I thought it was a pretty simple task. I loaded the dishwasher, and I got out a little pod of dishwasher soap to put into the machine. (Yes, the pods are similar to those Tide Pods people use for their clothes.) (No, I have never tried to eat one of the dishwasher soap pods. I'm not stupid.) (Yes, I am stupid. But I'm not that stupid.) (Yes, I keep the dishwasher soap pods out of reach of the children.) (No, I don't think they would try to eat them, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.)
Unfortunately, for our combination of dishwasher and hard water, we need to add a "dish detergent booster" in with the dishwasher soap pod, or our dishes end up with spots and hard water stains on them. I had finished off a bottle of the stuff on my previous load of dishes, so I needed to open a new bottle.
|Lemi-Shine Dish Detergent Booster! |
(It works...if you can actually get into the bottle.)
Easier said than done.
|"Tear Here," it says.|
|I couldn't tear where it said, "TEAR HERE."|
|Take the lid off to get to the seal.|
|Sealed for your protection. (And aggravation.)|
Once I got this seal off, I was worried there might be yet another seal to deal with. Nope! I could actually get to the product! Now, all I had to do was put the lid back on, open the pouring spout, and add my dish detergent additive to my dishwasher.
|Ready to pour!|
