Every now and then a topic I write about in this column hits a nerve with readers. A few months ago, I wrote about my
quest for clean dishes. Apparently, I wasn’t the only person frustrated with grocery store dishwasher detergents and
how awful they made my silverware, glasses, and dishes look, and, in fact, actually damaged them. It’s easy to think that this could be a hard water problem common to where I live and write my column.
But because Living Space is carried in newspapers in several states, I know this isn’t the case. After writing this column, I received a landslide of letters and emails from readers unlike anything I’ve seen in the two years I’ve been writing the column.
Unfortunately, due to an email glitch, some of your emails went unanswered for two months and I apologize to anyone who wrote inquiring about the dishwasher detergent that saved my dishes and cutlery. I finally did get around to answering the accumulation of over 600 emails and provided ordering information for the product. So, you should have had your email or letter answered in the past month.
Your experience counts
This follow up is because I’d like to know if you ordered the Neu dishwasher liquid, and if so, what do you think about it? Please drop me an email or a letter—I promise it won’t take me two months to respond — and tell me about your experience with this product. Who knows? I might just feature your feedback in an upcoming column.
In case you missed my dishwashing saga, you can read it on my website at http://tinyurl.com/yo58tp. If you go to this page, you’ll also find a link to the cleaner to order it for yourself. Or, you can go to the Neu products website directly at healthyhomecleaners.com and order it online.
If you’d prefer to call their customer service number to order their automatic dishwashing soap via phone, the number is 262-238-5576. Neu automatic dishwashing liquid is the only dishwasher soap I use in my dishwasher and I won’t use anything else. If you order it, please say I referred you.
From time to time I feature products in my columns and when I’ve found a product that I believe gives superior service in helping you keep your living space more, well, livable, I want to tell you about it. These are products that I use in my own home and can recommend without hesitation. Personally, I don’t like wasting money, but more importantly, I don’t like wasting time.
I kid my husband that his name, Tim, is an acronym for my “time is money” philosophy and that’s why I married him. As I find more of these products, I will be sure and share them with you. And, I’d like to make a deal with you. If you purchase any of the products I recommend, be sure to tell me what you think of them. I’d like this column to be a two-way communication as much as possible.
This week, I’m traveling to New York city with my son, Steven, in honor of his eighth birthday and then I’m off a week for a family vacation. So, if you send me a note or an email, I promise I’ll get back to you after I return in June. In the meantime, thanks for having me in your home each week and allowing me to share my living space with you. It’s a privilege to share my home with you and I hope you enjoy reading Living Space as much as I enjoy writing it.
