more smarty

Do you have hard water? Are you having issues with your method smarty dish cubes getting your dishes squeaky clean? (I haven't, personally; but do hear of some that have, including those with hard water.) If so, give this a try! It was posted on Facebook by a method advocate who uses the dish cubes:

"Try adding a teaspoon of sodium carbonate to your dishwasher each cycle (along with your dish cube.) This will soften the water and it is a natural ingredient. Sodium carbonate cleans clothes, softens water, cuts grease and disinfects. It also increases the cleaning power of soap."

Sodium carbonate is NOT baking soda. Sodium carbonate is also called washing soda or soda ash.

Baking soda is sodium BIcarbonate. It is not the same thing.

Baking soda should not be used for cleaning aluminum pots and pans. It will cause a chemical reaction with the protective oxide layer.

Thanks! I've corrected the baking soda error! Sorry about that. (slap slap slap)
