    Default Make your dishwasher run like new

    I found out that the dishwasher cleaners that are sold at the store
    are made of citric acid. You can buy this at the drugstore, etc. It
    is used for canning. It is citric acid crystals or "sour salt".

    In a pinch, you can also use about 6 packets of unsweetened lemon
    kool-aid. Don't use other flavors as you may stain your dishwasher.

    The citric acid will remove rust, soap residue, and limescale
    deposits.

    Older dishwashers may require two treatments.

    So, Do you just run it through on an empty load? I just move into a place
    and the dishwasher definitely needs help.

    You just put about 2 tablespoons in the main detergent cup or wait
    till the main cycle is running (about 15 minutes). Yes, you run it
    empty.
    Mine was full of hard calcium deposits, even the water holes were
    clogged on the spray arm. It breaks it all up.

    You can also use tang but you should fill both cups when you start the
    dishwasher. Next time I might add vinegar, my dishwasher is a work in
    progress.
