    Yep Heather is right, Vinegar! I just learn this today from a lady at Whole Foods, tried it and it really works.

    I use vinegar in mine also, but I can honestly say, it doesn't work quite as well...but for the price difference/savings--it'll do.
    That being said, I read somewhere...but don't remember exactly where, vinegar isn't actually good for your dishwasher and/or lines...snap, wish I could remember what all it said and where I read it...

    From the jetdry website (http://www.jetdry.com/faqs.shtml): JET-DRY® products are a special combination of nonionic surfactants, a chelating agent, dye, and fragrance* (*for our fragranced products).

    Basically, what that says to me is that Jet Dry is purely an acid. I'm currently testing Citric Acid (powdered) dissolved in water and running the dishes through to see if it works as well or better. I'll post results later in the week.

    I was wondering about your experiment with the citric acid...how did it go?

    I've actually got a recipe that calls for a bunch of packs of lemon flavored kool aid-the unsweetened kind...don't remember where I got it from though.

    Not yet..I was waiting for feedback from others.
    I'm seriously thinking about trying it.
    The recipe I've got also calls for kosher salt and the lemon kool aid...along with the usual ingredients.
