Cleaning a dishwasher may be one task which you may feel daunting, but let me explain to you how easily you can clean the dishwasher is less than a minute which makes the dishwasher the easiest appliance to clean in your entire house. You just need white Vinegar to clean the dishwasher. It may seem counterintuitive to clean a dishwasher which was designed to clean any vessel. But here is the thing. These appliances also build up food particles and grease.
Make sure you do these two things every time you run the dishwasher:
The disposal drainage is linked to the dishwasher, so keep the disposal clear so that all the drained water go easily and the dishwasher is clean.
It is very important to make sure that the drain beneath the lower rack is clear of any food particles or any vessels when you unload the cleaned dishes. If you see many food particles, remove them by wearing gloves so that they don’t rot and contribute to odors or clog drainage.
How to clean dishwasher:
Firstly you need to clean the drain so that any plastic caps, small vessels or food which was struck in the drain can be removed. This helps to drain the detergent liquid efficiently which inturn increases the cleaning efficiency. This also helps to prevent any damage to the dishwasher.
Vinegar in the Upper Rack: Put Vinegar in the dishwasher: You might not have thought about this trick. Keep some white vinegar in a dishwasher safe container on the upper rack of the dishwasher and run it through a hot water cycle. This washes away any grime, grease and musty odors. The vinegar loosens the soap scum, grease and food particles present in the dishwasher’s walls and racks
Baking Soda rinse: Sprinkle one cup of baking soda across the Bottom part of the dishwasher and run a hot water cycle. This can make dishwasher smell fresh and make it a stain-free interior.
How often do we need to clean our dishwasher: I would suggest you clean the filter monthly and draining it too once a month.
