A comparison of dishwasher detergents
Dishwasher detergent in the form of tablets, powders or liquid form? What should you really choose, and what is best from an environmental aspect? Here you will find out which alternative is the best in terms of cost, efficiency and impact on the climate.
Powdered dishwasher detergent:
This type of dishwasher detergent can be beneficial as it is discount and very effective against hard water or water that contains a lot of minerals. It is also easier to dose correctly as you can decide the amount yourself depending on how much disk you have. This is probably the biggest advantage, that you can fill the machine exactly as you want and then be able to dose correctly with the powder, which becomes cheaper for you and is better for the environment.
According to a source you have to combine salt and rinse aid with the powder to achieve a brilliant result on the counter, which can be a disadvantage compared to the other two alternatives where you do not have to add anything to get a good result. However, the positive thing about the powdered dishwasher detergent is that it often comes in a paper package that can be recycled.
The advantage of the tablets is that they are already in a good size. You do not have to stand and measure your dishwasher detergent and can only put the tablet in the machine on direct. They are also very easy to store in your home and you avoid spilling anything, which is the risk with liquid or powdered dishwasher detergent.
The disadvantage of dishwasher tablets is that they are a bit more expensive but many consider them to be the most effective compared to the powder or liquid. Dishwasher tablets can be a problem to use if, for example, you want to run one half full machine. The tablets are designed for full machines in order for the tablet to reach its full capacity, where it can be problematic to run a half-full machine with a full dosage (ie a tablet) where there is a risk that funds may remain on the counter afterwards. On the other hand, it is always better to drive as full a machine as possible from an environmental aspect so that we are not really able to drive half a machine as an obstacle.
We offer Dishwasher tablets in perfect dose for a machine and which also has no plastic cover. The tablets also come in a recyclable paper package. The ingredients in the tablets are also 100% biodegradable. We think it is important to always have dishwasher tablets at home and therefore you can now also subscribe on these, so you never have to stand empty-handed without tablets when you run your dishwasher.
Liquid dishwasher detergent:
According to a source, the liquid dishwasher detergent can even be dangerous to the machine as it can affect the functions of the dishwasher. When it comes to results, liquid dishwasher detergent is not always the best, and also often contains a high dose of surfactants which can be dangerous for, among other things, aquatic organisms. It should apparently also be difficult to find a liquid dishwasher detergent that does not leave marks if you run a machine where you have hard water. Another disadvantage of the liquid dishwasher detergent is that it comes in a plastic package, which means that there will be another product that will end up in the dump.
