This didn't cause any build up in our dish washer! All cascade dish soap leaves a thick coat of powdery white, but this soap kept everything nice and clean! Wonderful recipe!

This works great. It is cheaper and gets my dishes cleaner.

I used plain borax in a pinch, and dishes came out fine. I still bought Cascade, for greasy dishes, but for plates and glasses only, just borax works fine.
