I just got a new dishwasher and it recommends using a Jet Dry type of solution for best results. Is there a way to make a homemade or very inexpensive solution?

Fill your rinse dispenser with plain vinegar - no need for expensive rinses. Your dishes will shine and so will your dishwasher.

Does anyone have a recipe for the Jet Dry that goes into the dishwasher to remove spots from glassware?

I usually add 1/2 cup of vinegar in my dishwasher. Since I have been doing this, I have not had a problem with water spots on any of my dishes. (03/11/2008)
Put white vinegar in the JetDry dispenser. Don't put it IN the dishwasher with the soap as it will make the detergent less powerful. The vinegar will cancel the detergent out. (03/12/2008)

White vinegar - I fill the reservoir with it and it works better than Jet Dry! (03/12/2008)
Thank you all. What a simple solution. Do you need to fill the JetDry dispenser each time? (03/12/2008)
No need to fill every time. Just fill to capacity. If your dishwasher has an indicator when the rinse aid is empty, you'll know it's time to refill! (03/13/2008)
You say that Vinegar removes spots on dishes, but does vinegar dry the dishes too? How does Jet Dry dry the dishes? It amazes me how it can do this! (10/22/2008)
