Hi new in town. You can find the following dishwasher consumables at Migros:

https://produkte.migros.ch/sortiment...eschirrspueler

Can also find similar products at Coop, Volg, Aldie, etc..

PS: Never ever use dish detergent (unless you have a mop)!

Here we dont feed our dishwashers with tabs. We use beer, free beer, to clean our dishes.

Re: Dishwasher Tabs?

Don't buy sun products, they are useless. I am happy with Somat and Calgonit.

I have used Sun products and they were fine.

What you need to be careful of is using all-in-one tabs rather than separate items. The Miele repairman who serviced our previous dishwasher said he does not recommend them. Some diswashers have a setting and if you use these all-in-one tabs you need to set the dishwasher accordingly.

Our guy from Siemens does not recommend them as well as they often have trouble dissolving in time to do any good. His recommendation: buy the top of the line powder from Migros (or other). The Migros stuff is CHF 9/package. Often on sale at 50% off.
