What I learned was that many of the dish detergent I, had been using for years had changed their formula to remove Phosphates. If you live in an area that has hard water this can be an issue for you! (Who knew I lived in an area with hard water since this had been an additive to my products for years!)
So the solution was this amazing product called "Lemi Shine" you can find it on line, at Walmart and other distributors. (I have received no compensation for this endorsement) I just wanted to let others know of this solution, if you to have been hitting your head against your kitchen counter asking "why? is this white residue happening to me?" Well, now you can stop hitting your head, and rewashing, and rewashing your plastic dishware!!
This is a Wonderful product you just add it to your dishwasher when you are adding your detergent and it makes everything residue free! YES!!!! It really works!!
