  • Regular hand dishwashing soap in the automatic dishwasher will cause it to subs up and make a mess, if not blow a hose.

    Automatic dish soap is caustic and cannot be used for hand washing dishes unless you wear gloves and rinse thoroughly! It will cause chemical burns.

  • Did you know that using dish soap instead of dishwasher fluid will eventually break your dishwasher? Oh yes...I have seen MANY busted from doing that. I would go and get dishwasher detergent. I worked at many apartment complexes. People would bust our dishwashers all the time doing stuff like that.
