Okay ladies,

I keep getting this white (possibly lime deposits) all over my dishes when I put them in the dishwasher. I have tried jet dry with no luck on fixing the problem. I even tried to do an empty cycle with CLR in it, but that didnt do the trick either.

Will Vinegar work? Have you tried it ? Heard anything about it? Is there another option?

Please help. :)

Try cleaning your dishwasher, like this...


Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and remove stains. *Do NOT under any circumstance do both steps together, unless you enjoy huge messes in your kitchen, if so carry on.*

You can also put vinegar in the thing where JetDry goes.

Yes it does work. You can also use lemon juice in it too.

I usually use the dishwasher cleaner so I don't know. I would think it would work though.
