Dishwashers do require periodical and thorough maintenance. Keeping it clean is important because if it’s not clean, the dishes won’t be clean. And if dishes aren’t clean, your health is put to risk. But don’t worry, it’s easy to determine if your dishwasher requires cleaning. Consider cleaning your dishwasher if:
- Dishwasher becomes “weaker”, losing the effectiveness.
- Gets white spots left from hard water
- The dishes smell with something that was previously stored in one of them.
- The mold is building up in the dishwasher
When the dishwashing solution just isn’t performing like it used to be, consider:
- Vinegar cleaning
- Baking soda cleaning
- Vinegar and baking soda together
Just get a small cup full of vinegar, or baking soda, or even both, in the upper frame and turn on in normal mode with nothing else in the dishwasher. It will clean the dishwasher and make it work as new.
Cleaning Your Dishwasher’s White Spots from Hard Water
For those, instead of special dishwasher cleaners, use powdered lemonade mix or something similar and do a run with empty load in normal mode. The mix will actually do better cleaning than weeks of manual brushing would do.
Getting Rid of the Smell
For bad smells, like onions getting to all your “dishwashed” dishes, you can use a regular cleaner mixed with a couple of cups of vinegar. Run the mixture in normal mode and problem solved!
Important: Do not use cleaning solutions chat contain chlorine on stainless steel dishwasher surface. It’s very easy to keep your dishwasher clean. It doesn’t require much effort, doesn’t require anything that’s hard to get. Keep your dishes clean and handle issues right away.
