My sis-in-law up in Seattle did a blog about how her dishes were not coming clean in the dishwasher anymore. I can totally relate - phosphate taken out of dishwasher soap. Not good news for those of us whole live where they make the elemental phosphorus. My friend on facebook had a similar post and someone told her to get Lemi-shine. I thought - ya right - it won't help, but I was wrong. We went to Walmart - picked some up - ran it through the empty dishwasher - and then loaded it to try again. It made a big difference, and now that I have been using it for a week it is amazing. Even my silverware and stainless steel pans look shiny. I highly recommend it!!
