My Dirty Glasses
I live in an apartment and consequently have an old dishwasher. I also don’t have a water softener, so the hard city water comes straight into my old dishwasher, depositing lime, calcium, and gunk on my drinking glasses.
I went to a hardware store this weekend in search of a remedy. A very nice gentleman recommended a small white bottle (that shall remain nameless) that his wife has used to help their same problem. $6 later, I was home and excited to see the results!
…but it didn’t work. So I marched myself back to the same hardware store. The (still) very nice gentleman apologized and recommended the “big guns,” CLR. Determined to clear up my glassware, I opted for the larger, 128 ounce bottle. $28 later, I was on my way home and excited (again) to see the results!
…but it didn’t work, 5 runnings of the dishwasher later.
I’m admittedly frustrated. With the money I spent, I could have trashed my old glasses and bought new. Instead, I’m out $34 and left with cloudy drinkware.
