Dishwashing Mystery

Can anyone explain why my beloved 99¢ plastic tumblers from Wal-Mart looked like this when they came out of the diswasher?!

So far I've come up with these ideas:
  • It's Ectoplasmic and my dishwasher is haunted.
  • There's a new finger print powder that's white; and my dishwasher was the scene of a crime.
  • Shawn tried the "dry wash" version for dishwashers.
I just gagged a little bit.
  • really need to wash my hands before I unload the dishwasher.
  • My dishes are totally rough-housing in there once I close the door!

That's all I've got.  Does anyone have a more logical explanation?!

P.S. Don't worry.  I'm still gonna use them. (Did you not hear the "beloved 99¢ plastic tumbler" part?!) Unless it turns out to the the "dry wash" thing. *shudder*

Handwash only? Treat the same way as your Waterford

Probably need a little jet-dry. Looks like hard water build up to me.

Michael - that could be the end of my relationship with these cups. I don't love them enough to handwash!

Kathryn - i HAVE jetdry! my dishwasher gives me a dirty look and a bright red light when the jetdry is low. i think my dishwasher hates me.

Run a dishwasher cleaner through it -- cheap stuff you buy at the grocery store. Jet dry is not solving that problem. Also add vinegar next load - literally just throw a cup or two in the bottom when you are about to turn it on. You can thank me later.
