15c a tablet for logix platinum dishwashing tablets. Hope it is useful for some.
Washing ma plates for 15c (+ water + power) is def useful to me. Thanks buddy.
I just loaded up on fairy, but if I’m near an Aldi, I’ll grab a few boxes of these. Thanks for posting. I’m sure it’ll help many.
How's the performance compares to fairy platinum. Been using fairy for last two years.
My experience is that these work very well - best bang for buck out there
Woolworths brand one is $0.12
@Turn it Out: Cool, but are they any good though? The Aldi ones are.
@R4: I'm currently using the woolies one and they're working just fine. No residue and they deliver a good clean.
@Trishool: +1 For the Woolies ones
@R4: they've been good for me. choice rate them higher than ALDI as well
Nah, Coles Ultra Concentrate Dishwasher Powder @ $4 per kilo is the best value out there, I've back to backed this with logic and its better and very much cheaper.
For what it's worth, my wife thinks these are garbage compared to the proper ones
I bought ones from Aldi although don't remember the name but the cheapie ones so I assume this brand and thought they performed worse than the Woolies cheap brand. Haven't bothered buying since.
tried getting these last time and always were cleared lol
And I'm down to 3 tablets… I guess there will be a night of hand washing
Dont do it. our dishwasher just broke, new one delivered Thursday. the last two night of hand washing has been hell
I used my last tablet last night. Guess who's eating and drinking with paper utensils for the next few days
Thanks for sharing. These are apparently good. Fairly are my go to for best clean though
I've heard they are "Fairly" good.
Here you go, CHOICE Magazine top 6 rated dishwasher tablets as at August 2019: https://imgur.com/a/Urk9g5B
FYI, these ALDI Logix Platinum come in at 7th with a 70% score.
I'm shocked they didn't do a rating for discolouration of clear Tupperware on spag Bol night.
Someone needs to write to the edition, stat
The eternal struggle
Top rated was 77% 2nd & 3rd place were 73% and 4th 5th and 6th place were 72% interestingly Aldi platinum falls down in the red wine and coffee removal scores if you remove these the scores between 1st and second are 84.75 and 84.5
Yeah but which ones cleans best at best value for money?
Earth one likely to be expensive. So the only choice is Coles vs Woolies vs Aldi one
It's unclear no price comparison
We need price to rating ratio
Those are the cheaper tablets in the image, did they test the Platinum outside of that?
Yes, as I mentioned, the Platinum came 7th. I could only compare and screenshot the top 6.
Ah sorry, missed the "top 6" part.
not accurate, the ones in the link are Aldi Logix Complete. Not Platinum
Yes accurate, as I mentioned, the Platinum came 7th. I could only compare and screenshot the top 6.
@Rowdy Roddy Peeper: All good, it wasn't a trap :-)
I have been using Earth Choice (#1 Choice pick) for a couple of years and found them really good. Thought that I would try the Aldi Logix Platinum recently and found that they are not as good with some cutlery coming out stained and occasional plates not washed properly. Will go back to EC once the box is finished or even try the Coles Ultra+ which I used on a holiday last year and they worked well.
The way i read the Choice review is consider what your dishes are covered with when choosing. For example we use Tumeric a lot and would need a tablet that can tackle turmeric stains well
Yes, you could look at it that way as well. Then you need to combine it with CHOICE's recommended dishwashers to have a super combo cleaning machine!
WARNING: There was a trap with the last bulk pack of Logix Premium I bought.
The 'normal' Logix Premium comes in a soluble wrapper that you just place in the washer and go, the bulk pack were the same tablet but wrapped in a non soluble wrapper which made for some fun and games when the old and new supply all got mixed together in a storage tin.
More than once I found the bulk pack Logix tablet sitting in the bottom of the dishwasher completely preserved by it's insoluble wrapper. :(
Will not buy again if the wrapper is not soluble.
This. I always buy normal instead of platinum for this reason.
Edit: Box now seems to say dissolvable wrapper for Platinum.
I also fell for this but I do believe they have changed them since this funny enough most of our dishes appeared as clean even without the tablet working
The last two bulk boxes I bought had soluble wrappers.
the non soluble bulk pack was sold last year or so, this year they changed to soluble already
These are VERY good. Then again we always rinse under tap.
Just need to remind everyone at home that you don't unwrap them.
I never understand people who don't rinse.
But why rinse?
Our reason is that it stops food sticking to plates whilst waiting for a wash (scraping isn't sufficient or we don't want to waste a rinse cycle ) and we believe that the machine requires less maintenece cycles to stop the machine from smelling like an open sewer. We run the finish dishwasher cleaner every 4+ months.
We bought an ASKO dishwasher six years ago when we did a Reno. It literally washed the pattern off some plates we own. Absolutely no need to rinse.
raise under tap before or after the wash?
If I understand your question - only before
If I didn't understand your question - afters only
Doesn't rinsing defeat the cost savings of using a dishwasher?
@imaDOOFUS: My in-laws pretty much wash the plates prior to dish washing.
@imaDOOFUS: Two seconds for each plate? Hardly.
If you mean people spending upwards of 10 then probably.
