Trolling Lifehacker this a.m.,  as I sometimes do, I found this article from 2009,  Top 10 MacGyver-Style Cleaning Tricks, and one tip jumped out at me …. Clean the Dishwasher with Kool-Aid, (originally posted by Real Simple)

Pour a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid (the only flavor that works) into the detergent cup and run the dishwasher while empty… The citric acid in the mix wipes out stains, so you don’t have to.

I have heard of, or tried some of the other tips … salt to clean up a yucky spill, baking soda & vinegar to unclog a drain, toothpaste to get marker off of the walls … but I have NEVER heard of Kool-Aid in the dishwater … Oh Yeah!
