Rinse aid is a surfactant reducing water’s surface tension. This surface tension is the “skin” effect on

drops of water making them ball up rather than spread out thin on a surface for swifter evaporation. As

a surfactant, rinse aid prevents water from forming into droplets instead compelling those to drain in thin

sheets from the surface or quickly evaporate.
