Dishwasher Usage Instructions:

  • NB Before first use, run an empty cycle with vinegar or citric acid to clear away any deposits that have built up in your machine, otherwise these can be loosened and redeposited on your dishes when first switching to this product.
  • Ensure that your dishwasher's salt compartment (normally located in the floor of the machine) is topped with plain salt (sodium chloride).
  • Fill the dishwasher detergent dispenser (1-2 tablespoons) and wash as normal.
  • Use a solution of citric acid, citrus-infused vinegar cleaner or regular white vinegar as a rinse aid to avoid cloudy streaks on glassware.
  • Clean your dishwasher's filters regularly.

Other Uses:
