Posted on 12/16/2010 2:18:58 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Everything is grubby in countries run by statist moonbats — even dishes fresh out of the dishwasher.
A couple of months ago, Sandra Young from Vernon, Fla., started to notice that something was seriously amiss with her dishes.
"The pots and pans were gray, the aluminum was starting to turn black, the glasses had fingerprints and lip prints still on them, and they were starting to get this powdery look to them," Vernon says. "I'm like, oh, my goodness, my dishwasher must be dying, I better get a new dishwasher."
Susan Baba from Procter and Gamble says the company had no choice. It just wasn't feasible to make detergent with phosphates for some states and without them for others.
"You know, this isn't really a huge environmental win," she says.
That's because phosphates are wonder ingredients. They not only strip food and grease from dishes but also prevent crud from getting reattached during the wash. So she says without phosphates, people have to wash or rinse their dishes before they put them in the dishwasher, which wastes water. Or they run their dishwasher twice, which wastes electricity.
A million Soviet gremlins tearing away at the American standard of living.
Noting trisodium phosphate for when we can only get GI-dishwashers.
I don’t know why enviroweenies seem to always be able to force their agenda on the rest of us but this must stop. I guess because they read neat slick nature magazines ‘n stuff. Environmentalism is basically unhealthy.
The ban that most of these state issued did NOT include commercial (resturant) and institutional users. That alone is enough proof that it is a control issue, not an environmental issue.
Buy from where they buy and you'll be OK. Also you can use on-line websites to order phosphate laden deteregent. I now buy it by the case from Amazon.
We buy trisodium phosphate at the hardware store and add one table spoon to our dishwasher when doing dishes. Now our dishes come clean and sparkle again.
Yep. Just try to buy a REAL electric blanket that warms the bed before you get in.
Some have a preheat function but you have to look carefully to get it.
The left is winning many battles.
It takes me 3 times as long to clean dishes and they still aren’t clean. Maybe our Congress could get off their butts and do something about this. I also don’t want to pay a good sum of money for good stuff only to find out I can’t get it clean and it will deteriorate due to our government.
Thank you for that tip. I’m going to try it.
Oh, you don’t want to do that. You’ll get your phosphates back, along with $1.3 million for a bug museum in NC, $48 billion for Emanual Cleavers nutjob inner cities program, repeal of DADT, spending on Obamacare bureaucracies, etc., etc.
It reminds me of the toilets that use half as much water, but have to be flushed twice.
It's okay, as any enviro-nut can tell you, the water supply is endless.
You should see some of the new ones. They actually work. One of them has a 3" drain to the bowl with a specially designed flow path. In the demo I watched, it was amazing.
Our dishwasher in our condo in Seattle broke about 7 months ago. Our farm in Kentucky has no dishwasher. Regarding the condo, we told the landlord about it but said we were fine with hand washing, which is what we have done ever since.
Seems to work pretty well, but then, we are empty nesters. And we like cooking and cleaning together.
>>It reminds me of the toilets that use half as much water, but have to be flushed twice.<<
We have those in my office building. Typically you have to flush three times (and they are auto flush, but with the little black override button), and when you enter a stall, the toilet usually has leftover paper and “stuff” in the water from the previous user.
When we were looking for a house several years ago hubby refused to consider any that had the new toilets. Said he wanted “Turd Suckers” not a toilet he had to flush three times.
*Low flush toilets
*Useless laundry detergent
*Granting Disney inane copyright extensions
Just some wonderful examples of the gubmint at work.
Intelligent idiots dictating to the 80 persent of us Americans
What’s wrong with digital TV? It is a wholly proper thing under the most originalist reading of the Commerce Clause for the national government to set standards for uses of the electormagnetic spectrum for broadcast emittters operating at frequencies where the emmissions can radiate beyond a limited radius of a few miles.
And while it is surely un-Constitutional for the Federal Government to regulate household water flows under any orginialist or near-orginalist interpretation, it happens that the regulations requiring low flush toilets forced toilet manufacturers to aggressively re-engineer and redesign outflow. Some of those toilets work better that the older big gulp toilets.
“Whats wrong with digital TV?

I never said it was unconstitutional. I said that it was a mistake. Let me explain what’s wrong with digital TV:
*Induced manufacturers to discontinue CRT TVs
*Incompatible with 60+ years worth of TVs
*Signal dropout/freeze up
*Should never have been required that all TV stations use it or that all TVs have ATSC tuners
The only real advantage is freeing up some bandwidth for HD transmission.
“Some of those toilets work better that the older big gulp toilets.”
Most low flush toilets I’ve seen release a spray of high pressure water that splatters up on you. Now do you really want to be hit with toilet water? Mind you, I’d like to know what kind of toilets Al Gore has in his house. Probably 5-gallon ones.
Digital signals don’t propagate anywhere near the distances that analog signaling can.
A good example, from the days before wide-spread fiber optic use in computer networking was 10Broad-36, which was sort of an analog version of what many people call “ethernet.” It used 2 coax cables, but you could run a distance of 3600 meters, as opposed to Ethernet’s 500 meters without a repeater.
Another example is the fact that a POTS (plain old telephone system) wiring’s local loop could go a very long distance between your home and the central office, but the very same line that carries DSL is much more limited in distance.
My local restaurant supply store sells the commercial version of Cascade with the phosphates still in it. Any good size town should have a store like it.
Yes. The analog signals would fade, but never freeze up or cause the sound to cut out. One problem is that digital transmission is at much lower wattages than analog. They could use higher power, but cell phone companies rudely demanded more bandwidth.
“OTA digital is great—when it works—but it doesn’t always work.”
Theoretically you have a better picture without our old friends Dot Crawl and Color Bleed, when as you said, it works.
“Digital signals dont propagate anywhere near the distances that analog signaling can.”
The real deal behind DTV was using less bandwidth, not reliability. They say you can have more channels, but it doesn’t mean much for OTA since you can only get a few at a time there.
Heck, I can pick up WSB AM 750 Atlanta on the radio, a station that’s hundreds of miles from where I live. I’ll bet you I can’t pick up a TV station that far away.
