Also asked, are dishwasher pods better than liquid?
Compared to liquid gel and regular detergent, dishwashing tablets are usually more expensive and can require a longer rinsing cycle to remove mineral deposits. They also offer less flexibility than liquid gel and powder as they cannot be precisely measured for different sizes of dishwasher load.
Additionally, can all dishwashers use pods? Using Pods in Older Dishwashers. Using automatic pods in older dishwashers usually isn't a problem because the outer casing dissolves in water. If your pods have a drying agent, that may get washed away early and not do much good, but the detergent will do it's job.
Subsequently, question is, do dishwasher pods work better?
Apparently, detergent pacs perform better than powders or gel, and the most expensive products aren't always your best choice. “That's because more pacs contain a pretreat solution, degreaser, bleach, or rinse-aid to boost cleaning,” CR explains.
