03 Jun 11 Siemens Lady dishwasher

This is our Siemens Lady dishwasher! This was a basic Siemens dishwasher, when bought in 1994 😉 It has only 3 programs and 1 temperature. Number 1: one cold rinse. Number 2: Intensive (2 cold pre-rinses), followed a 65°C program Number 3: Eco (1 cold pre-rinse), followed by a 65°C program. We always turn the knob a bit further, so that there are no pre-rinses at all. That works perfectly 😉 We had a party, so the dishwasher was full of glasses, cups and bowls 😉 I used a tablet of Sun All-in-1. I always use All-in-1 tablets, so that I don’t need to add salt or rinse aid. The tablet has a “hydrofilm”: you don’t need to get the tablet out of its seal, because it dissolves in the water. very handy! Enjoy 😉
