Anyone had basic nylon tools turn white?

Was just wondering if anyone else, or one of your customers, has had their nylon tools turn white? I have a customer that purchased these in February and she says hers have turned white, I haven't actually seen them yet.

I went to a show a couple weeks ago with a recruit and heard the same thing? She thought it was from using cheap Walmart Brand Dishwasher soap....

I have had mine for quite some time and I noticed about a month or so ago that they are turning white/grey. I use Cascade detergent. It almost looks like a film or something on them.

It happens when customers put them in the dishwasher, no matter what soap you used. I noticed they got powder (turning them white) all over just after one wash! I had to soak them in Lime Away and that got the white out because soap and water wasn't doing it. NEVER AGAIN will I put those tools in the dishwasher! I would advise your customers not to do so either.

So yeah, tell your customers to soak the tools in Lime Away added to hot water or CLR in water and that will take care of the problem. Make sure they wash that off with soap and water after. ;) Yeah, NO PUTTING THEM IN THE DISHWASHER!

Emily, you may want to try vinegar and water over those chemicals. I would be worried about the tools absorbing the chemicals.

My thought was the dishwasher. I entered a product adjustment to replace them for her - since those tools do not come with a product use and care card I didn't feel right telling her to try to clean them a certain way. So I'll just tell her to not put them in the dishwasher to prevent this from happening again.

Hello, did a Google search and found this. I took your advice and used the Lime Away. It worked great, but now I’m concerned that they may not be safe to use with food now. Do you know? Thank you.
