    Default lemi shine

    It works! I asked for ideas about streaky dishes a few days ago and some one
    suggested this product. I had never heard of it nor noticed it in the
    store. Kroger had it and I have used it about 5 times and it really does
    work. I still don't understand why all of a sudden I started having a
    problem of film on the dishes but at least my dishes look okay now. Thank
    you very much. I have been helped in the past by this group and I am very
    grateful once again.

    Wow, I was just going to look to find the name of this product that was
    mentioned here because sort of suddenly a couple of my drinking glasses
    look cloudy. Thought I'd give it a shot before replacing them. They don't
    look etched. Good timing, thanks.

    I'm glad you've endorsed it too, because I noticed that some of my
    liqueur glasses are getting cloudy. I'll look for it too.

    I Googled this stuff and I think I'm going to buy some. According to
    their map, I live in "very hard" water area. I do have a whole house
    softener, but I think that makes it's own problems, too.

    I have been running Tang through the empty dishwasher a couple of times
    a year, but this stuff seems like a better alternative.

    isn't this stuff just another brand of Lime-A-Way?

    Juts buy a bottle of citric acid at Whole Foods. It's a lot
    cheaper and contains about 150 doses of the fufu packaged stuff.

    That's why I use Tang. No Whole Foods around here.

    No. It's not a chemical, it's made with fruit acid.

    Phillis, I first posted about Lemi-Shine back in January, 2009, in
    response to another poster's problems with the same issues with their
    dishwasher. More recently, sf posted about it in response to another
    poster, mentioning my earlier recommendation.

    I'm still using Lemi-Shine in each load of dishes, and have been
    doing so for several years. I've found that I don't need to use a
    rinse agent anymore.

    I'm really happy that it's working foryou!

    All manufacturers of automatic dishwasher detergent removed the
    phosphates from their products starting July, 2010. One of the reasons
    for it being there in the old detergent was to prevent a cloudy film
    from forming, just as you describe. It's getting really hard to find
    anything with phosphate in it anymore.

    You can get Citric Acid at many places that have bulk bins or
    health foods. Or any any upscale market that sells "sour salt".

    The Mexican markets and ghetto quickie marts also sell something
    originally called "Lucas", a kids candy that comes in small shaker
    bottles at 3/$1. Those are about 33% citric acid. Tang must be
    less than 10%. Probably closer to 5%.

    Is it sold near the canning supplies as well? I think Certo has a
    high concentration of citric acid. But that may not be any cheaper
    than the stuff sold specifically for dishwashers.

    Anyway, point is that the stuff sold specifically for dishwashers
    is ridiculously overpriced. The raw ingredient is much cheaper.

    Citric acid is "chemical" :-) It's the same ingredient in
    "Finish!" for dishwashers. Most likely the same thing in Lime
    Away, too.

    Any acid would work. But citric acid is the safest and most
    powerful. Acetic acid is usually watered down to 5% as vinegar and
    not as effective.

    Still plenty of it in out food (especially deli-type meats).

    Has there been a ban on phosphates? If there has a been a ban, I'd
    worry about where China is going to hide all those industrial
    phosphates now.

    On a case-by-case basis. It's been banned in laundry detergent,
    dishwasher detergent and TSP (used to prep walls for painting), that I
    know of. There are probably other individual bans too, but not a general
    overall ban.

    Maybe they'll use them to bulk out their melamine exports :-\

    That's interesting, and I didn't know it. Here in AZ, with or
    without phosphates, the water is so heavy with minerals that a haze
    forms on everything you put in the dishwasher, and will eventually
    ruin many things, especially glassware.

    A water softener would solve most of the problems here, but where I
    live I can't install one. Lemi-Shine has been a blessing. We also
    spray a solution of Lemi-Shine in the shower after each use to
    prevent any buildup of mineral deposits.

    OOOOHHH!! Thanks for that! I was so puzzled, why are my glasses
    looking cloudy anymore and they never were before. I didn't think
    it was etching. I'm going to give the lemi shine a try and I hope it
    solves that problem.

    When my mother lived in the outskirts of San Diego county, her water
    was hard and she had a water softener, but it didn't keep the water
    from clouding her glassware anyway and stepping up her
    washer/dishwasher replacements. Just sayin'.
