You can use tablets as well as powder
or liquid detergents for dishwashers, but
never use washing up liquid. The dosage
can be individually adjusted with powder
or a liquid detergent according
to the degree of soiling. Tablets contain
an adequately large amount of active
ingredients for all cleaning tasks. Modern,
powerful detergents predominantly
use a low-alkaline formulation with
phosphate and enzymes. Phosphates
bond the lime in the water. Enzymes break
down starch and remove protein.
Phosphate-free detergents are less
frequent. These have a slightly weaker
lime bonding capacity and require
a higher dosage. To remove coloured
stains (e.g. tea, tomato sauce), oxygen-
based bleaching agents are usually used.
To ensure a good washing result, always
follow the instructions on the detergent
If you have further questions,
we recommend that you contact
the detergent manufacturers' helpline.
Read and observe the safety information
and instructions for use on the packaging
for cleaning and rinsing agents.
