How do you get rid of the film left on dishes from low-phosphate detergents?
After running the dishwasher, there is a white film left on some dishes (pots, pans, and plastic). It doesn't completely rinse or wipe off. Is there something I can add to the dishwasher to improve this?

It may not be a film at all. If you can wipe it off with a wet or dry finger, then get some JET-DRY. If you cannot wipe it off of the dishes, then it is *etching,* which is a chemical change in the dish material itself due to the detergent and water.
Maybe, but I don't know if it leaves a taste but they do use it in coffee makers, doing one cycle in a solution of CLR -- removes calcium and lime deposits.
