Lemi Shine Review: This Dishwasher Detergent Additive Helped My Hard Water Problems
Below are quite a few Lemi Shine dishwasher booster reviews.
The original version of this booster, also known as a dishwasher detergent additive, was a powder, composed mainly of citric acid, which is added to whatever dishwasher detergent you choose to use.
The idea behind this product is that the citric acid will help deal with a very specific problem many people have when washing dishes -- hard water build up.
This hard water build up, or the film you may see on your glasses and dishes, or within the dishwasher itself, is common in areas with hard water. Hard water is, of course, water which has a high mineral content in it.
The gentle acidity within the citric acid contained in Lemi Shine is the powerful ingredient which will stop that hard water build up from forming in the future, and slowly, with many uses, lessen and remove the film and build up you have already experienced before using this product regularly.
So, without further ado, here are reviews from readers who've used it, along with pictures they've sent in showing how this product has worked for them.
I LOVE this stuff!
After several years of not being able to use my dishwasher for anything other than a drying rack -
(dishes came out dirtier and spotted because of hard water and the removal of phosphates from dishwasher detergent) - I tried LemiShine once and everything came out sparkling.
A second run of the dishwasher and the crud that had built up on the bottom from dishes draining (hand-washed) was gone.
I was blaming the dishwasher, when the problem was the hard water and lack of cleaning power in detergent - LemiShine solved the problem!
Thanks for sharing your review Bonnie.
I've gotten to use this product myself, and have really liked my results.
You can see my article about the results I got when using the pacs version of the product here. After using the pacs I actually switched back to the powdered version, because I thought it was a bit cheaper, and eventually the decision was made for me since the original powder version is still around, but the pacs were discontinued.
That means for quite a few years now I've continuously used this product in my own dishwasher, because it significantly helps remove hard water build up, and keeps it from reoccurring.
I'd love to hear from even more people who've used this product, sharing how it has worked for them. You can share your review here, and I'll add the best ones to the site!
Hardwater Film Removed From Dishes & Utensils With This Stuff!
M. Schaffer shared these before and after pictures after using this product in her dishwasher, to remove the filmy residue left by hard water on her dishes and utensils.
This film can cause glass to become cloudy, and turn normally dark colored objects much lighter. This cannot be washed or scrubbed off with normal soap, but instead something acidic is needed to remove it.
That's where this product comes in. With it's formulation, which includes citric acid, it can easily rinse such cloudiness and scale away.
It isn't always completely removed after one wash with this product, but just like it takes time to build up, with time and regular use the film will lessen and then disappear.
Lemishine Helped Remove Hard Water Scale Buildup In Dishwasher
M. Schaffer also shared a before and after picture of her dishwasher, after using this product for several loads.
In the before picture you can see that there is a lot of build up of minerals, caused from hard water.
She explained that "the scale buildup could not be removed by scrubbing."
However, after only 3 uses of this product much of the build up was gone!
There is, of course, as a dishwasher cleaner made by this company which I (Taylor) have personally had success using to also remove this scale and build up. You may want to use the two in tandem!
I will say, however, that if you regularly use the Lemi Shine dishwasher detergent booster and additive, than you most likely won't need to clean your dishwasher as often, at least not for hard water and scale build up. That's because the same power of citric acid that keeps your dishes looking good also simultaneously works on the inside of the dishwasher itself.
I'd love to hear even more reviews of this product from those who've used it. You can share your reviews here, or read others that have already been submitted.
