Officially "Awesome" because Frotter said so!

So recently I either found out about the needless use of clay as a bulking agent in washing powder (washing machines) or had previously forgotten this unnecessary element  ...does this apply needlessly to dishwasher powder too therefore?

I'd previously assumed powder (in it's cardboard packaging less harmful than liquid with it's solid plastic packaging.

Spent yesterday draining the washing machine & cleaning the 4 stupidly pointless beds for the waste flow (butler sink & washer in the utility room) before reassembling & testing, today I'm tweaking the pipes fall to help the matter (it is very shallow).

Am I really to understand that powder is denser in order to satisfy consumer perspective or is there more to that?

& therefore what is the solution for the layman to de-sludge (prevention of pipe gunge) by use of which soap based on packaging  & performance?
Note: we use half the advised qty, wash cold / 30 degrees & do a 90c boil maintainance wash regularly to flush the machine of dog hair / gunk etc.

On the scale of things therefore, powder or liquid which is less damaging / lesser footprint?
