This a Public Service Announcement, so that in the future, no one has to suffer the ridicule and humiliation I recently had to take from my husband. (Of course, the worst part is that he didn’t actually SAY anything ridiculing or humiliating, he just had to smile at me).
Anyway. The PSA.
In the future, when you are at Sam’s Club, and you are looking dishwasher detergent (because you are 100% OUT of dishwasher detergent),and you are contemplating that big jug of brand-name dishwasher detergent, but then you notice right next to it, the Member’s Mark dish soap, that’s cheaper, plus it’s phosphate-free…
Make sure you read the label to make sure it is actually dishWASHER soap. Not just dish soap.
Because you dishwasher will not like it when you load it up with regular dish soap.
On the bright side, you’ll have enough dish soap for your children to use for many years of happy hand washing.
Some day soon, I promise to get back to posting things about quilts and knitting and other crafty pursuits, but for now, I thought it was important to make sure that none of you make the same mistake I did.
You are welcome,
p.s. luckily for me, the dishwasher was fine, it just had to run a 2nd cycle to clear all of the suds out. and there were a lot of suds.
