You knew that it was only a matter of time before I thought of this.

I confirmed with Jon that Rosalie's Zero Suds does not suds in the dishwasher. He reported that he has used it in all of his and not only did it not suds, it cleans dishes, albeit expensively. This would be the holy grail that Monsanto was chasing in the early 50s when they were looking for a non-sudsing surfactant and came up with automatic washer all. So, if you have Rosalie's Zero Suds on hand and happen to run out of machine dishwashing detergent, you are not out of luck or dishwasher detergent.

During a Gathering at Jon's house this summer, we all witnessed the "Power of Rosalie's" in  the Youngstown.


With that Port Hole Window, there wasn't one moment of the machine "bogging" down due to suds.


And the Wares came out spotless.


I also "sperimented" with Rosalie's in my KDS-20 and KenWhirl.


The results ??? Just Perfect. I wish I had the manual set "Rinse Glo" like on the 1960 GEs.  But thinking now that I wrote this, the Youngstown did not have any Rinse Aid and the results were stellar.

Jon said that he uses between 1/4 and 1/2 of the teeny tiny scoop for a load of dishes.

Are the chemicals in this soap safe to ingest?

It's not soap and if your dishwasher has a rinse cycle the question is moot.

It also might be good to use a dishwasher that uses more than 3 drops of water.

And sprays with more force than an enlarged prostate: weak start, stop and dribble.
