If you use this, open all doors and windows while using. I did not, and the whole two-storey house was full of horrid chemical fumes that stayed around throughout the night (I ran the cleaner in the evening). I opened the dishwasher this morning to inspect it and the fumes were still in there. Traces of the blue liquid were still in the filter, so I cleaned the filter and ran the dishwasher again. Make sure you wear rubber gloves to handle the parts and the empty bottle because the miniscule remains of the fluid, even after repeated rinsing..., are so slimy that it must be really alkaline stuff. I have never experienced any of these problems with brand-name dishwasher cleaning fluids, so I will return to those in future (if I live, after these fumes).
Be careful with this stuff
My wife accidentally purchased this stuff as Rinse Aid because the liquid is the same colour. Took me quite a while to remove it from the dispenser. I had to use a spray pump. Like the previous reviewer the fumes were overpowering and I felt quite ill with a sore throat (make sure youuse a mask!). This product should be more clearly labelled and the colour changed to differ from Rinse Aid.
Poor labelling and colour same as Rinse Aid.
I tried this product to save some money and the outcome was shocking. The overpowering fumes smelt like the work area of a dry cleaning shop and caused my eyes to sting and water. I also got a thumping headache for 24 hours which was then triggered again each time I opened the dishwasher to try and get the stench out. It took 4 days to get the stench out of my kitchen and dishwasher. I've never had this happen with my usual brand. I ended up buying my usual brand of dishwasher cleaner to run in a vain attempt to get the oppressive chemical stin...k out of the dishwasher. It helped a bit after trying bi-carb soda and also running a cycle with 2 cups of white vinegar. This product might be cheap but is totally unsatisfactory and, in my opinion, it is dangerous. "Buyer Beware" is my advice. Inexpensive Toxic fumes and stench
