Maybe you all have already covered this; but no need ever to buy that expensive Affffrrressshhhh.


Use 2 pounds of Cascade during the tub clean steam, and hit the button and fill w/hot, Cheap,...Cleaned a many of dishes for years...won't hurt any frontload.

(or is it 2 tablespoons?) cool


Anyway, Good Luck,

I thought about that with the purchase of my new Maxima....but.....
I became concerned what all that Cascade would do to my aluminum tub spider that seem to be notorious for rotting out in US front loaders.

I got some slightly cheaper Tide tub cleaner instead.

No, really...have been using this for a number of years, and even machines that I have seen in service since new, never a problem...


I actually think its better to get that film of Scrunge(Fisher & Paykel term), soap, etc. off than have it there.


Really though, the afresh stuff is no more than a tablet of low sudsing detergent just as we know in powder cascade.


The reason for powder over liquid, is the silicates in there to protect machine parts, such as Tide has had since the '50's.



Hope this Helps,
