How to Get Rid of Film on Dishes

10K Shares

When we moved into our home, I was so excited to finally have a dishwasher for the first time! However that excitement quickly faded as I discovered white film on dishes and glasses as I removed them from the dishwasher.

I tried so many different detergents hoping one would work and leave the white film off of the dishes. However, every detergent I used left behind a white film and some didn’t even clean my dishes very well.

I thought, “What is the use of having a dishwasher if it won’t clean my dishes!”

But I didn’t give up and 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. You can also download the recipe totally free here: DIY Dishwasher Detergent.

 

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

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!

I really didn’t want to have to throw out my DIY detergent, and I didn’t want to have to revert to buying more from the store.

I searched and searched for a solution to my filmy dishes. 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 and no white film on the dishes.

I have continued to add the vinegar and dish soap with each load, and the dishes look great. Problem solved!

This is the same glass bowl as the picture above. All I did was put it back in the dishwasher (white film and all) and used the vinegar and dish soap. It came out crystal clear!
