Removing Dishwasher Rust Stains

Here in the country we see our share of well water carrying a heavy burden of rust, and it often shows up as an ugly brown stain completely coating the inside of a dishwasher.

A good cure for this is citric acid, and I used to sell expensive little packages of it that we got from GE. However, I’ve not been doing that since discovering this alternative.

If your dishwasher’s interior has become more brown than white or stainless steel, pick up a jar of TangÔ instant breakfast drink. Fill the detergent dispenser with it and start your machine on a ‘normal wash’ cycle with no dishes inside. (Remember to run the hot faucet at the sink first, to ensure the dishwasher’s first fill is with hot water - see the January 2004 DRSNews)

Once the machine has filled and started to wash, open the door and throw 2-3 tablespoons of Tang into the water and let the machine run through a cycle.

In some cases this has to be repeated and another cycle run, but the results can be dramatic. Doing this on a regular basis before the staining gets too bad is probably a good idea if your water suffers from high iron content.

Try it - it works!
