quick tip: dishwasher rinse aid

Easy projects can freshen up your home & be inexpensive, too

Like I said last week, I am on this ‘new kick” of Homemade Cleaners to help save money and to clean more efficiently than most store bought cleaners. (Really it’s the SAVE MONEY thing!) And I love sharing all these goodies that I am finding out there to help me (and you) save money!

Homemade Dishwasher Rinse Aid

1. Place a small cup in your dishwasher’s top rack.
2. Fill with a small amount of white vinegar – the exact amount really isn’t important but don’t go overboard… ½ Cup or so
3. Run dishwasher as usual.

Piece of cake right? And you can’t image how sparkling clean your dishes and glassware come out after the wash. *Forget about that “Put the vinegar in the Rinse Aid Compartment of your Dishwasher”. Because, guess what, that acidic vinegar will eat the rubber seal and components of your Rinse Aid Compartment and will never be released into the rinse cycle. Yuck!
