*cracks knuckles* Chemistry expert and former detergent chemist here, chiming in. Modulo some small semantic differences, you're 100% spot on. Functionally, there is zero difference in the formulations. Every powder dish detergent on the market comprises the same functional components, though the exact chemicals selected may vary. It's always some combination of detergent, anti-deposition agent, water conditioners, strong base, oxidizers, enzymes, buffers, "processing aids", and what I call "foo foo juice" - colors and fragrances. The Purpose section is annoyingly vague so I'm going to break down each of the categories and give their examples. These aren't strict categories, in fact many of these chemicals perform double or even triple duty. *Detergent/Surfactant* - Allows water to bind grease molecules by virtue of having two halves, hydrophilic (water loving) and hydrophobic (water hating or grease-binding). These can be basic/anionic (negative charge): sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS); neutral: isotridecanol ethoxylated, PEG C10. Acidic/cationic (positive) are uncommon in dish detergents but you may see them in rinse aids. Bonus fact: rinse aids are typically mild acids ( pH about 3) which helps dissolve calcium deposits and soap scum. Because of this, they have to use neutral or cationic surfactants. *Anti-deposition agent* - Once you dissolve the grease, you don't want it to deposit back onto the dishes. Cascade calls this "boosts shine" but it's basically film prevention. The line between detergent and anti-deposition agent is blurry, and many chemicals can fulfill both roles. Acrylic copolymers are the best example here, but the PEGs (polyethylene glycol) also help in this regard, as do any neutral detergents. They tend to be weak detergents on their own, but their big advantage is they don't create soap scum (calcium fatty acids, more on that later). *Water conditioners and chelators* - Hard water means calcium, iron, and other large positive ions in solution. Calcium reacts with anionic surfactants (aka soaps) to form insoluble scum. This both reduces cleaning power and makes extra goop that needs to be cleaned! Water conditioners exchange sodium for calcium, binding it so it doesn't form scum. This category includes polycarboxylates, citric acid, sodium phosphate (discontinued), EDTA, and our friend sodium acrylate/maleic/carboxylate copolymers again (yes it doubles as both anti-deposition and water conditioner. Synergy!). *Strong base* - Anionic detergents work best at a high pH (alkaline/basic). Alkali also saponifies grease, giving it a hydrophilic group and turning it into soap! Lye (sodium hydroxide), bleach (sodium hypochlorite), sodium percarbonate aka sodium carbonate peroxide aka "OxyClean", sodium silicate, and sodium phosphate are all strong bases. See all that sodium? They also help condition water as well! *Oxidizers* - These react with staining molecules such as tomato sauce, berries, tea, and coffee, as well as natural polymers like proteins (cheese) to break them apart. Sodium hypochlorite and percarbonate are oxidisers. "Transition metal catalyst" has a similar role, except instead of being consumed, it facilitates the bleaching action. *Enzymes* - Starch and protein when heated and hydrated form a natural glue of sorts. Anyone dealing with stuck-on cheese or rice knows what I'm talking about. Enzymes are natural molecules that break these polymers down so they unstick from surfaces. Amylase specifically digests amylose (starch) and Subtilisin (protease) breaks down protein. Pro-tip: any time in biology you see _whatever_-ase, that breaks down _whatever_. *Buffers* - prevent the base from being _too_ basic and etching glassware. I think this is what zinc carbonate is doing, but I'm not 100% sure. *Processing Aid* - Any time you see "processing aid" or "enables liquid processing" - that just means it's an inert bulk transport, because either the active ingredient is too viscous, or cakes easily, or whatever. Glycerin and Dipropylene glycol act as liquid solvents in those colorful liquid sections of the gel packs, since too much water would dissolve the pack. Sodium sulfate is just an inert powder.

Yes, I will try the cheapest in both the soap dispensers. Right now, I still have half a bucket of the fanciest most colorful I’m finishing up. So I do use the cheapest store brand for the prewash and the packs until I’m out of packs. I did get gel for this step, but will go back to powders for economy and ecology. Thank you for persisting. For laundry soap I now use detergent pressed into sheets and delivered in envelopes.

