not expensive at all but it is still not worth the few dollars I spent on it. I do not recommend this to anyone at all even if you think you can't afford anything else. You are better off washing by hand.
