Secret to sparkly dishes..... Vinegar


Simply the cheapest and multi purpose item out there.
I get mine at Costco, I go through it pretty fast.
There are so many ways to use vinegar, but the one I wanted to share with you is for the dishwasher.

We put a old coffee cup in the bottom rack of our dishwasher and fill it
up with vinegar every time we run the dishwasher.
It took about a month and I was starting to question wether is was working or not.
Let's face it that is a lot of vinegar to use if it is not going to work.  But one day,
it was a load of beautiful sparkly dishes like on TV.  I wanted to note, I do use it with the dishwasher tabs.
The other day I didn't have any vinegar.  Can you believe I ran out.
So I did a couple  loads without it.  My daughter was unloading the dishes and asked,
"Mom why do the dishes have this filmy stuff on them?" UGH.
Lesson learned, it works.  We have hard water, the vinegar helps keep the lime down.
This week I started using it in every load of my washing machine. 
We will see how that goes.