Earlier this year, we had to have our waste pipe snaked out because it was horribly clogged. Our plumber made a lot of recommendations to help keep it clear. But one of the biggest ones he had surprised me. He told me to always use gel dishwasher detergent. He told me he has seen way too many clogged pipes due to undissolved detergent sticking to the inside of the drain pipe and building up so much that it would seriously clog it up. But he never saw that problem as much with gel detergents. He also mentioned that the "eco" or "speed wash" cycles are the worst ones to use. They just end up dumping huge amounts of undissolved detergent into your drain. If you really want to use them, just load a tiny amount of detergent.

After watching your first dishwasher video I started filling the prewash cup and setting our portable dishwasher for normal instead of the quick wash. Oddly enough, I realized that this particular model does not use a prewash/main wash cycle for the normal setting. There is a 6 minute wash at the start but instead of draining and refilling before dispensing detergent it just dispenses right into the prewash mix. The quick wash on the other hand does do a prewash, drain, fill then dispenses cycle. At any rate, I enjoyed watching these videos and better understanding how to make the most of my dishwasher.

Hi Dudes Just to share with you my tip: ▶ I use 1/4 of "Sun Unilever" powder tab per wash since more than 2 years now, like you without special salt. Every month my local supermarket sells it for €5/100tabs; so it costs me ¢1/wash! 1box of tabs per year ▶ I use white vinagar instead of rinse aid : it is much more 100 times less expensive (¢51/L for vinegar, €5/0.75L). Moreover it is much more nature-friendly. Daily wash are done with "Eco Program": 45°C Once a week, I use the hotter program (60°C) in order to "wash" my dishwasher and take away grease residues. Once a month, I remove dirt from nozzles with a toothpick. Great Savings can be done easily !💶 Alex from Versailles, FRANCE 🤗

Your previous video on the subject has garnered the adoration of my 76-year-old mother, as she proudly reclaims 20-30 minutes a night by shoving dirty dishes directly into the dishwasher without allowing them anywhere near the sink. She even goes so far as to "challenge" the dishwasher by intentionally creating scenarios that put it at a disadvantage, just to see if she can make it falter. Thus far, the dishwasher always wins, and she's ecstatic. Thank you.

This video and your previous one have both been very cathartic as well as informative. My only wish is for a more snarky takedown on the question about mixing the pack and the pre-wash powder or gel. If the pack isn't doing its job and they need to add prewash, then why on earth are they paying more than double for something that doesn't work, and why would having to keep around 2 products instead of one be preferable? I don't think you went far enough in making that point.

Huh. I've only ever used the packs. In fact, I ran into the same issue with the little detergent door getting blocked by a plate, and ever since just dropped my single pack right into the tub and called it good. I've done this across multiple washers in multiple areas and never had an issue with things not getting clean unless (I assumed) something was particularly stuck on or blocked in some way, but that was only the odd scenario. Never knew it was all supposedly dissolving in the first 10 mins, and now I wonder if I should use one pack in the tub and one in the normal cubby like you recommend. My dishes all seem clean with just the pack thrown in??

So basically it’s possible to create a pod based dishwasher detergent pack that works just as well by creating cycles, but because of a combination of propaganda by detergent companies, brand deals with dishwasher companies, and human psychology, nobody needs to do research in order to make it work as well?

So after the last video I had bought powder detergent to put in the pre-wash compartment and it worked wonders for ensuring everything got cleaned. After this video I decided that as soon as the (16p per wash) dishwasher tablets ran out I would try just powder. Wow, I'm impressed, I went with the dishwasher recommended 21g in the main compartment and 4g in the pre-wash compartment and it works just as well as the expensive tablets for less than half the price (7.5p per wash). I've made a makeshift dosing cup to make life easier and plan on 3d printing something more fancy later. I am now looking into getting even cheaper powder (which people insist works well) which will bring the price down to 5.25p per wash, only 1/3 of the price of the more expensive tablets and it should last over a year. The only unfortunate thing I discovered is the complete lack of dishwasher powder options in the UK, everyone sells tablets, powders are rare and liquids even rarer.

