Works for Me!

If you have a dishwasher, throw in a washing packet and a 1/2 teaspoon of a product you can find in the paint aisle of your home center called TSP or Tri-Sodium-Phosphate. This is the wonderful phosphate product they removed from the good working dishwasing detergent and it will boost the current detergent significantly.

Your Say

I tried that and it didn't work. For a while I was able to buy Cascade Finish, a phosphated commercial dishwasher detergent, from RestockIt but then P&G discontinued it. I bought $300.00 worth of it in 2011 or so and am just running out.

The people at bubble bandit.com claim they still sell phosphated detergent, so I'm going to give them a try.

Cascade with Phosphates can be bought from Amazon. Search for commercial or institutional dishwashing detergent. Hospitals and Hotels MUST get their dishes clean the first time so the old formula is still made for them. If challenged tell them you run a brothel, union run of course.

Did I ever tell you the story about the Union Man (Max) who went to Vegas on a convention?
The second night he and his friends decided to go to a brothel but Max demanded that they go to a unionized house. So he and his friends began the trek from one cathouse and knocking shop after another. At each Max would inquire if the establishment was a union shop or not. At place after place the answer was no. The other men grew impatient but Max insisted that as union men at a union convention they could only patronize a union house.
Finally, just before dawn, a cab dropped them off at a small, drab place at the city limits. One dim red bulb illuminated the door. Max knocked and they were admitted. Max asked the question and the fat, old madam said "Yes, they were a union shop".
Max was delighted and looked over the girls in the small parlor. One of the girls was young and pretty with perky breasts and blonde hair, she smiled at him. Excited and impatient Max pointed at her and told the Madam "I'll take that one!".
The madam said "Not so fast" and she beckoned to a corner of the room. A homely, middle-aged woman pulled herself up and walked towards him. She was fat with stringy hair and one glass eye.
"Remember, this is a union shop", the madam barked "And Gladys has seniority!".

Try using that in Burlington,VT and as soon as they find out they'll paint you with varnish, then string you up over a solar panel farm for a few hours. Just till you harden. Mention the word phosphates there and they morph into something out of C.H.U.D.

I mix trisodium phosphate into my dishwashing powder. Works like a charm. Spotless too.

But how would the folks in Burlington catch me in my 12 cylinder, 4 carburetor, Jaguar- on their bicycles?
Uh oh, wait. Do they still sell unadulterated gasoline in Canada? Oh, nevermind. I can't go there anyway, due to mixing ETOH and gasoline, in the "wrong" formula, 10 years (or so) ago.

Stunning! After typing, and posting, something with the word "Burlington" in it, the very next site I went to "featured" a "new" (large)side ad for State Farm agent Jack Lindley III, Burlington Vt.
