Attention disgruntled dishwashing people in the US. If you happen to be pissed off with the sudden ineffectiveness of Proctor & Gamble’s Cascade dishwashing powder, don’t worry, it’s simply they have stopped using phosphates in the ingredients. Which is basically, the cleaning agent! Reason? 16 states have banned the use of phosphates due to it’s fish killing properties so the company have complied and removed it. Hmm, problem is, now the powder does jack shit.
