How to Get Rid of Film on Dishes

Do your dishes come out of the dishwasher with a nasty white film? Check out how to get rid of it by simply using comon household items!

When we moved into our home, I was so excited to finally have a dishwasher. However that excitement quickly faded as I tried detergent after detergent. Every detergent I used left behind a white film and some didn’t even clean my dishes very well.

I finally tried Oxiclean Extreme Power Crystals Dishwasher Detergent*, and LOVED it. The problem was it seemed like I was buying it every month which was getting expensive. I decided to give a DIY detergent a try. Here’s a video of the DIY Recipe.

At first, I was so disappointed with the outcome. There was a white film all over my dishes from the salt. It was worse than with the store bought detergent!

I really didn’t want to have to throw out this detergent, and I didn’t want to have to revert to buying more from the store. I searched and searched for a solution. Finally, I came across Jillee’s One Good Thing. She suggested adding dish soap and vinegar to the load. The vinegar helps disintegrate the salt on the dishes.

It was a miracle worker! My dishes came out so clean. I have continued to add the vinegar and dish soap with each load, and the dishes look great. Problem solved!

 

Get Rid of Film on Dishes:

1. Add 2-3 drops of dish soap to the detergent.

2. Add 1/2 – 1 cup of vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher.

3. Run the normal dish washing cycle.
