I wish there was a zero star option

I have used Aldi's dishwasher detergent in the past with no problems. This one was awful. It left a residue on everything in my dishwasher. Even with scrubbing, it's almost impossible to get rid of. I've spent the last day hand washing the dishes over and over. I will never buy this product again.

Works Better Than High-End Detergent

We were struggling to get our dishwasher really clean inside. There was a lot of buildup and gunk. I just happened to pick up the Reeva Automatic Gel at Aldi and my husband noticed that a few days later the dishwasher looked like I had scrubbed it out. No one had cleaned the dishwasher, though; it was just the Reeva Gel working amazingly both on our dishes and on the dishwasher itself!

Don't buy it

Doesn't clean many dishes. Left white powder residue on my ceramic dishware. Worst I have ever used. Friend says add a 1/4 cup of bleach to save it from the trash.

Good price and it works well for us

I started using this brand gel a few weeks ago. I think it does a good job. I wonder if they've made some improvements to it. I noticed some pretty bad reviews for it. Most of them looked like they were over a year old, so maybe Aldi fixed it. I do rinse or soak most of my dishes before they go into the dish washer but not everything gets rinsed. Sometimes the kids just throw whatever in the dishwasher but everything comes out fine. I had been using the powder, and I will say the powder didn't do as good of a job. I suppose it also depends on what kind of machine you have. For us the gel works much better. The price is great, but if you're shopping at Aldi you already know their prices are lower than most stores. They also only have one brand of most products, so when it comes to dishwasher detergent you're really only deciding between liquid or powder. I do think they also have the power packs now. I know I'll stay away from these. I've tried other brands, and I know those don't work well in my machine. If you're nervous about trying the Aldi brand, powder or gel, Aldi offers a guarantee on all their brand products. I believe it's a double you're money back guarantee so nothing lost if you hate it.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

Like a previous reviewer, I am an avid Aldi shopper, but this product just doesn't do a good job. It leaves either a powdery white residue or cloudiness on everything. I definitely don't plan to buy it again

It's like you didn't add any detergent - don't buy it

I couldn't believe how poorly this product performed. Used Maytag dishwasher w/o any prior problems. Tried Reeva. Result: Many dishes dirty - this never happened before, even if they were left a few days prior to washing. I had filled up both cups all the way. I had to go out and get my regular brand right away since this brand was like using nothing. Don't they know this?
