How clean are your dishes?

Phosphates pose a threat to aquatic life and can end up in drinking-water reservoirs. If phosphates are that threatening, do you really want their residue left behind on your dishes (and food)? In response to new laws, more and more makers of dishwasher detergents are reducing the amounts of phosphates in their products. But, according to a recent article published by The New York Times,Cleaner for the Environment, Not for the Dishes,” consumers claim their low-phosphate detergents aren’t getting the job done and are bringing in loads of complaints about cloudy, spotty dishes. And they may contain other chemicals as well, like chlorine bleach and sodium hydroxide, all of which can stick around on your dishes even when the wash is done.

Look for a dishwshing detergent that is made with 100% nontoxic ingredients. Shouldn’t everyone you know be using a phosphate-free dishwasher concentrate that leaves dishes sparkling clean?
