I bought this item sadly based on great reviews...and well, I cannot believe these reviews & wonder if these people have dark colored dishes or what...mine are white & you can see every little thing on them.
After the 1st load, I thought I must have forgotten to add detergent, so I added it again & ran the whole wash again. Then....when they came out dirty again, I thought I overloaded it. I took out half the dishes & ran it again while I hand washed the half I removed (mind you, they were already rinsed before loading initially). I then hand washed my dishes for several days waiting for the weekend for hubby to "fix" my broken washer...since the 1/2 load with detergent was still dirty when that got done running. Then it dawned on me that I just switched dish soap. I went out & bought my old trusty Cascade, loaded it up & viola - clean dishes.
I thought...okay, maybe the stuff got baked on when it ran so many times & maybe I really didn't put soap initially, I mean, all 5 star reviews...how can it be so bad for me & great for others??? It just doesn't seem possible that anyone would say 5 stars when I had such horrible results. So I tried a load ONE more time just to be sure.
SAME performance. So unless I got the only bum bottle out there, this stuff is garbage. I could care less how cheap something is if it doesn't work.
I have a great dishwasher, less than 2 yrs old & it can handle anything...literally. I generally prerinse everything, but I never have *needed* to. It is rare I've ever pulled out anything with any mark or spot at all left on it. Nearly every single dish, utensil & cup on these Palmolive ECO loads was dirty. It didn't even remove the small coffee spots where a few drips of coffee had dried in the bottom of the cup. Every single coffee cup was dirty, even my ice cream scoop that had been rinsed & had a white haze with a defined ring left in the scoop bowl. Sad sad sad. Worst cleaning product I've ever bought, hands down. I got nothing against Palmolive as a brand on the whole & have used it before with no problems, but this particular soap is the worst I've ever used.
I bought this product not for the price, but reviews. I was seeking a more eco friendly dish detergent that is effective. It's not at all eco friendly when I run my dishwasher 3 times & then still have to follow up by hand washing everything, again, in ANOTHER detergent & obviously, at that point, safe to say, it also doesn't meet the criteria of being effective.
