NY Times Story Asks: How Clean Are Your Dishes?

How Clean Are Your Dishes? Phosphates pose a threat to aquatic life and can end up in drinking-water reservoirs. In response to new laws, more and more makers of dishwasher detergents are reducing the amounts of phosphates in their products. But, according to a recent article published by The New York Times,Cleaner for the Environment, Not for the Dishes,” consumers claim their low-phosphate detergents aren’t getting the job done. Launched in 1991, Shaklee Basic-D® was the first patented phosphate-free dishwashing cleanser. Today, our Shaklee Get Clean® Dish Washer Automatic Powder Concentrate is a patented, high-performing, phosphate-free dishwasher detergent. Its enzyme-activated formula removes tough stains without the need for prerinsing, leaving dishes sparkling clean. Shaklee Get Clean products do not contain phosphates—and never will. Shouldn’t everyone you know be using a phosphate-free dishwasher concentrate that leaves dishes sparkling clean? Contact your Shaklee Independent Distributor to learn more about Get Clean products that are both safe for the environment and effective. Help us get the word out by sharing this with your friends and family—they’ll thank you for it!
