We have hard water. Like the hardest water ever.
We’ve had a new well since the fall and new well water is a bit less hard. When we had the old well, I was always amazed at how dirty looking the dishes are coming out of the dishwasher. They say that they changed the law and the dishwasher-soap-making companies had to change their formulas to comply with some new regulations. These new formulas combined with my hard water equals the grossest dishes, especially when it comes to glass and Pyrex. I decided to take on my de-soap-scumming project before I put my still-gross-looking “clean” dishes away. I used toothpaste and a sponge. I’ll describe the process in pictures.
Also, you may notice that all these pictures are closeups. Yes, my kitchen is that ugly.
