A Dish Wash Gel is made for use in the various commercial and residential places. The gel is similar to the washing up liquid used for hand-washing dishes. Like powder, it is poured into the dispenser in the dishwasher. It tends to sit in the middle in terms of price between powder and tablets. The gel effectively removes food that's been stuck on for 24 hours, including baked-on messes and greasy residues. The Dish Wash Gel is specially formulated to operate in dishwashers, unlike washing up liquid that should never be used in machines as it can cause excess suds to form, and damage dishwashers permanently.
