Prevent Lime and Scale Buildup in the Dishwasher

White spots left on your clean dishes may have you wanting to buy a new dishwasher. But what if I told you that it's not your dishwasher's fault, it's your hard water. Those white spots are actually hard water spots and they are the result of salt minerals (calcium and magnesium ions) that buildup on the inside of your dishwasher causing limescale to form. That foggy, white buildup on your glass is the result of your dishwasher rinsing with hard water. When hard water is paired with the heating element in your dishwasher, "scale" will form and begin to build layer upon layer inside your machine and on your dishes. Unfortunately scale will not disappear with time and can affect the performance of your dishwasher. You need a good way to prevent lime and scale buildup in your dishwasher.

When you suffer from hard water spots on your dishes, loading and unloading your dishwasher can take longer than expected.The internet is full of solutions to help eliminate hard water spots, but do they really work?

Lime and Scale Guard There are many suggestions on the web to help prevent lime and scale buildup as well as remove it your dishes and dishwasher like adding pure lemon juice and apple cider vinegar to every dishwasher cycle. Remember that orange powder drink Tang?  It's suggested that the acidic powder in drink mixes like Tang and Lemonade can also help reduce the buildup in your dishwasher.Yikes! Others suggest washing your dishes a second time by hand after they have already been cleaned by your dishwasher, but why use the dishwasher in the first place then? Speciality soaps are also available for purchase, but these may be costly and it is hard to know which one works best. Luckily, Joe Filter can help.
