Tip & How-To about Dishwashers

Film on dishes; dishes not coming clean

A lot of dishwasher problems either stem from build up, hard water or the non phosphate soaps. To eliminate this as your problem take a bowl and fill it with apple cider vinegar (you want cider vinegar because of the citric acid, you can also use tang or frozen o.j) then put the bowl full of vinegar on the lower rack in the dishwasher, do not just pour the vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher because the dishwashers 1st cycle is drain so it will all just drain out. Run the dishwashers heaviest cycle with nothing in the dishwasher but the bowl of vinegar. This will clear out all the debris and hard water deposits throughout the dishwasher. If it seems to clear up your problem try changing your dishwasher soap to Finish I work at a service company and have found this to be the best dishwasher soap on the market. Hope this helps.
