Urgh I can still taste it!
Everything that went through the dishwasher tastes metallic and poison! Plastic is a lot worse that china or glass but it's still there. Not sure if I should try again with an extra rinse, or just bin them all... It says if you ingest the capsules to call poisons information, not feeling too pleased about eating some of the residue!
Disgusting and terribly concerning!
We bought a new LG dishwasher in which we had issues with dishwasher tablets not dissolving properly, in and out of the compartment. I purchased the morning fresh liquid capsules which seem to work really well ... at least that's what I thought... some time back we noticed a foul, metallic taste in our soup and couldn't figure anything out... we thought maybe something to do with the dishwasher so I set about trying other detergent products and started using the gel for quite some time, which was ok but still not great, just never dissolved pro...perly... recently went back to the morning fresh liquid capsules, leftovers I still had in the cupboard, and have again noticed foul metallic taste on utensils and any dishes that have been washed in the dishwasher. The only thing I changed was back to using the liquid capsules so decided to google search "foul taste on plastic utensils" and I found that others have had the same thing with the morning fresh liquid capsules... in the bin they go! Now back to trying to find something that will work properly in our dishwasher, maybe back to the gel which still isn't the best. Thinking I may even try making my own!
Terrible horrible stuff.
Left a bitter tasting, acrid taste on my utensils and everything! Have had to throw away wooden products that have been in the dishwasher, whole meals (!) due to acrid taste in the food. This is a dangerous product and i have contacted Cussons, & my local Supermarket to recommend that they remove it from their shelves : something is very wrong here. I feel like i have poisoned my family! Recommend you do not buy this product.
Very good - place the capsule at the bottom of your dishwasher for a more thorough clean
My dishwasher (Bosch) is only two years old. I started to have problems in the last year even using Finish, with brown food type spots on my "cleaned" glasses, and finding uncleaned plates after a full, 45 - 60degree wash (not a very hot pot and pan wash) I have used the Finish tablets for years.
I have always placed my dish washing tablet in it's recommended dispenser. I was only a day away from the end of my Warranty and the repairer coming out, when a friend suggested I place the tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher instead, (not in the...dispenser) under the area of the bottom arm. I could not get over the difference in the wash. The issue of residue disappeared then and there! The repairer was cancelled needless to say! I have been using the Morning Fresh Liquid Caps for over 2 weeks now, as they came with the dish washing liquid I purchased, as a bonus, and have not had a problem with them at all. I have not noticed any bad tastes, although the microwave rice cooker does smell a little strongly of soap.
Not good at all!
I'll start off by saying the idea is great- a little pod full of the correct amount of liquid and not needing any rinse aid!! Great!
Not great. I have a 12 month old Miele dishwasher and all my dishes are coming out with a layer of the detergent left on them, resulting in a foul taste on my dishes and in the food. I tried adding rinse aid to see if that would help but it made no difference... Very disappointed as morning fresh has always been a fairly reputable brand.
I support all the reviewers who have given this 1 star. We had bought new Tefal pans, and thought that they were to blame for several meals having to be thrown out and were ready to return them, but we then realised that we started using these morning fresh caps coincidentally at the same time. The bitter, taste all through the soups, sauces and mash we couldn't eat were from the utensils being cleaned with these dishwashing caps, not the pans.
Hey Cussons, respond to a few of these people's concerns, please, and tell us if the chemicals ruin...
I wish there was an option of no star. I used this product and it left an awful taste on all the dishes and I had to throw whole meal because off this. I am so scared that I ate a lil bit from that meal and I am pregnant, hopefully it won't affect anything. These people should be ashamed, that after these many complaint they are still making this harmful product.
Good price but very disappointing result
We are builders and have been building our own homes for 24 years. We have just finished a build and been in our house for 5 months now. For the first time in all these years I discovered black mound in my dishwasher every 2 days. It was everywhere. Inside the arms the wheels the detergent cap the rinse aid dispenser .... You name it. I couldn't understand why, it's never happened before and I am an OCD cleaner! I didn't for a minute think it was the dishwasher liquid I was using. Although in past years I have always used the finish liquid dete...rgent but discovered morning fresh are now doing liquid caps. So decided they were a lot cheaper I'd give them a go. We called the dishwasher manufacturer thinking it was a faulty dishwasher who suggested I do a scale clean with finish to make sure no blockages in the pipes etc... The mound was still there. I gave a very thorough scrub with a small toothbrush to the whole inside of the dishwasher decided to change the detergent to finish capsules and believe it or not I no longer gave the mound problem! I can't believe it as I really didn't think it was a detergent problem, however the proof is in the product. Looks like I have to buy the more expensive finish products. You get what you pay for.
Doesn't wash properly and levels a bitter-tasting residue
whenever I empty the dishwasher there is 7-8 things that need to go through again as they were not washed properly. I don't mean baking dishes, I mean things like cutlery, plates, bowls, mugs. Ive used heaps of other brands and I've never had dishwashing caps or tablets this bad. Even the homebrand powder washes better.
The worst thing about this product, though, is the disgusting residue left of the dishes. It tastes like when you spray perfume and a bit goes on your mouth accidentally.
I wish I'd read the reviews on this site before buying this product.
Hi everyone, I too have got an awful taste on our plastic utensils. I actually threw them all out, thinking it was the plastic but now that I've read all these reviews I now know that it's the morning fresh, I didn't have this problem with finish except for powder residue. You can win some but can't win em all.
Leaves awful taste on everything!
The capsules cleaned the dishes fine but left an awful chemical metallic taste on everything especially the plastic ware. The taste was so bad that we had to throw away any food that came into contact with anything that had been washed with this product. Called Cussons and made a complaint, surprised this product passed quality testing.
Awful bitter taste left on anything washed with these liquid caps.
This product is not even worth 1/2 a star!!! (I gave it one star in order to post this review). For the start, why are these dishwashing liquid caps still on supermarket shelves? I just bought them for the convenience of washing up dishes in my dishwasher yesterday but much to my horrified discovery that it left such nasty bitter taste on all the dishes/glasswares, etc. There should be a national recall for this product to be taken off all stores. Do not buy this product unless you want to get poisoned. Will ring and complain to Cussons.
Questions & Answers
How do you get rid of the foul taste on dishes
CAW Why are the caps leaking Can only use half the pack because the remaining caps are all stuck together and swimming in the fluid
These caps are the best thing I have used in my dishwasher. Unfortunately my supermarket has stopped stocking these. Is there anywhere in NZ preferably in the South Island I can purchase? cheers Jan
Hi Jan, I was able to get some recently through EBay (posted from somewhere in NSW I think). I am not sure what I will do when they run out.
I did ring Cussons Australia about 12 months ago, at that time they said the big supermarkets stocked them and after a further hunt I did find some in a big Coles back then. The Cussons in Auckland has a free call number 0800 287 766, hopefully they have some positive suggestions for you. regards Ros
