Combination detergent

Apart from conventional detergents (Solo),
a number of products are offered with
additional functions. These products
contain not only the detergent but also
rinse-aid and salt replacement substances
(3in1) and, depending on the combination
(4in1, 5in1, etc.), additional components
such as glass protection or stainless steel
cleaner. Combination detergents function
only up to a specific degree of hardness
(usually 26° Clarke). Over this limit salt
and rinse-aid must be added.
As soon as combined detergents
are used, the rinse programme is adjusted
automatically to ensure the best possible

protective cover: Take hold of the
cover with dry hands only and put
the detergent into an absolutely
dry detergent dispenser only, otherwise
the detergent may stick.
– If you switch from combined
detergents to solo detergents, ensure
that the water softening system and
amount of rinse aid have been set to
the correct value.
