I was about ready to go back to Cascade for the dishwasher! I tried making my own detergent, an utter failure. So I buy the "green" brands, tried several but they all seem to leave a nasty film. Most recently I'm using 7th gen, and I wasn't thrilled with it either. I started using vinegar in the rinse aid compartment and it makes such a difference! I do have to fill it weekly, but vinegar is $2.50 for a gallon, so it's still the cheapest option. I may give the homemade dishwasher detergent another try now that I've figured out how to get them to rinse clean.
