Are the dishes clean or are they dirty? Water spots from the dishwasher are frustrating. If you have water spots or film on your dishes after completing a cycle, a rinse aid solvent may be your solution.
1. Do I Need A Rinse Aid?
If you do see water spots on your dishes after a cycle you should consider using a rinse aid.
2. What Exactly Does A Rinse Aid Do?
Rinse aids should probably be renamed drying aids. Premium rinse aids contain surfactants, which lower the surface tension of water. Instead of forming droplets, the water rolls right off your dishes. No water, no spots.
3. How Do I Use A Rinse Aid?
Rinse aid dispensers are conveniently located on or next to your dishwasher’s detergent dispenser. Just fill the chamber to the maximum level, and close it. The rinse aid will automatically dispense during the final rinse cycle.
4. Still See Something?
Check to see if your dishwasher comes with dispenser settings. If cloudy spots, streaks or water marks still exist after a cycle, try increasing the dispenser setting. If you notice smears of foam, select a lower dispenser setting. You’ll learn the correct amount after a couple cycles. If the problem persists, refer to your owner’s manual.
That was a spot-on tutorial with a spot-off solution. We recommend refilling your rinse aid dispenser once a month.
