Inside of dishwasher

I have 62 apartments to clean. Each ine has a dishwasher that had wayer build up in all yhe hard to reach spaces. The inside is stainless steel.

I have tried clr and vinegar. Clr doesnt work that good to he expensive as it is and smells aweful.

We need to get in and ouy of these apartments as fast as we can so I need to find some thing that's easy and fast to apply.

Vinegar doesnt work very fast either.

Anyone know any cleaner or tips and tricks that will help?
Thank you so much!

I would give Scrubbing Bubbles a try. Let it sit for awhile then use a Dobie pad on remove gunk followed by a wet cloth to remove and rinse.

You could also try Bar Keepers Friend- powder. Might be a bit more labor intensive than SB

I also have to ask is property management really that concerned with you removing hard water stains? That's a pretty tall order on 62 apartments that they want you in and out of efficiently.... yes, I understand they want them cleaned of gunk and odor free but clean of hard water stains seems rather over the top. Sometimes we use a stainless steel cleaner or mineral oil to reduce the appearance of the staining but typically PM's just aren't willing to spend the $ for more than clean/odor free... it's just not realistically something you can make new again in one end of tendency clean.

Water stains are mineral deposits, usually calcium. This is a very hard rock basically. Scrubbing it off is not going to work to get it clean. You have to dissolve it. That is what vinegar or other acids are doing. They are converting Calcium Carbonate into calcium and carbon dioxide. A dilute acid like vinegar is going to have to be reapplied and will take a long time to remove the stain and make it clean. Concentrated acids like hydroflouric acid or sulfuric acid could dissolve it fast but create a big safety risk. IMO, removing the stains just takes time and patience. Sometimes in cleaning, time is a critical ingredient.

I think if you use natural products like lemon, baking soda for cleaning the dishwasher then it would be more beneficial. In this process, you have to sprinkle a cup of baking soda in the dishwasher, gently scrub the dishwasher with the toothbrush, keep it overnight and clean it with a warm water the very next morning. After completing the whole procedure, you will definitely receive best results. Must try out this.
