Then, share your story/tips on how you keep your kitchen tidy.

I just received my shipment of Target Up Dish packs. Currently, I use Great Value Dish Pack from Wal-mart. I'll be comparing these two brands later tonight, or tomorrow after I run my next load of dishes. I've been very happy with the Great Value brand, we'll see how Target Up holds up to the other brand.

I received my package of Up & Up dish Packs yesterday...  Wow there were a lot in there!

First off, the box and bags of dish packs smelled great.  Nice fresh lemony scent.


I am pre-wash dishloader.  Our dishwasher does work well but old habits are hard to die and I hate finding dishes with food that is left behind and now baked on because of the dishwasher.

Normally, we use Cascade complete - liquid formula


The packs cleaned the dishes well.  I didn't feel like the dishwasher smelled as nice as the Cascade complete does.  It didn't smell off or funny but I am use to the dishwasher having a nice clean scent on the inside when it is done running the cycle.

All of my dishes came out clean and I didn't have any hard water residue.  

The square pack was a bit on the chubby side and I had to press down extra hard to get my soap door to shut all the way but it did close and did empty completely out/disolve all the way after the cycle ran.

My hands were wet when I handles the soap pack tonight so I am not sure if dissolved but the pack opened up on my fingers when I was placing it into the container holder and the granuals were stuck to my hand but came off easily when washed.

Overall, I thought they worked well.  I'll report more after the current cycle finishes.  I think we would use them again.  I have been hesitant to use any "pack" of soap because I didn't realize the pack dissolved and was concerned about all the extra wrappers, etc....

I am pleasantly surprised with this product!  I need to go to target and look at the price point as well!

Sounds like a great product! I'm grateful that I have a dishwasher to use to help wash my dishes, it makes cleaning up a snap!

Thanks for the reviews. I always read reviews before purchasing a new product.

I have not used this brand, but I have used another brand of the packs, and my problem is I have to dry the soap cup really well or they stick to it and don't dissolve.

I just got a sample of a laundry detergent in those packs, they must be getting really popular. They are convenient, no measuring to worry about.

I keep my kitchen tidy by staying on top of it. I don't let dishes sit in the sink and build up. I keep a small portable vacuum in the kitchen that I run twice a day.....
