Recipe for Windows Cleaning with Jet Dry
Does your dishwasher leave film on all your dishes? One reader complained that although their Jet Dry worked at one time, that it was now leaving a film on all their dishes. Is there a better alternative?
Yes, there is! You won't believe this, but it is white vinegar. Plain, white vinegar poured into the Jet Dry compartment of your dishwasher. Will it harm your dishwasher? No! You will find it is actually cleaner than it was before. It works to remove buildup in your dishwasher and also helps remove the film from your dishes. Our readers below seem to agree.
Tip #1: You need to run a cycle empty with vinegar, maybe two and then your jet dry will work again.
Tip #2: Try using 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the rinse cycle. This also helps to deoderize the dishwasher and clean the lines.
Tip #3: I have a perfect solution to your problem try cleaning your dishwasher with Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner with lemon. I used this product to clean my dishwasher and it worked perfectly. The reason you are having this problem is because sometimes all dishwashers get clogged up with grease and mineral deposits. This cleaner will remove grease, residue, limescale and mineral deposits throughout the entire dishwasher, leaving your dishwasher smelling fresh and clean. This product comes in a green box that has lemon written on the very bottom right side of the box. It comes in a pouch with 2 to the box. You may be able to find it in the liquid form but be sure it says lemon on the bottle. This product can be found at any Wal-Mart Supercenter or any grocery store that carries it in your area. Be sure and clean your dishwasher with this product every month to keep it from happening again. The instructions are on the back of the box on how to use it. I hope this helps to solve your problem.
Tip #4: I have a relatively new dishwasher that was cleaning, but leaving a film on clear glass. I was told by a repairman to look at the heating element and, if it appeared to be white coated and not dark, my problem was probably buildup because of the Florida water and using too much soap. I didn't believe him! He advised me to use a dishwasher cleaner and then begin to use only 1 teaspoon of Cascade complete soap per dispenser. I did this and the cloudy film did not occur for a year and the dishes were clean. Someone else in my family started doing the dishes and the buildup came back. I repeated the cleaner and advised this person to use much less soap. The film has not returned for several months. Now I believe the dishwasher repairman! And I haven't needed to buy dishwasher soap for more than a year.
