    The best

    Pros

    By far the best clean of all products I've tested, including Finish.

    Great at cleaning the dishwasher is it cleans your dishes.

    Helps to remove that stale dishwasher smell that builds up when using other dishwasher tablets.

    Cons

    Pleasant but strong perfume smell that stays with plastic items, so it's not a product I would use every time, all the time.

    I think that consistent use wears crockery out quicker than other products.

    Recommend it?

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    Pros

    This is the only dishwashing product that removes tannin from cups. Every time. Find this by far the superior product but try and buy when on special.
    No detergent smell
