Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern with the white film left on the dishes from the hard water.

The deposits are a direct result of the manufactures of the detergent having to remove the phosphates from the dishwashing detergents.

Core Issue As of July 1, 2010 all dishwashing detergents are made without Phosphates, as per local, state, and federal laws. With the new Non-Phosphate detergent customers may see more issues with a white film in the dishwasher and / or on their dishes. This is more noticeable in hard water areas. Resolution If the customer is using bottled gel detergent or a boxed powder detergent, it is recommended to switch to a gel pack or an all in one tablet Note: Gel pack and all in one tablets offer the best cleaning performance. Using rinse aid will also help minimize spotting and filming on dishes.

How to remove film from dishes:

Pour two cups of White Vinegar into a bowl. Place the bowl in the bottom rack. Run the dishes / glasses though a complete cycle without detergent. Re-run the dishes / glasses though complete cycle using a gel pack or all in one tablet to remove any left over vinegar. I can sympathize with you because we are having the same problem and we have tried a product called Finnish Quantum power ball and also in a blue flat container is the treatment for the dishwasher that you put in the dishwasher wax plug down without any dishes, and it will help clean out the mineral build up in the dishwasher. These seem to work very good in our area; maybe they will help you also.

You may have to do use the cleaner once a month like we do because of the hard water.

There are other products now on the market that may also work as well. You will need to experiment to find out what will work best for you.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

This has become a very common problem. Your dishwasher is not broken....don't call a repairman or buy a new machine! The white film is probably hard water deposits. This happens because many state governments have banned phosphate as an ingredient in detergent. So detergents don't work as well as before. Here's a solution that's all natural and contains no phosphate. www.CitriClean.net

Thank you Jody for your information on the hard water deposits on dishes. There are a number of products on the market similar to the product you are promoting. I happen to like a product called Lemi-Shine which is also a citric acid based product. If your CitriClean is in a retail market I would try it to see how it works. Sam A.

Hi Sam - We don't have any retail accounts yet. So far, retailers have balked at our green packaging so none have been willing to carry it. And we use food-grade dehydrated orange peels as a key ingredient. Even in Florida, it's difficult to buy in small quantities. So we have some hard decisions to make!

Thank you for your response on the dishwasher additive. I think it is a great idea to keep the product as natural as possible. Do the water bottles that you recover and reuse contain BPA in the plastic, because if they do there are some parts of the country that will require a discloser statement to that effect? We have had a number of questions about BPA's in the plastic material and I would have a concern about effect of your product would have on the plastic water bottles with that formula concentration. It may have no affect but it is something I would be concerned about. I would really like to try your product to see if it will work as good as or better than Lemi Shine. Sam A.

Great question Sam. I know that exposure to BPA occurs almost exclusively through our diet. I don't know about any regulations that require a disclosure statement when the packaging of a cleaning product contains BPA. Are you aware of any? I have stored CitriClean in bottles for months at a time without any degradation of the bottle. But I will keep examining the bottles for problems. I'd be happy to send you a sample of CitriClean.

Thank you for your response. It was a question that one of the other technical experts asked me to ask you. So no I do not know of any, but it could be a snag for you in some states. It is good to know that you have stored some in bottles for a long time with any problems of leaking. I thank you for your generosity but I will have to refuse on the grounds of accepting and or promoting products without corporate approval. You might want to contact the dishwasher engineer at the corporate office at Sears in Hoffman Estates Ill. Thank you so much for your offer. Sam A.

I don't know the composition of the packaging of Lemi-Shine, but I bet it contains BPA. I'll keep researching the question. Thanks for the suggestion to contact Sears. Do you happen to have a name or other contact info that I could use?

Thank you for the update. I am sorry but I do not have any contact information for Lemi-Shine. I would have to look on the bottle to see if there is any contact information listed. Sam A.
