white spotting or leftover residue is really annoying, but sometimes it happens if there is hard water where you live.

the easiest fix to prevent this for future is to use a rinse aid (our sister brand, Ecover, makes this one: https://us.ecover.com/products/rinse-aid/) to reduce spotting + filming.

if there's a load in your dishwasher with residue on it, here are a couple ways you can remove it:
  1. start the dishwasher again. stop the program after the pre-wash + drain, when you hear it start to refill with water. open it, dump in a cup or two of white vinegar then start it back up again.
  2. put white vinegar on a sponge and use it to wipe the dishes, then rinse them immediately. this is only safe for stainless steel or plastic sinks, don't try it with enamel or porcelain sinks.
