My dishwasher looked so bright and smelt fresh after trying this recipe out. I jut put the bleach and vinegar in a glass pyrex bowl and ran the dishwasher empty. Will do this once a year to keep the dishwasher looking good.

I have been using just vinegar to clean my dishwasher, but this worked even better! Every so often I have problems with spotty silverware and glasses and this helped to eliminate that problem. I'll be sure to keep this tip handy. Thanks, Tish!

This worked great!! I noticed the warnings about not mixing the bleach and vinegar together and that is very important, but by following the instructions that is not an issue. After the bleach cycle there was not even a bleach smell in my dishwasher. This process leaves the dishwasher smelling fresh and looking bright and and sparkling clean! Thanks so much Tish for the tip!

Although the film isn't completely gone from my glasses, they look a whole lot better than they did before I started. Thanks for the tips

This recipe did a great job cleaning my glasses and dishwasher. Some of my glasses are so etched they'll never be 100% but this is as close as they'll get. I'll be using this periodically to keep new glasses looking new. Thanks!

I was about to buy new drinking glasses because mine were so filmy, but this did the trick. Now my glasses are spotless. Thanks for posting.

Missouri limestone is something that gets things dirty looking in a hurry. All the limestone just sets and looks awful. Its hard to remove because limestone rocks become soft after its been in water for a while. This worked perfectly. Sure beat getting in the dishwasher and a workout while scrubbing the dishwasher clean. I told my DH that it was almost easier to just wash them by hand... well not any more. Thanks!
