Home Wisdom: Vinegar in the Dishwasher!

Left glass is before vinegar--Right is after!
Home wisdom tip of the day...

Many people, I'm sure, already know this, but for those that don't, I wanted to share this bit of knowledge I learned today.

Jon and I recently switched our dishwasher soap to this awesome toxin free soap from The Honest Company! It was great the first month we used it! Then I started noticing this gross white film on all of our dishes. We kept running the dishwasher because we thought the dishes weren't clean... I finally had enough of it and started doing some researching. Turns out, that awesome toxin free stuff can create mineral build up in the dishwasher because it's not using those harsh cleaning agents that are in most common dish soaps! A little inconvenient, but there's an easy fix... Just add in some white vinegar to the dishwasher after the soap dispenser releases the soap and Voila! Clean dishes! :-) You can also run a vinegar cycle on your empty dishwasher to help clean up any extra build up you may have in there.

Clean and toxin free! I never knew what caused that stuff! Maybe this little bit of info will help some of my friends who also didn't know :-)
