luckily we have a couple of easy fixes for you. if you're using our regular smarty dish tabs, just add a little white vinegar to the "rinse aid reservoir" in your dishwasher. it works like a rinse aid and helps the water run off, reducing spotting + filming. or you can use our smarty dish plus tablets instead. they work really well in hard water because they have rinse aid built in.
if there's a load in your dishwasher with residue on it, here are a couple ways you can remove it:
- 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.
- 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.
