I'm using the Cascade "with Dawn".

Should I go and empty the shelves of my local supermarket??

Why would people throw away dish sets??? They forgot how do their dishes by hands from time to time?

Too late for that.

They've been on ebay for the highest bidder since July. Did you even read the article I quoted?

I did, but my Cascade is from about a month ago. That's why I asked about the 6.4% phosphate in mine. Is this the old one or the new one?? I might find more of the same in my local store.

Been off the shelves here for quite a while. Should be fairly easy to see on the glasses what you've got. Mine are coming out crystal clear once again with the lemon juice

Update: Got weighed at WW this morning at 7:15. Nothing dramatic, but a solid 1.6 loss. Total now of 7.4 lb. Still over 200 but I have a good chance of leaving the 200's by next Saturday.
