Costco dishwasher detergent.

Anybody using this Kirkland Liquid Gel dishwasher detergent? I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed that it doesn't rinse clean off the glasses in the top drawer 'cause I'm thinking of returning it.

If nobody else has this problem then the issue is likely with my dishwasher. If a couple of other people have this problem then maybe we all have dishwasher issues. If many people see thisit is most likely the soap. If everyone has residue then it is definitely the soap.

Out of 100,000+ members I can't be the only one who shops at Costco and it is unlikely that I am the only one who bought dishwasher detergent there.

It's called troubleshooting. Learn it, live it, love it.

I have hard water and use that detergent and it works fine for me. Are you using a rinsing agent? Like JetDry? That's the only way my stuff rinses well.

use it and don't have a problem with it. except for when my wife doesn't load the dishwasher correctly.

Are you loading the dishwasher correctly?

I find that gel detergents do the same thing to me. I use the kirkland powder and it works great. very little residue, even with my water that is harder than steel. Just make sure its in the trunk for the ride home or it will make your eyes bleed!

Yes, green jug yellow cap. Water hardness here is 150-170 (Rossdale zone) http://www.epcor.ca/pages/water/wate...y/wqdaily.html

I was using Cascade before this stuff and never had any residue.
