I think he means this product. I bet it doesn't do dishes well.
I'm not sure how it gets thru the rinse cycle.

I use finish dishwasher crystals, not sure if you get it by you but it works great.

I also put my dishwasher on once a month without any dishes in it, put bicarbonate of soda in the soap dispenser and let it run a full cycle to keep odours out.
An open container filled with bicarb placed in your fridge will absorb bad odours too. Just don't use the bicarb again!

I use a full gallon of vinegar in the dishwasher once a month. It dissolves all the buildup that gets on the element and keeps the inside of the dishwasher sparkling clean. I put the vinegar in the machine, turn it on for half of the first cycle and then shut it off before it drains and let it sit overnight. Turn it back on in the morning and let it finish and the inside stays looking brand new.

Hey snip, I've been using an open box of "Arm and Hammer" in the fridge since I was a kid. You're right, it works real well in keeping the fridge smelling nice.

I'll try your vinegar idea :) Just a bit stingy with my vinegar, I use it for my pickles! I'll buy some spirit vinegar, cheap junk..lol!

I use the cheapest vinegar I can find. I think it's about $1.50 a gallon. When I'm doing a large load of glassware, I put a cup full in the machine also. It makes the glass come out cleaner.

Good Morning, btw! To bed at 2am and up at 6am...I see a nap in my future!

Look what lively conversation we had after I got off-line!

It sounds like no one has used the 12 wash insert yet. I guess I'll have to be the first one ....

I'm gonna try this (baking soda). At times, I've taken a clean glass out of the dishwasher and filled it with purified drinking water. Up raising the glass to my mouth to drink, I smelled on odor not coming from the water, but the glass.

Wouldn't that mean your dishwasher isn't rinsing correctly? I usually run a Quick cycle but if you find soap and yuck in your glasses, why not use a Regular or Heavy cycle ?
