Dishwasher "Gunk"

I recently starting noticing the soap dispenser in my "new" (as of April 2010) dishwasher had some serious build-up going on...  

As luck would have it, I was watching "Real Estate Intervention" on HGTV the other day.  Sabrina Soto mentioned running a packet of lemonade through a cycle on an empty dishwasher to clean out any residue.  It is the citric acid on the lemonade that acts as a cleaning agent.  

For 13 cents a packet of Kool-Aid I was intrigued!  

And 1 cycle later...    

Looking much better!
