Get the Most Out of Your Dishwasher

Nobody wants to set a dinner table with cloudy glassware or dishes that aren’t 100% clean. Family and friends notice these kinds of things! Here are a few tips to help your dishes, glasses, pots, etc. look their best:

Cloudy Glasses

While your dishwasher may be to blame for cloudy glassware, there may be other causes as well.

  • Too Much Detergent – Cloudiness or etching on your glasses could be caused by using too much detergent. Try cutting the amount you use in half.
  • Gel Detergent – While gel detergent is a trend, it’s not always the best for your dishes and glasses. The gel can sometimes leave a residue that can cause cloudiness. Change to a powder or tablet detergent and see if that helps.
  • Hard Water – Depending on where you live, the water coming into your house can be hard, meaning it has a high mineral content. These minerals can build up over time, leaving a film on your glasses. You can get a water hardness test at your local hardware store to see if this is the cause.
  • Water Drainage – The food your dishwasher gets off of your dishes can build up and clog your dishwasher’s drain leaving you with dirty dishwater. Take a look at the filter and drain area and remove any food build-up you might find. You may need to replace the filter if it’s damaged.
  • Water Flow – There may be a problem with your dishwasher that restricts water flow. We have a help page that can help you troubleshoot this issue. Also, make sure your water temperature is at least 130°F, most detergents need hot water to work best.
