The BEST ones that I will only use are the Woolworths shine pro pods! 18pk I think $4.50, little blue pods, brought them on a tight week (I used to buy whatever bulk pack was on special fairy, finish, etc)

In the different dishwasher models I have owned they clean the best, glasses and plastic are actually spot free and dry! Bonus is the price

Saves water to use the dishwasher - fill and wash every night. I get to relax and wake up to a clean kitchen.. even on a tight week I love to have one part of my life a little simpler! If I hand wash it's 2-3 times a day

I use fairy. I like the smell, they clean everything and they are worth the higher price tag in my book.

I use the Aldi ones and they work great every time, much better than finish. Choice has a diswasher detergent review and compare that is useful - Aldi is right up there on the list but the cheapest cost per tablet of the top ones.

Thanks for that. I have all the ingredients on hand so I'll give it a go. The article didn't say how many tablets it makes

Most big brands will only recommend finish. I like finish quantum but also the fairy brand work well. We used earths choice in our last dishwasher and it essentially ruined it because they didn’t break down fats and oils and it just got irreparably clogged.
