Our new house's ancient dishwasher tried to destroy our dishes! The racks are rusting through the "plastic" coating, and so rusted metal is sticking out. There are now rust stains here and there on our dishes. I've gotten some of the stains off with Barkeeper's Friend and a helluva lot of elbow grease, but there are still some spots. Any suggestions? We are hand-washing until our new dishwasher is installed next week (cost of new dishwasher = slightly more than cost of replacing rusted racks... sigh).
In case it matters, these are Noritake Colorwave dishes (http://www.colorwavecorner.com/norita...) and are only a few years old.
