So, I never thought the day would come when a dishwasher detergent would cause me emotional heartache (or even make it onto my blog). But the day has come and I can probably call myself a full-fledged homemaker now. (ugh…let’s not actually call me that, okay?)
Yesterday, Joe went out to buy more of my lovely, wonderful Mrs. Meyer’s Dishwashing Powder. It took me many brands before I landed on this brilliant product. The problem with the other brands was either all the sippy cups would smell like nasty fake citrus, or there would be detergent residue and speckles on the dishes. Seriously, every time I opened the dishwasher, you would hear a loud, disappointed sigh, or sometimes even an “aaaargh.” Then, Mrs. Meyer’s saved the day. Her dishwashing powder gave me beautifully clean dishes with no residue or nasty smell. In fact, the smell as I put it in the dishwasher ACTUALLY made me happy. (which is amazing, given that I was doing DISHES…ha)
Sadly, Joe returned from his trip yesterday without my precious dishwashing powder after going to THREE different stores! I went online to see if I could order it, and OH NO!!! It’s not there! But WHY, MRS. MEYER????!!!!!!! I almost cried. Why would you discontinue this wondrous product? So, my question is…now what do I do? My dishwasher needs powder and not liquid. Oh so sad.
Anybody have a good recommendation for a environmentally safe but efficient and sweet smelling dishwashing powder? PLEEEEASE?
