Here’s a quick tip – don’t fill both soap receptacles in your dishwasher with soap. Just fill the pre-wash one (and don’t even fill it completely). This means that you use half as much soap and your dishes get rinsed twice, assuring that all detergent residue is gone. For a bonus, use an environmentally-friendly detergent. We use Seventh Generation. (Conventional dishwasher soap is full of crazily-toxic chemicals, both for you and the environment, specifically the Bay for us.)
We’ve been doing this for about a month now and our dishes are just as clean as they ever were!
