Gel for dishwashers

gels for dishwashersHaving bought a dishwasher, many housewives think that now all the difficulties associated with washing dishes are behind. But in fact, everything is not so simple, you must first learn how to use a dishwasher, and most importantly, choose the right detergent that will provide an excellent washing result. A lot of people currently prefer gels for washing dishes, gel for washing children's dishes is especially popular. We decided to devote this article to washing gels.

What are gel products good for?

The gel-like dishwasher is a cocktail of various chemical additives that help wash dishes, fight bacteria and clean the inside of the “iron helper”. In principle, the gel does the same thing as the powder and even more, so many consider it a complete analogue of the powder, but this is not so. Gel products differ in composition from powders. They lack abrasive and other poorly soluble components.gels for dishwashers

Gel-like means for the dishwasher have tangible advantages not only in comparison with powder, but even in comparison with tablets. Largely because of this, they are preferred to buy a fairly large group of fans, owners of dishwashers. What are the benefits?

  • They wash dishes more carefully than powders and tablets. Dishes do not spoil so quickly.
  • It is more convenient to pour gel into a cuvette for detergents.
  • The gel dissolves faster and acts more effectively on short washing programs.
  • Gel is less consumed than powder, and even more so a tablet.
  • Gel, unlike powder or tablets, is ideally suited for the pre-soak mode.
  • The gel is easier to store, it will not be damaged by excess moisture, and it does not evaporate volatile components like powder.

Note! The gel-like dishwasher detergent is one of the few that are suitable for the “pre-soak” mode; powder and tablets are completely useless.

Instead of gel, experts often recommend using capsules for the dishwasher, since they possess all of the above properties, and even contain components that fight the formation of scale and mold inside the machine. Although if you look, then inside the capsule is still the same gel, only more complex in composition.

Gel Instructions

Using a gel-like product for a dishwasher is very simple, although there are some nuances that you should definitely talk about. To begin, we will analyze the procedure for using the gel for dishwashers. If it is a standard washing program:gels for dishwashers

  • it is necessary to open a bottle with a gel-like product with your own hands;
  • open the door of the dishwasher;
  • on a cuvette for detergents, you need to open a special valve with your own hands and pour the gel there;
  • close the valve, load the baskets with dirty dishes, close the door of the dishwasher;
  • set the desired washing program and start it.

If the dishes are very dirty, you may need to set the “pre-rinse” mode yourself. How to apply the gel in this case? We do the same thing as with the standard washing program, only pour the gel into a special compartment for preliminary rinsing. Only in this case, the machine will take the gel correctly, and the program is implemented in the best way.

Important! Using your own gel-like product in a composition that already has salt, you must remember that such a gel is not able to replace the salt completely. Pour salt into a special compartment anyway.

We still have one more serious question, which also needs to be discussed under this item - how much gel is needed for one wash? This is a serious question, because everyone is interested in spending such funds optimally, so that the dishes remain clean and the gel leaves as little as possible. The amount of gel used for one washing cycle will depend on many factors: the degree of contamination of the dishes, the concentration of active substances, composition, etc.

If we take the main types of gels for dishwashers, which we will talk about later, then experts noticed some patterns in determining their amount for a single use.

  1. If there is burnt or dried fat on the dishes, as well as dried dough or mashed potatoes, dye or tea plaque (for any other difficult contaminations), pour 25 ml of gel.
  2. If the dishes are not fragile, and you plan to set a washing program at 70 0C, even with complex contaminants, you can limit yourself to 20 ml of gel.
  3. Pour 15-20 ml of gel in case you load dishes with fresh, uncomplicated dirt.
  4. Do not reduce the amount of gel too much at half load. Experiment with your own hands, start with 15 ml, if this is not enough, gradually increase the amount of gel until you achieve the optimal result.
