“Hi there, just wondering if you coulp please ask your network of mums for some help….. Of late my dishwasher is leaving a milky coloured stained around the rim of some of my glasses, its actually about half a centimeter down from the actual lip of the glass but it encircles the whole circumfrance. Dishwashing liquid wont get rid of it. I dont want to throw glasses away but its really unsightly. Any suggestions on how to clean it off and what might be causing it?”

Ask your question
  • What did you end up doing to remove the milky stains


  • Some really great answers there.


  • Run your dishwasher with finish cleaning products on an empty cycle and it may help


  • We use vinegar here works great :)


  • A good clean and a wash with rinseaid should help


  • Give it a good clean out run it on with a hole bottle of white vinegar emptied into it really. And clean your filters .. Give a really good lean .. They need a bit of lovin tooo.


  • BEST WAY TO CLEAN A DISHWASHER THATS NATURAL….. BICARB SODA 2 TEASPOONS OF EUCALYPUTS OIL BOTH IN THE TABLET / POWDER DISPENSER. FILL THE RINSE AID AREA WITH WHITE VINEGAR AND DO AN EMPTY WASH. (OBVIOUSLY CLEAN FILTERS ETC PRIOR)


  • a good rinseaid and a decent brand of tablet helps, also making sure you are cleaning the filters etc regularly!


  • Great to know if I ever own a dishwasher.


  • Give the dishwasher a full clean, and be sure to remove any food or scraps caught in the tray at the bottom (our dishwasher has a little catch area for that) I use finish powerball tablets and rinse aid and never have a problem with them. Maybe try brands and see how you go?


  • Hope you managed to get it sorted out!


  • Have u u changed ur tablet? Sometimes the tablets are not as good as others for cleaning the dishes! My sisters leaves a foggy look on all her dishes!


  • Have you cleaned out your filter?


  • So many useful tips Best of luck


  • Hope you were able to solve the problem
