If you use Electrasol dishwasher soap, you'll be thrilled with this trick.
Unwrap about 10 of the little tablets.
With two hands ... thumbs and index fingers working together,
simply push and snap the tablets in half.
The little red ball usually stays on one side or the other,
but sometimes it separates from both pieces.
I alternate using the half with the red ball one day
and then the red-less half the other.
Don't worry ... be happy!
I have been using a half tablet of Electrasol for years
and my dishes come out just fine ... for half the price!!!
Oh I should confess that is was my dad who originally gave me this tip. He used a hack saw to cut them in two though.
Toooo much unnecessary work for this girl!
I hope that I made your day with this tip :o)
