Cleaning Mineral Deposits

Cleaning Mineral Deposits Left on Dishes

Is your water hard or is there a high mineral content in your water?

  • Use liquid rinse aid. This will help to eliminate spotting and filming. Keep the rinse aid dispenser filled.

  • Use fresh dishwasher detergents only and never use less than 1 tablespoon per load. Heavy soil and/or hard water generally require extra detergent. If using detergent pacs or pods, use only 1 pac per load. Follow manufacturers instructions for pac use.
  • Clean your dishwasher every month with affresh® dishwasher cleaner to keep residue buildup in your dishwasher.