I use two Finish Powerball tablets. I throw one in the dishwasher and put the second tablet in the soap dispenser. Until your video I thought the first soap cup the one with tiny holes in it was for the first wash cycle (or I guess you might call it Pre-wash) and the second closed cup was for the second cycle. When I used powder I filled up both cups. The only problem I have is if I have a tall item next to the dispenser cups the door doesn't open all the way and I keep finding an unused dishwasher tablet there. My mother used to wash (she called it rinsing) all the dishes before she loaded them into the dishwasher. I'm lazy and I hate washing dishwashing. So I don't wash or prerinse in the sink any dishes. I load everything directly into the dishwasher! No rinsing first. Stuck on stuff and all! It's a dishwasher! Why buy one if it doesn't wash dishes. And all my dishes come out clean. And I use the Normal wash setting. But warning: Get a dishwasher that has a easy to remove and clean filter. That filter stops things like plastic pieces or hard items like pits etc from going down the drain of dishwasher and entering the Garbage Disposal! Yes Dishwashers have a Garbage Disposal! They actually crush and cut up the tiny bits of stuff so it will go down the drain. Its a spinning blade that does the job and it should be on all dishwashers but might only be on the top of line models. Again, once a week I pull out the filter and rinse it off. And that to the video the thing about the filter. The model dishwashers you showed on your video does not have what I am talking about. My dishwasher is a Kenmore (its old now but is a Bosch knock off)

Hi there! This is the first video i saw from you and now I'm like 50 videos in haha.... I had to come back and comment. Salty European here, i didn't even know that powder dishwasher detergent was a thing but i checked my machine and holly bubbles it DOES have holes for a prewash! And it DOES have a prewash cycle every time i use it. Now actually finding powder detergent was an adventure and i can only find just 1 type of powder (from Finish) absolutely no other options. Now for results....i have been using the most expensive Finish capsules on the market since the low cost tablets i tried really weren't doing a good enough job. So, powder comes in and i fill the machine up with dirty pots and pans and dishes dirty with stuff that i know very well that it's not going to be washed perfectly because they have been sitting there on the counter for 3 days. I put just half of dose of powder in the slot and half measure powder in the prewash spot and turn it on with the program i usually use (90 minutes, 70 C). Well after 90 minutes i couldn't believe my eyes.....Absolutely perfectly washed. No spots no nothing. All surfaces perfect it didn't matter if it was plastic or stainless or Teflon. Actually it's the first time ever i don't see spots on plastic items. Even more mind blowing is the cost difference! At the cost of 18 capsules I was able to buy 2.5 kg of powder (the same premium brand). Because i am actually able to dose my detergent now and not use more than i need I'm probably going to use around 30 grams of it per wash? That means a bottle is good for 80 washes! 80!!! Instead of 18! All i can say is thank you for showing us this, it was incredibly enlightening. I love your content, please keep it up. And if you could do the same thing about washing machines for clothes that would be amazing. I also use capsules there and i have a sneaking suspicion that it's probably exactly the same issue.

Question: any thoughts on the intermittent wet dog smell my dishes get?? You remind me so much of my brother its comical. As someone who looks for every single possible place to save a few bucks i will be having a conversation with my wife about transitioning to powder.

44:40 seems like a good opportunity to introduce slightly cheaper than regular pods option from a competing brand that has a pre and mid wash smol and mid size pack

If never had a dishwasher but powder seems to be the best idea to me those predone tablets seem way overpriced. I use powder instead of gels in the washing machine

I still fill my bowl with water and a drop of soap, wash my silverware and hands, turn the water back on to then rinse everything off... The trick is only use as much water as you need to fill whatever is the biggest container you're cleaning, then clean everything else in it. A liter of warm suds water is usually all I need. _I also mainly wash laundry by hand in a bucket, then hang it to dry, a few pieces at a time._ I'm just old fashioned, which is ironic being the biggest tech nerd in my family. Dislike using phones and enjoy art, farming, sewing, cobbling, carpentry, and making homemade foods. But also researches everything cutting edge, from biotech, materials development, to information systems, gaming, and AI. I keep life simple and slow, but keep active and learning. Knowing how things work is a rule prerequisite, for me, in using them. However knowing how they work, I can emulate by hand, usually at a slight slower pace. I built and cut things by hand tooling for 12+ years before I bought even a power drill... I try to reuse almost every container or scrap of cardboard in something or other, even to the ire of my brother who would rather buy something new. Definitely the life story of the tortoise here, and apologies for continuing to type...
