And why isn't dish soap sufficient to clear your dishwasher? I mean, it cleans the food off your plates, are the sides of the dishwasher somehow immune?

There's a build-up of residue on the walls of the dishwasher over a period of time. In the same way, even though only clean water goes through your coffeemaker, there's build-up from that. So every now and then you need to get rid of it, and some form of citric acid does the trick.

Some companies sell an expensive form of the acid, with a variety of explanations about how teams of top scientists have labored for decades to make this marvelous formula. The cheap stuff works just as well.
