I had an odd thought this morning (well, more odd than usual)  as I loaded up my dishwasher and put the detergent into the container.

All detergents fit all dishwashers.

Coming from a background in telecoms, where standards groups get together and work out mutually compatable standards, this shouldn’t surprise me – but we are in the midst of the Blue-Ray and DVD HD format battles right now where companies still don’t realise that standards lead to benefits for everyone.

I wonder if the domestic appliance market has standards body which dictates the size of dishwasher detergent capsules, or was it just random chance that they all ended up the same size?
