Dishwasher leaving you cloudy? Lemi-Shine Review

affiliate disclosuremedical disclosure

We have been hand washing dishes for ages. One fine day, last year, my husband bought us a dishwasher. It’s new and efficient and I thought it would make things so much easier. I was thrilled.

Well, a few washes and I was going nuts. I tried several detergents, top rated and non eco-friendly too (I’m awful, I know!).

No matter what I did, my dishes were cloudy and sometimes not even clean. I was cursing it all of the time because I would try a new combo, more detergent, less detergent, rinse aids, vinegar, washing my machine, you name it. I had to wash my dishes after they had been washed. It was infuriating.

I knew there just had to be a remedy. I got online and search, search searched. I found a couple of really happy people expressing their love for Lemi-Shine, but they were just a few random comments on questions that people had posted. I looked it up and found that it is all natural. It is phosphate free and composed of natural fruit oils and acids. I figured it was worth a shot.I headed to the store and picked up a bottle of Lemi-Shine. It was just a few dollars, though at that point I’m not sure I’d have cared what the price was.

I was a little apprehensive on my first try, but I loaded up the dishwasher (not pre-rinsing) and then put in my detergent tablet and in the same compartment, I added about 1/2 tablespoon of Lemi-Shine.

The clouds parted!

Seriously, it was AMAZING. My dishes were crystal clear. I couldn’t believe it. Before, my glasses were so cloudy. It was awful. My dishes now look better than they do when I hand wash them.

I’ve tried it with a few different detergents and it works great with any of them πŸ™‚ I always run a full load too. No skimping!

I like tablets, so I stick my tablet in, put in about half a tablespoon or so of Lemi-Shine and then run it! That’s it. I don’t even use a rinse agent. If you really want something in there, toss some vinegar in the rinse aid compartment. I haven’t done that in months though.

Not only can you use this (and get amazing results) in your dishwasher, but it has other uses too. You can use it to clean your toilet bowl, coffee pot, shower door, garbage disposal, and more I’m sure!

I was so tempted to run a load without Lemi-Shine, but thankfully they had a user submitted photo that illustrates exactly how well it works without me having to hand wash a load of what should be clean dishes. I’m terrible, I know. The cloudy dish is exactly the problem I had with every detergent I tried. It was awful.

*If there is outrage that I didn’t feel like rewashing a load of dishes, I will take my own photo.* What’s funny is that the cloudy glass looks exactly like my glasses. Weird!

I love this stuff so much that I want everyone to try it. I *love* getting great green products out into your hands. I know that if you just try it, you’ll love it too.
