Re: Dishwasher Racks
Go to the hardware store and buy yourself a can of Plasti-Dip. It is a product for insulating handle grips on pliers and such. You want the can of product, not the aerosol. Simple dab on the PD wherever it is needed. While it won't look pretty, it will work to cover the rust and keep your dishes from getting stained.
As DJ said, the dishwasher is coming to it's useful end, so start saving up and shopping for a new unit.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
