Thrifty Thursday – Kool-Aid

If cleaning weren’t enough, somehow we find ourselves cleaning the appliances that clean other things like dishwashers, washing machines and vacuum cleaners. The dishwasher seems to create most of the problem, leaving water spots and streaks on the plates we eat off and the glasses we drink from. Although there are many products on the market to clean your dishwasher some can be very expensive.  Yes vinegar works in the rinse cycle, but who knows when that rinse cycle starts??? We found a cheap option that will help to keep your dishwasher clean more frequently.  Kool-Aid…Yup that’s right! The lemonade flavor Kool-Aid (or generic brand) helps to keep the inside of your dishwasher clean.  So grab a few packets of the drink mix the next time you are at the store and start cleaning.  Just pour the powder into the soap dish and run a regular cycle in an empty dishwasher. It MUST be the lemonade flavor. The acid in this particular flavor is the only one that seems to work. Happy cleaning!
