For all us non multi-tab users 99p for 4kg of branded dishwasher salt. Spotted at the Ashford branch.

Also worth stocking up for the winter, this stuff is great on icy paths.

How is branded salt better than non-branded salt though?

It was in the Reading 99p shop on Saturday as well. I was going to get a box but its heavy to carry .

Just quality really, some lesser known alternatives could contain anti-caking agents which could ruin the softener in your dishwasher

Fair enough - but if you really want to cut your salt cost by a factor of 15, apparently you can use water softerner salt.

Why would anyone not use a multi tab just out of interest? Sorry if that sounds a bit ignorant, just wondered if there was any benefit to buying the salt and detergent separately.

I was told that even if you use the multi tablets you should still use salt.

The heating element is what is most likely to get scaled up. If your dishwasher has an exposed heating element, check it for scale - I wouldn't worry if there isn't any. I've tried two types of tablet; one seems to prevent scaling and one doesn't, but I've only used one box so far.
