Why? I always have vinegar in the house.

Again.No Dishwasher?

Timothy, a former member who is sadly deceased, turned me on to Lemi Shine. It works well.

Vinegar doesn't have any properties to it that makes water run off glasses and silverware. Go ahead and put just vinegar in your rinse reservoir then.

The topic was cleaning the dishwasher. Vinegar cuts grease and is a disinfectant. And, um, gravity makes water run off glasses and silverware

I don't have any problems with my dishwasher, so I don't think I need to spend extra money for that. I think it's just one of those things that manufacturers convince people they have to buy, like twelve different kinds of cleaners (exaggerating only slightly).

Which one is cheaper?

I was considering throwing a couple of sliced lemons into the machine. My neighbor has 4 lemon trees, so lemons are free.

Lemi Shine (the powdered form) used in a cycle is very good at removing accumulated hard water buildup on glasses and utensils. It's quite a bit more effective than less expensive vinegar. Lemi Shine also removes overall hardwater build up in dishwasher.

Edit: I meant to say that using cleaned glasses and utensils in a cycle and running it with just powdered Lemi-Shine removed a lot of fog build up. I had to run two cycles using Lemi-Shine powder, but I noticed it took off a lot of build up on glasses and utensils. Better than just pouring in vinegar.

Yay! Soon your dishwasher can take over the "swish the dish" job! Isn't it nice to have someone reliable fix things? Between our dishwasher and our refrigerator, over the life of their warranties we've had quite an assortment of service techs. I'm always happy to see the Good One.

Glad to hear you'll have a working dishwasher soon Chef Munky.

We can live without them but life is easier when we have them.

I'm happy to report that I just installed a Bosch unit from 2011 pulled out of a demo we just did.

It replaces an "on it's last legs" Maytag I had.

I do gotta say, Those Bosch dishwashers might be pricy but this thing is quite as a church mouse and does a fine job of getting the dish's clean.
