For best results shake well before pouring. 1. Load Dishes Properly: Soiled surfaces should face spray. Do not block spray to top rack. 2. Fill All Cups Completely: Use hot water with every load. Use more Palmolive gel for very hard water; less for soft water. 3. Sterling Silverware Care: Separate sterling silver from stainless steel. Avoid spilling directly on silver items; this may cause dark spots (removable with silver polish). 4. For Tough Cleaning Jobs: Pretreat by applying Palmolive gel directly to dishes.; Palmolive gel dishwasher detergent is safe for septic tanks.
That was the promise declared on the bottle of Palmolive Gel Dishwasher Detergent (Lemon Clean Scent). I expected no less from this detergent, since it is made by Colgate-Palmolive, a company whose products I’ve come to know and trust over the years.
Palmolive Gel Dishwasher Detergent Eco+ scrubbed off the toughest, dried-on messes. Plus, it's available in three scents: Citrus Apple Splash, Lavender Splash, and Lemon Splash. Unfortunately, this formula left glassware spotted and moderately filmy after cleaning and an average number of the remaining items in our test loads emerged with hard water spots, as well.
