Rinse-aid--the ingredients of which are usually ethanol, citric acid, sodium, dyes and acrylic acid polymers--breaks dew the salts in hard water, thereby preventing the adhesion of soap clumps during the rinse cycle, leaving cleaner-looking results (although consuming food and drinks from streaked or spotted dishes and glassware is not a health hazard in its own right).
For example, polymers such as ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA), poly lactides, polypropylene, poly acrylic acid, poly acetal and poly sulfone are commonly used.
