Monday Mention: Lemi Shine

Photo: The green, white, and yellow bottle of Lemi Shine 

A month or so ago, I noticed that my dishwasher wasn't doing its job. Glasses were coming out dull, and white powder coated plastic items. Since the dishwasher was new, I was a bit perplexed. I checked to make sure the drain was clear of food. I checked to see if I needed to refill the rinse aid. I tried a different detergent. Nothing seemed to help, so I turned to Google. 

I found a product recommendation: Lemi Shine. I had never heard of it. I bought some and hoped for the best. I'm happy to report that it works! My glasses now are crystal clear, and everything comes out clean. 

I'm thankful that I could find a solution to the problem! 

(This post, though it reads a bit like an advertisement, was written with no compensation of any kind to me. I just wanted to share what I had found, in case it would be helpful to you.) 


  1. That white stuff on your glasses is hard water residue. With a water softener it goes away. Or with a slightly acidic product like Lemishine or plain old vinegar.

    1. Vinegar is definitely a wonder, but didn't quite do the trick for me in this case.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Action-Packed Week, but in a Good Way

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
