How to Clean Your Dishwasher

8/5/2014 (Permalink)

You would probably think, "Why would I need to clean my dishwasher? It's already clean since it cleans my dishes." Well, think again. The dirty dishes can leave food and all types of smells in your dishwasher. Here are some steps to get your dishwasher fresh and clean.

Step 1: Start by filling a spray bottle with a cup of white vinegar.

Step 2: With your dishwasher completely empty, slide the racks out, and disconnect them from the tracks. Use the spray bottle and a dry rag to give the visible interior a wipe-down. Remember, to reach up to the ceiling, and clean any top-mounted sprayers as well.

Step 3: With the drawers still extracted, spray the vinegar to clean around the base of the main drain as well. Use a toothbrush to get in between the holes in the drain.

Step 4: Finish by spraying and wiping down the racks using the vinegar and a sponge, and cleaning the rubber seals around the edges of the door, and the silverware holders, which are both notorious for capturing crumbs and getting a little icky.

And before you know it, you have a SPARKLING clean dishwasher! That wasn't too bad, was it?
