Why are my dishes still dirty after going through my dishwasher

I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but chances are your dishes aren’t coming clean after running them through your dishwasher. When you look at your glasses do they have a grey film to them? Is the inside door of your dishwasher coated with  white stuff? Do your plates have a film on them, and lack the squeeky clean feel they used to have? Well if this sounds familiar I have a little secret I want to share with you. It’s not your dishwasher. It’s the dishwasher detergent you’re using.

Last year 17 states, and Canada mandated the removal of all phosphates from dish detergents. This is a great thing for the envirenment, but my dishes are now dirty after going through the dishwasher. The government made an exception for institutional dishwashing powder used by restaurants, and commercial applications. I guess they don’t want us eating off dirty dishes when we go to Denny’s. I wonder why they quietly banned phosphates in our dishwashing detergent in only 17 states, and not all of them. Why are phosphates used in fertilizers for lawns, and farm applications? I’m sleeping much better here in America knowing that with a 14 trillion dollar national debt, 9%+ unemployment, three wars, and a housing crisis our government has protected us from phosphates in our dish detergents. The problem is I’d like to go back to the days of clean dishes, and glasses with no film on them.

I know a way you all can get the good old dishwasher detergent with phosphates. Your local janitor supply, or restaurant supply company carries brand name dishwasher soap with phosphates. They aren’t going to check your identification to see what restaurant you own. If they ask what restaurant you own tell them Mom’s. If you’re like me with a husband who expects to be fed along with kids, it feels like you’re running a restaurant anyway. If you’d like to contact me directly drop me an email at
