Citrus To Remove White Buildup on Dishes

It was either throw out my apple shaped dish, and several others if truth be known, or figure out how to get that ugly white film off of them. Elbow grease is not my favorite way of doing anything so desperation took over.


I read everything I could and citric acid kept coming up. Well Fruit Fresh is basically citric acid and I happened to have some so I gave it a try. I put around 2 tablespoons in 4 cups of cold water and immersed my apple dish in it, 5 minutes later I checked it. I couldn't believe my eyes it was sparkling clear. No elbow grease needed. I dried it and put it in the cupboard looking like new. You must try it to believe and save your elbows!

I have to try this--but in the meantime if you don't have any Fruit Fresh but do have Mr. Clean liquid cleaner--use that ---works great--I filled up the cloudy glass with hot tap water and a couple of capfulls of Mr.


Clean---5 minutes--perfectly clear glass!

Get a large container of citric acid on (Cheapest way - lasts forever. Add to detergent cup of dishwasher...50/50 soap to powder....end of problem. I do this with every load.

I will try all of these suggestions. My glasses look like they are full of milk when they are empty & my stainless steel flatware is white. I considered using silver polish on the stainless but thought I would try these suggestions first.
