This is one of my favorite tips!
Instead of buying a fancy dishwasher cleaner, use a packet of kool-aid lemonade.
When the dishwasher is empty, put a single pack worth of powder into the soap dispenser instead of soap.
Run through one full cycle while the machine is empty.
The acidity in the kool-aid works wonders on hard water stains!
And while we are on the topic of dishwashers.....here's a post about making dinner in your dishwasher!
