    Cheaper price at Mitre 10

    Pros

    I brought two 80 tablet bags of Quantum Ultimate Lemon Sparkle Powerball dishwasher Tabs from Mitre Ten recently they cost just over $33.00 per bag which is considerably cheaper per Tab than at PaknSav and Countdown.
    Although they are not rated as high as the Finish Pro Tabs they do a good job and are considerably cheaper.

    Cons

    No apparent cons

    Recommend it?
