Getting white residue off of dishes

For some reason we have been having trouble with our dishes becoming white.

Some reasons for white residue is:
Hard water
Too much detergent
Detergent not disolving properly

We are going to try this but says to soak your white residue dishes in white vinegar for 30 mins then rinse and dry.

Ways you can help prevent the whiteness:You can also put 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the dishwasher when starting a load. (they said to put it in a cup/bowl in the top rack).
Sometimes you can run the water in your sink to heat up the water in the dishwasher when it goes.
You can also try running the dishwasher with no dishes to help clean it as well.

  1. We have had the same problem for about 6 months, Elise. I found that the gel packs (detergent and liquid together work quite well). I also ran my dishwasher with vinegar and it also worked great. All detergents now contain phosphorous, which is why everyone gets the white film.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I read every single one and thank you for stopping by.
