The reason that vinegar's OK for your coffee maker is b/c you are running two water cycles afterwards.

Taxlady, I love you!! My dishes have no spots, and my glasses are shiny!! I used a 12 oz glass full of vinegar, and I plan on filling it up every time I run the DW.

I already rinse my hair with vinegar every time I wash it--I will just add an extra bottle to my cart.

If there is a Costco near you, you can get 2 gallons for a little less than $4.

The vinegar will do a good job of removing most deposits and is much cheaper and environmentally friendly. Not to mention the fact that you probably keep it in the house already anyway. It also works great for coffee pots and clothing steamers. Probably works on steam irons too but I don't think I know many people who use those any more.
