I am always in the kitchen and relying on my dishwasher to do it’s job. Sadly, The only time we tend to think about cleaning it, is when it stops working. When was the last time you cleaned your dishwasher? I know it has been too long for mine. I am cleaning it as we speak.
How to Clean A Dishwasher
Clean the Dishwasher Trap:
Get down and look in your dishwasher. There is usually a removable strainer that contains little bits of food and things that get caught in the dishwasher. Remove it and rinse clean or use a towel to remove and clean out the gunk.
Wipe Down the Rubber Seals:
The Rubber gaskets around the door tend to gather gunk pretty quickly. Use an all purpose kitchen cleaner and wipe them down often.
Run an empty dishwasher with vinegar:
You simply toss a cup of white vinegar into the bottom of an empty dishwasher and run a normal cycle. It cleans out old food particles to keep your dishwasher smelling fresh.
Clean your dishwasher often to keep it running properly. I clean mine about once a month.
