There's no instructions on the bottle. Useful!! Anyone know how to use it? I can't find anything on Google.

If it's the blue boxy bottle you have to peel off the label, exposing the waxy plug.
Put it in the cutlery basket pointing down and run the empty machine on a hot programme.
Empty the dishwasher debris traps before and after.

I just throw some soda crystals into my washing machine to clean it.

Is it liquid or powder?

If powder just bung it in the drawer and run on a minimum 60c cycle.

If liquid then soak the detergent drawer in a sink of warm water with some of the liquid added. Use a bit on a cloth to wipe round the seal. Then add the drawer back in and pop the liquid in the detergent drawer on a minimum 60c wash.

That's the usual routine anyway, I've used a fair few brands over time!
