Jet Dry Alternative- Household Recipes

Anyone know another product to use instead of Jet Dry in my dishwasher? I have been going without for a while, and was hoping to find a cheaper alternative. Thanks! Jennie From: "Jennie Bondelie" Date: Fri Apr 28, 2006 3:32 pm Subject: Alternative to Jet Dry?

    You can also use vinegar. Just pour it in where you put the Jet Dry.

    Default Steam Cleaner Shampoo


    One of our friends (who owns a steam cleaning business) said to do 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water in place of your steam cleaner shampoo.

    We do this, and it works surprisingly well. However, we still have to treat spots differently.

    I use Watkins's dry dishwashing detergent, which is less expensive
    than most and works fine. I discovered this when 20/20 did that
    profile on a severely handicapped man (Bill Porter) who worked very,
    very hard as a door to door Watkins salesman. Like me, many, many
    viewers wanted to know if he had a website. He didn't, but Watkins
    wasn't stupid, and hastily got him one. I had never before used
    anything from Watkins, but have been ordering from them ever since
    (several years) and have been thoroughly delighted with everything
    I've ordered. Plus they have a 100% money back guarantee, and free
    shipping on orders over $75. This is Bill Porter's website, where I
    always order (and I've been unfailingly pleased with everything)

    Exclamation Re: Jet Dry Alternative


    For the Jet Dry Alternative Watkins brand dry dishwashing detergent =

    I know this is an answer to an old post from 2006 I found a google search but still felt the need to correct a wrongly given website

    It was a website for Bill Porter, the now famous, Independent Walkins Associate.

    The correct website for him is http://www.billporter.com

    that will take you to his Walkins Website. This man is now 75 or 76 years old and still selling Watlkins Products.

    the website given before was for the corporate site only and nothing bought there gave credit to Mr. Porter. Like many others, I only buy my products to support him. He can no longer walk door to door and makes all his sales via his website on calling his loyal customers. This guy has been a real inspiration to me.

    So go look at his site for this great Jet Dry Alternative

    Thanks Maxine

    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'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.
