Dishwasher leaving you cloudy? Lemi-Shine Review

We have been hand washing dishes for ages. One fine day, last year, my husband bought us a


. It’s new and efficient and I thought it would make things so much easier. I was thrilled.

Well, a few washes and I was going nuts. I tried several detergents, top rated and non eco-friendly too (I’m awful, I know!).

No matter what I did, my dishes were cloudy and sometimes not even clean. I was cursing it all of the time because I would try a new combo, more detergent, less detergent, rinse aids, vinegar, washing my machine, you name it. I had to wash my dishes after they had been washed. It was infuriating.

I knew there just had to be a remedy. I got online and search, search searched. I found a couple of really happy people expressing their love for


, but they were just a few random comments on questions that people had posted. I looked it up and found that it is all natural. It is

phosphate free

and composed of

natural fruit oils and acids

. I figured it was worth a shot.

I headed to the store and picked up a bottle of


. It was just a few dollars, though at that point I’m not sure I’d have cared what the price was.

I was a little apprehensive on my first try, but I loaded up the dishwasher (not pre-rinsing) and then put in my detergent tablet and in the same compartment, I added about 1/2 tablespoon of



The clouds parted!

Seriously, it was AMAZING. My dishes were crystal clear. I couldn’t believe it. Before, my glasses were so cloudy. It was awful. My dishes now look better than they do when I hand wash them.

I’ve tried it with a few different detergents and it works great with any of them 🙂 I always run a full load too. No skimping!

I like tablets, so I stick my tablet in, put in about half a tablespoon or so of


and then run it! That’s it. I don’t even use a rinse agent. If you really want something in there, toss some vinegar in the rinse aid compartment. I haven’t done that in months though.

Not only can you use this (and get amazing results) in your dishwasher, but it has

other uses too

. You can use it to clean your toilet bowl, coffee pot, shower door, garbage disposal, and more I’m sure!

I was so tempted to run a load without


, but thankfully they had a user submitted photo that illustrates exactly how well it works without me having to hand wash a load of what should be clean dishes. I’m terrible, I know. The cloudy dish is exactly the problem I had with every detergent I tried. It was awful.


If there is outrage that I didn’t feel like rewashing a load of dishes, I will take my own photo.


What’s funny is that the cloudy glass looks exactly like my glasses. Weird!

I love this stuff so much that I want everyone to try it. I *love* getting great green products out into your hands. I know that if you just try it, you’ll love it too.
