Tang in the Dishwasher

The repairman was by this morning to replace the motor in our dishwasher. He suggested we use Tang every once in a while to keep it clean. Yeah, that Tang. THe powdered drink mix. He said it’s the citric acid.

Kraft doesn’t quite endorse the idea. But they don’t discourage it:

We have heard that some consumers have used TANG? Drink Mix to clean their dishwashers. TANG? does contain citric acid which can act as cleaning agent.

TANG? Drink mix is intended to be a food product and Kraft Foods does not advocate its use for any other purpose.
