Cleaning Your Dishwasher With Kool-Aid
Sunday, May 31, 2009
About a year ago I wanted to clean my dishwasher and looked up a few ways on the internet. I learned that you can run the dishwasher with a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid to clean it. I have been using lemonade Kool-Aid (or off brand) in my dishwasher for a year now, and have liked it. It doesn't get it perfectly clean, but it is better off than doing nothing and it is easy to do. Just pour a packet into your detergent dish, close the lid and run your dishwasher. I looked it up on the internet and found an article about it at Real Simple. You have to use the lemonade flavor because it has citric acid in it and it is the citric acid that removes the stains. If you tried any other flavor you could have a real mess on your hands. So stock up on lemonade Kool-Aid while it is on sale this summer!
