I think fairy platinum plus are terrible , Ive used almost the entire packet ( 55 ) and sometimes the dishes still have residue on them . Il stick to ALDI tablets . Very dissatisfied with the price ! Wish I had my receipt so I could have a refund !!!!
Tried a few brands and will stick with Fairy from now on
I'm new to dishwashers. This year when I moved house I purchased a new Dishlex (see my review) and have been trying different brands of dishwasher tablets. I purchased Fairy Platinum on special and I've had excellent results with every wash. I'd found using another brand tablet on the 50 degree eco wash cycle, I still had stains on my coffee mugs - but not with Fairy. Cooked on gunk on baking dishes and saucepans - gone. Cutlery - spotless. Glass wear - spotless. Metal things like the colander and cheese grater look cleaner than I've eve...r seen them. The ONLY negative I can say is that the smell is stronger than other brands of tablet while the dishwasher is on, and is not lemon, more an industrial chemical smell. However, the smell goes quickly when the cycle has finished so not problem enough for me to change brands.
After trying to pull apart two tablets that were stuck together (quite a few in the packet were stuck together), I ended up with the yellow liquid squirting straight into my eye. Luckily I was beside the sink and rinsed quickly. Trip to doctor and 24 hours later still very red and sore. Cant imagine what would have happened if I had not rinsed immediately.

Worst ever !!!
It was half price and like a good customer bought this product. What a waste . High Chemical smell. Wonder what harm it does for the planet??? The tablet did not desolve and crap every where. Please note - We are using this on a brand new Fisher Parker dish washer. Did not have issues with Finsh. Dont buy !!!
Absolutely the most effective dishwashing tablets on the market.
So impressed with these dishwashing tablets, dishes, glasses, cutlery have never been cleaner or shinier. Even the inside of the dishwasher sparkles without the need for separate application of rinse aid, as it is built into the tablet and is far more superior than other brands.
Purchased in September 2019 for $13.50.

Blasts clean dishes without causing the cloudy look on glasses. I’ve tried many products like the one that’s always advertised ( think blue colour packaging) and they do not come close to this. Excellence all the way. I hope they don’t change the formula!

Good Cleaning - Bad Taste
We have found these to clean our dishes better than the leading brand however they leave the chemical/detergent taste on dishes i.e. I can taste it when I am drinking my coffee. Good value for mobey in terms of cost but not worth the bad taste on the dishes afterwards.
Got these on sale, need I say more
After all the hype of hearing about how good this brand was, I saw them on sale and thought...what the heck why not as everyone else is talking about and using them, but when I tried them in my dishwasher, I opened the door after the cycle had finished and all I could see was a heap of suds on the dish's and in the bottom of the dishwasher so therefore I had to do a rinse cycle only, not very impressed as water is precious and I hate wasting water.
Good Dishwashing Tablet
Owner of Miele dishwasher for two years. Have been using Finish Quantum Max for the last 2 years and I did receive a voucher to redeem Miele dishwasher tablets as part of purchasing the dishwasher. However, the Miele dishwasher tablet has left rust like stains on all my cutleries as compared to Finish tablets. I also did try using the Finish Quantum Ultimate tablets and that too was harsh on my cutleries so I then decided to stick to Finish Quantum Max. Apparently, now the Finish Quantum Max is no longer available in stores, it's now called Fi...nish Quantum only-albeit the same looking packaging. Recently, I started noticing Finish Quantum & Finish Quantum Max has not been up to mark, often I have to scratch stains off my clean dishes which should not happen at all. I then decided to try Fairy Platinum which was on sale at Coles this week. Washed first round of dishes this morning. All came out clean, there was only a slight residual smell when I opened the dishwasher and decided to leave the dishes inside for drying till night. Verdict : All dishes are completely dried, clean and there is no residual smell on the dishes or cutleries except a slight smell on the silicone spatula, which also left stronger smell from Finish previously. Apart from that I also noticed my rice cooker pot has turned from shiny silver pot to dry matt like silver ( when I used the Finish product) but today it turned into a matt warm gray colour after using the Fairy tablets not sure what is happening here. I will keep on using it for sometime until something good and efficient comes to the market.
Leaves wash dirty every time
I recently bought this tablet for the first time as it was on special and claimed it was as good as the rest. I have used the entire package and there wasn’t a single wash that was left clean. I didn’t do anything differently than I normally did and have always had previously spot less finishes with other leading brands. There was at least four occasions where I re washed bowls for a second and third time and ended up using the other brand tablet or washed it by hand to get it clean as it still wasn’t clean. I won’t be buying again and based on...my use and objectivity can say that it doesn’t support what the brand says it can and should do. On top of which my dishwasher is also brand new and only two months old so there isn’t any excuses or justification as to why this product shouldn’t work.
Very nice product, but leaves a residual smell
I have Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and it works excellent on tough stains and cleans all the vessels properly. Very satisfied with the product, still i am just concerned about the residual smell it leaves on the product after wash. The smell goes off once i keep the dish washer open for few minutes before arranging the vessels. Overall i am happy with the product and would recommend for anyone to give it a shot.

Questions & Answers
I seem to be experiencing problems with my fairy original.. ie. ... the casing is only allowing the top part to be released . I have lanced the casing and washed again ..
Has anyone experienced this occurring? And , is there a simple solution ?
It could be the casing of the dishwasher,its happened to me as well.I put pressure on the casing a few times and wash again.Hope this works
The casing on the tablet needs to melt off, releasing the powder. I have found that sometimes it doesn't do that on quick washes. It does not have contact with really hot water enough to melt the casing. If doing a quick wash then loose powder or liquid is best.
