Lemi Shine. A Dishwasher Miracle.

I recently had a major problem with my dishwasher that I've never seen before. It started leaving a very thick, white film on all of my dishes. So thick that I couldn't wash it off. I tried a dish brush, different soaps, soap pads, everything I could think of. All I could do was scrape it off by hand or soak each piece in vinegar. But as soon as I ran it through the dishwasher again... I was back where I started. 

I ran the dishwasher with lemon juice, vinegar, and lemon flavored Kool-Aid. I even went so far as to have a repair man come out. He changed the heating element and we thought that solved the problem. Wrong!

It was so bad... the dishes looked dirty all the time and I was embarrassed to have company use them. After a few more weeks of this, my husband called the repair man again. Thankfully, the girl on the phone knew what the problem was and recommended we try Lemi Shine. We'd never heard of it before but my husband found it and asked me to give it a try. I was reluctant. I'd tried so many things I was just done with the whole thing, but I tried it just to make him happy. Boy, am I glad I did! This stuff really works!

Look at the photos below. I couldn't believe how well it worked so I took pictures. I figured no one would believe how bad it was to begin with and how great Lemi Shine worked.
Pretty gross, huh?

Can you believe it? Just like new! :)

This is one tip I had to share with all the other moms out there. I wasn't paid or asked to review this product. It's just something I found that works the way it should and I wanted to pass it along. If you decide to try it, please check your local grocery store first. It is sold online, but it's priced much higher than what we found it for at our neighborhood market.

And that's my tip of the day!

God bless!

Mary Ann, I will tell you why the dishwasher soap is suddenly not working, because I had the same problem! Terrible white film.... They have changed the chemical makeup due to the EPA. (It wasn't "green" I use lemi shine now too, I have to otherwise the soap doesn't come off. So now you know the rest of the story....Lori

Hi Lori - I had no idea, but that explains why it happened all of a sudden. That's why I thought my dishwasher was broken... I was ready to quit using it. Thanks for telling me, it's nice to know why. :)
