What do you use in your dishwasher?

When we had a dishwasher I made my own powder by mixing equal parts borax and bicarb. I used 2 tbsp a wash and used white vinegar for rinse aid.

I tried the bicarb/borax mix but didn't find it as good as the commercial ones.
I mostly use a brand that they sell in woolworths. It's a NZ eco-friendly brand, but I can't remember the name. It's a powder in a plastic container. They make a rinse aid as well, although I don't know if they still sell it in woolworths. I haven't been able to find an eco friendly brand of powder that I like in Coles.

We use homebrand tablets, really cheap and effective. Also use vinegar in place of rinse aid, doesn't get any cheaper than that!

I can't use the powder as my compartment is broken so I use tablets in the cutlery holder.. Works a treat
The best ones iv tried are from
Aldi. I think the brand is called logix?

Our friend use to work for a company that made dishwashing tabs and their lab showed that it was most effective when the tablet was just placed in the bottom of the dishwasher, not in the compartment! I just throw mine in after that!
