Any of you try them? They contain 8.0% phosphorus in the form of Phosphates? Cheryl

I don't see phosphates listed on their website description:

INGREDIENTS: Sodium carbonate, sodium silicate, TAED (tetraacetylethylenediamine), enzymes, limonene.

Funny thing is..I haven't seen anywhere its said for commercial use. Actually another member here Mich told me about them..and another thing some people have found them at their local Target..however my target didn't stock them. I ordered from Walmart .com...they are on Amazon and on Dropps website.

My old dishwasher has to have phosphates or nothings getting clean. When I did my first load with the Dropps..I bypassed prewash since I want to see how well these would preform..a full load and I scrape but never rinse. Everything was gleemingly clean and spotless and polished.

Nice! I'll have to see if my Target has these. I've been using the Member's Mark (Sam's) pacs and they work very well too. I add a small amount of STPP to each load too and some Clorox pellets to the prewash (mostly to help with staining).

Joey I also usually use STPP. What I hate is that there's no cloranated detergents except gels on the shelves anymore. Old machines with their shorter wash times benefit from chlorine. I have been adding my own Chlorine Bleach with Cascade pods, I know it kills the enzymes but the surfactants still work lol. Actually what I've found works great for me with just a 15 minute wash cycle is to just turn the dial back around for another 15 minutes of wash time giving enzymes time to work....but ya check out the Dropps they are wonderful and I'm very grateful to Mich for finding them.

I am glad your having great result from the dishwasher packs....

I bought the ones for laundry, and there were worthless colored water....could explain why Walmart had them on clearance for .50cents a bag.....
