Hot Tip: Rinse Aid Alternative

Hot Tip: Rinse Aid Alternative

While we've discussed what dishwashing detergent is best, what about their counterpart - rinse aides? Instead of buying a commercial rinse aid, there's something you probably already have in your cupboard that works even better to get your glasses from cloudy to clear...

...Vinegar! Vinegar continues to be one of the best cleaning solutions, and it just so happens to work great in the dishwasher.

Unfortunately, even with a great dishwasher detergent, people who live with hard water may still get cloudy and not so clean looking dishes. That's where rinse aids really are handy to finish off the job and make dishes sparkle. Just fill the rinse aid dispenser with a little white vinegar, or if you don't have a rinse aid dispenser just put a cup filled with vinegar upright in the bottom rack when you run the wash.

Anyone tried vinegar as a rinse aid before?
