Works for Me Wednesday -- Electrosol tabs

When the theme for today's Works for Me Wednesday was announced as Kitchen Tips I was certain I would sit back and skip posting and read everyone else's to get some ideas. I am not the best at keeping my kitchen organized and I am definitely not the best at cooking in my kitchen so I figured I had no tips to share. Then I realized that I do know how to do one thing...use my dishwasher (I am not one for dishpan hands...or manual labor) and that lead me to my favorite dishwasher detergent, Electrosol Tablets.

I have used the powdered dishwasher soap in the past and I never knew quite how much to use. I would typically use too much as it would come out faster than I was prepared for and then my dishes were covered in soapy scum from too much detergent and I would have to run the dishwasher again. My dishwasher is also in the antique category and sometimes the soap dispenser would not open and work if too much powder was put in.

Then the lovely tablets were invented. I purchased the Electrosol tablets and I have never looked back. I just open a tablet and put it in my detergent holder, close it up and run the washer. I don't have to measure the powder or hope the soap dispenser opens and cleans my dishes.

I like both Electrosol and Cascade tablets. Mostly because you know you're getting your money's worth. With the powder or liquid...there's always that bit left in the bottom that goes to waste! When they go on sale, I gather up my coupons and stock up. I just love things that make life easier!
