Kool Aid to Clean Your Dishwasher
Lemonade Kool Aid can be used for more than a refreshing beverage.
It can also be used as a dishwasher cleaner.
The secret ingredient is the citric acid. It works to remove lime and hard water build-up from inside the dishwasher. It can even help get rid of the rust stains.
Make sure to buy the unsweetened lemonade Kool-Aid. (generic Brands work the same) It has to be the Lemonade Flavor only because of its citric acid content.
Empty your dishwasher, you will want to run a cycle only with the lemonade.
Empty the entire single package of Kool-Aid into the dishwasher detergent dispenser.
Run a full cycle on normal/heavy wash.
The lemonade Kool-Aid will clean as the dishwasher runs through the cycle.
After the cleaning my dishwasher has less lime build up.
So, I am happy to do this every month or two, also going to try cleaning the toilets with Kool Aid.
This hack was super cheap as the store bought dishwasher cleaner runs right around $7.00. The Lemonade Kool Aid was 24 cents.
