Day 4: How I Clean My Dishes Without Phosphates
|April 17, 2011||Filled under Get Clean, Uncategorized|
It recently came to my attention that many people are getting frustrated with their commercial automatic dishwashing detergents which used to leave dishes sparkly clean and now they are not. I even read that many of these consumers were having their dishwashers checked to see if that was the problem.
But, what really happened is recent legislation in several states required manufacturers to stop using phosphates due to the impact on our water supply and aquatic life.
NPR wrote an article about this called, “Dishes still dirty? Blame phosphate-free detergent.”
To read this article, you would think there are no better solutions for clean dishes than phosphates.
This viewpoint really surprised me!
I have been using phosphate free detergent since 1991! That’s when Shaklee introduced it’s Basic D: Phosphate-free and Patented Dish Powder: Basic-D® doesn’t require pre-rinsing. It cleans without chlorine or phosphates. It is citrate-based; its natural enzymes clean completely in hard water.
I have clean dishes!
I think the real problem here is these companies had to quickly make a shift in their formulas and haven’t quite figured it out. And maybe because Shaklee did figure it out and put a patent on it!!!
And that, my friends, is what I use and have used since I learned about Shaklee.
So, here are some reasons for you to CHANGE BRANDS:
No harmful chemicals!
Let’s start with effectiveness. This stuff works!
I took some pictures of my dirty dishes in the dishwasher. I am showing you that I didn’t rinse them first. (Do you still pre-rinse?)
Same bowl, different perspective…
Isn’t it clean and sparkly?

I’ve heard so many people say they don’t use Shaklee because it is so expensive. But in fact, it is much less expensive than most brands because it is super concentrated, so you use less.
You only use 2 teaspoons.
Never fill the dishwashing compartments again!
That’s all you use. Think about all the money you save, all the packaging that is reduced, and how the water supply is not polluted. Plus, imagine… no toxic residue left on your dishes.
Isn’t it time you changed brands?
