How do you get this white cakey looks like sidewalk chalk off my dishes?

I put my dishes through the dishwasher they come out clean but with this white filmy layer on my dishes. Can I use something in the dishwasher to stop it? I don't want to ruin the dishwasher so what are your suggestions? I use eco friendly dishwasher liquid no phosphate in the the liquid.

  • Jet dry goes in the door of your dishwasher, in a special compartment, you cant put it in the soap despenser area,( in case you weren't sure). I also use the dishwsher tabs, not the liquid or powder...

  • You may have hard water. Try Jet Dry (a rinse aid) ,Seventh Generation makes one, or you can use white vinegar.
    Hope that helps.
