Use Tang To Clean Your Dishwasher


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Our dishwasher is smelling and looked dirty. My Aunt told me to use Tang the powder drink mix. You only use a teaspoon and run the dishwasher on normal without any dishes. It cleans the dishwasher plus leaves a orange smell. Also, if you only use a teaspoon of dishwasher liquid soap or a 1/2 of the powder when you run the dishwasher the dishes come clean without any residue. Plus save money.

    I have always used koolaid to clean my coffeepot, use nothing to clean my dishwasher except elbow grease,, lemon juice too,, they are all just citrric acid that cuts grease, hard water scum etc..

    I wonder what effect Tang has on your stomach though, considering what it does to your dishwasher! emoticon
