I like using natural dishwasher detergent, but sometimes these stay stuck in the soap compartment and I need to run the dishwasher again.
They are unscented and work well - the reason why I buy these. The packs are big, but I have been able to squish them down by pressing the door of the detergent compartment on them.
The detergent itself seems to work well enough, but they pack it in gel packs that don't fit in the dishwasher's detergent compartment. Major oversight on the part of the manufacturer. I guess they're just not very familiar with dishwashers. The solution is to hold the pack by one end and run the other end under the tap for a second, which starts to dissolve the gel wrap. Then the pack will burst and flatten when you close the detergent compartment door. It works, but it's silly to have to do that, and a lot of people won't think of it.
We have a brand new dishwasher and were using another brand "seventh generation" dishwasher cubes and they worked great. I bought the method ones because it gets good reviews and it was on sale. It left alot of white spots on my plastic containers. Don't think I'll buy these again.
I love this detergent! I wash baby bottles and things in my dishwasher so I love using something natural and fragrance free. You really have to jam the pouches into the soap dispenser so they were poorly designed in that regard but I find these work better than the old dishwasher detergent. All of my dishes come out clean and sparkly with no residue at all!
