I HAVE THE SOLUTION - A SHOT OF VINEGAR!
I have a stainless steel dishwasher and the inside really shows that nasty white residue. I tried changing detergents and using different rinse agents but nothing was helping. I had read you can pour a bunch of vinegar in the bottom and run an empty load and that helps, but then my sister, Tracy, told me she puts a shot glass full of vinegar in her utensil basket when she runs her dishwasher and that takes out the residue in the dishwasher and on your dishes.
So I tried it. It doesn't get rid of all the residue in the dishwasher immediately (because mine was pretty nasty), but after about 5 times of doing it - NO RESIDUE! And my glasses look clearer than ever!
I always have vinegar on hand, if you don't, start keeping it around. It has many uses - I'll blog about more later!
