Today's post is brought to you by Citra-Dish. I have several posts started, but I can't find the cord for to download pictures from my camera and my iPhone is falling apart so I am trying not to use it since "they" (Apple) say repairing the phone will cost as much as buying a new one (grrr!) and I would like my phone to last at least until I know if my husband is getting laid off with this latest round of Yahoo! job cuts. So, I will interrupt my normal posts about...whatever it is I usually talk about and bring you a commercial.
I love Natural Choices products. I love them and have used them for years. Before I became a parent I used Natural Choices products. I sell them in my business. Most cleaning can be done with simple things like white vinegar and baking soda, but for those tougher jobs or when I'm feeling lazy I use Natural Choices. Except for my automatic dishwasher. I still use Natural Choices for hand washing, but I have tried EVERYTHING (read all the "natural" products...I am not a Cascade kind of girl *shudder*) out there and they all have left me underwhelmed. I do not like to pre-wash my dishes people. It seems silly to wash them by hand before putting them in the dishwasher and wasteful. I do rinse them as I put them in the sink, but just a quick rinse with cold water. That is all I should have to do. With Citra-Dish this is all I do and my dishes come out great. Well, we ran out of Citra-Dish and Rob offered to run out and get some (in the rain, on his bike, of course), but I found an old bottle of another natural brand which will not be named and said we would finally use this old bottle up instead.
Mistake, big mistake. Frustration. Re-washing dishes. Pre-washing and re-washing dishes. Should have just bought the Citra-Dish. Now I'm not saying this is the best product for you. I know everyone is different. All machines are different. I also should say that this bottle has been opened in the back of the butler's pantry for who knows how long and I know this effects how well a product performs. It still sucks. I want my Citra-Dish.
