Introduction: Spotless Dishes Without Expensive Chemical Products

Do you enjoy your dishes coming out of the dishwasher spotless, but DON'T enjoy the cost of the tiny bottles of product?
Here's a cheaper alternative. :-)

Step 1: Gather Your Items

- a dishwasher safe teacup, mug or small bowl (glass pudding cups and ramekins will work)

-apple cider or distilled white vinegar (do NOT use balsamic or red wine vinegars, these can stain your dishwasher)

Step 2: What to Do!

Pour about 1/2 cup of vinegar into the dish.
Depending on your water you may need less or more vinegar.

Place right side up in top rack of dishwasher.

Load your dishwasher with dirty dishes and dishwasher detergent.

Run as usual.

Let dishes dry, remove and enjoy spotless dishes.

*Edit: This is not a detergent replacement, it's a replacement for products like jet dry spot free rinse.

    It is possible, but I am unsure rimar2000.
    I've always washed the crackled items by hand rather than in a dishwasher.

    Does this work for "crackle" cups / plates? I refer those chinaware that seem to have tiny cracks under their surface.
