As I have stated in my tip for laundry detergent, if you are using a powdered dishwasher detergent STOP! Powdered detergents can turn to 'grease' in your sewer lines - a fact from a plumber! Always use the liquid type detergent in your dishwasher (I like lemon-scented Cascade). Use up the rest of your powder, diluted in water, to wash furniture or car upholstery or TOSS OUT. Much cheaper than a plumbing bill!!