I always raise off the food scrap before putting them into the dish washer, find that the water at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean and the grid doesn't have much scrap on it after week worth of wash
@SnoozeAndLose: Need to upgrade your cook if you have food left on plate.
No need to rinse plates then.
@dheywood: Tell this to the kids, I always cook more for them just in case.
I don't rinse by tap before running a wash but do remove obvious loose food etc. I'm lazy and believe in the filters so keep them clean.
I did however run a comparison of cold vs hot inlet temps as my dishwasher can take inlet water up to 60C which is what my hot water system is set to - 400L external tank, about 5M (via pipe) from the dishwasher. I'm an Engineer so (sadly) think like that.
Using hot water was way better than cold, presumably because the pre-rinse cycle running with 60C water took away most of the dirt to start with.
It's been running this way since 2007 and zero issues. People often say that some food items will actually bind if you rinse at that temperature but not in my experience. (egg, cheese etc)
I've also been using the Aldi tablets (both versions) for several years now and zero problems again. I just place one in the cutlery basket where I know it will get sprayed. I find that the pre-rinse is too quick to dissolve much of the tablet, only really the wrapper.
Aldi tablets work fine, both versions in fact so buy what's on offer. Reviews seem to confirm this.
A warm pre-rinse works better for me. Opinions vary, but I can see the logic of melting and then flushing all the easily melted oils/fats ahead of the main wash cycle. It works for me.
I would hate to have an oily, eggy plate washed in exclusively cold water. Blegh!
Do these taste as good as Tide Pods? Need my fix.
They don’t look as tasty
These are crunchier
I'm not a fan of these dishwasher tablets. Mine seem to get stuck in the dispenser when the wrapper starts to dissolves and sticks. I end up opening the dishwasher to see the tablet fused in the dispenser.
I don't put the tablets in the dispenser.
The dissolvable wrapper is designed to dissolve at the correct water level/temp. Just chuck them in where they'd naturally fall from the dispenser.
My dishwasher has a pre rinse cycle that I cannot disable. If I were to put it straight into the washer it will dissolve and drain before the proper wash cycle started.
I never put them in with the disolvable wrapper. I always remove it and never had an issue for years now and my dishwasher is 10+ years old.
Just throw it on the bottom of the washer
Those little tablet drawers are a PIA
Try putting it into the cutlery rack/holder. Works great for me and zero residue anywhere.
Are these good for cleaning bongs?
20-30 min in boiling water, dont let it boil dry.
Metho and some rice. Rinse thoroughly. Good as (almost) new.
Logix complete are rated higher and cost 14c per tablet everyday?
Yeah, I don't get the Logix either.
There is no logix to it
What's the normal price?
I will do investigation and let you know.
Sombody was saying they cut these in half is there enough cleaning power still for a load?
Must be the supreme leader of OB
7.5c per load achievement unlocked!
We generally scrape plates before loading them into the dishwasher
We used to cut the Powerball originals; we'll prep a whole box at a time; they worked fine
I find the Aldi tablets they are more 'powdery' when you cut them; I think they'll be fine if they don't disintgrate before you use them ; but you might not want to process a whole box at a go
Your next mission is to cut it into thirds and see how that goes lol
Actually, with the Powerballs we used to do that ; just because of the 'ball' made it sometimes break into 1/3 : 2/3 instead of halves ; so we'll cut up the 2/3 into 1/3 as well. Didn't notice the difference; as it those cleaned just as well too
@utopia: Haha I like where this is going. Are you going to experiment with one quarter?
@montorola: Unlikely; those were the considerably more expensive Powerball days.
Prices have dropped and Aldi Logix Complete Dishwashing Tablets 30pk ; there's a lot less impetus to do so.
I only cut a few up as a test for Josho and found that they were more 'powdery' once they were cut compared to Powerballs - from memory
@utopia: utopia you are a legend, thankyou for doing this for me:)
@montorola: While you're at it you might as well re-use mouthwash. Surely its good for 3-4 uses before it loses its effect!
@montorola: Actually I tried washing with no detergent, still clean.
i've been doing it for a while but for half load.
I use the powder. You only need per wash 20grams so one kilo gets me 50 washes. And they are less than $4
Also the Woolworths one is the same (sometimes I buy it when I get 10%off from Woolworths, so works out cheaper than the aldi one @$3.60)
Dishes come out very clean
Given the percentage spread between 2nd and sixth is a near negligible one percent, which product is the cheapest per use?
hopefully i can stock up on these - dishwasher gets a good work out, pretty much twice a day
I see no difference using this product vs Fairy.
This and nappies are what I buy from Aldi best value
I find Aldi ones leaves some kind of powder on the dishes. Have changed to fairy platinum & no issues.
Yep. Bought these for mum (probably not the premiums) and she hated them (think it also scratched her glassware). Bought the fairy and it was a soap bomb that tainted plastics with faux lemon.
Don't think she'll give these two a second go anytime soon.
Which tablets are best for glasses/tumblers? The fear of cloudy glasses is really getting in the way of a good nights rest!
Comparison of Complete vs Platinum from Choice
Can anyone comment on the Aldi Sterling Stainless Steel dishwasher MODEL: STR-SSDW14 @ $349?
