Commentary **

Since phosphates were banned (June 30, 2010) in Auto Dish products, Bio Pac, Inc. does not use phosphates in the formulation anymore. Any labels outstanding will still listing phosphates, but they have not been used on the East Coast since the phosphate rule was instituted.

States instituting the rule include Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont,Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Some areas such as Spokane County, Wash., have had such bans in place for years.

The lack of phosphates in our auto dish powder has created headaches for consumers. So far, there is no replacement for the water softening ability of phosphates. Using our product in many areas will leave a white film on your dishes, almost making them look sandblasted. This is actually a mineral coating (from your water) which can be removed with vinegar.
