Dishwasher soap?

We are renting points to stay at BWV in January. I know there is only one individual box of laundry soap. Is there enough dishwasher soap to run the dishwasher a few times in a week? Any other tips for supplies that we might not be aware of? Thanks for your help!

They provide individual packets of soap for the dishwasher. You get 2 or 3, but can get more if you have a large group and run the dishwasher more often.

If you run out, call housekeeping and they will bring more.

Dishwasher detergent is provided in small powder packets. We normally only use part of the packet so it lasts 2-3 loads. Only reason they don't provide larger packets or boxes is guests tend to take unused quantities home with them, which drives up the supply cost.

I think we had about 3 packets of dishwasher soap just last week. They did replenish on the trash and towel. If I've need more I usually leave a note for housekeeping the day of trash and towel.
Just a little tip, I've used a packet of dishwasher soap and a little bleach to clean the jetted tub before we use it. There've been a couple of times black gunk came out of the jets. Probably, hadn't been used in awhile. I just fill, put the packet of dishwasher soap, bleach, run the jets, and fill again and run the jets to rinse. The bleach, I just put it in a small plastic bottle and then into a couple of baggies and pack it in my suitcase. Never had a problem.
You'll have sugar and creamer in the unit, but no seasonings like salt and pepper. We used to pack those types of things until we got our Owner's Locker, which we absolutely love.
I always pack dryer sheets, regular flat bottom coffee filters, coffee and tea bags.
Hope this helps

Plenty of toilet paper, facial tissues and paper towel. If you need more just contact housekeeping.
