Clean Your Dishwasher in 3 Easy Steps!

My husband and I have rented homes for 11 years now. Each apartment, condo, and house with different appliances. Some were brand new, most were less than ideal.

Nothing is more frustrating than opening your dishwasher to find all the dishes you prewashed and then ran through the washer are STILL dirty. UGH! I need those sippy cups NOW!

I learned a little trick, not long ago, to clean your dishwasher in 3 easy steps that I’ve found can revitalise even the grimiest washer around.

Check it out!

Clean Your Dishwasher in 3 Easy Steps:

1. Check your filter for debris or scraps. Make sure to clear out as much loose food, etc. that you can. This will make a huge difference in your wash.

2. Place a measuring cup with one cup of white vinegar in the top rack of your empty dishwasher. Let it run one complete cycle with nothing in the dishwasher besides the cup of vinegar

3. Once the cycle is complete, empty the measuring cup (which is now full of water), and sprinkle a cup of baking soda in the bottom of your dishwasher. Now run a complete cycle with the hottest water possible. You will open up a fresh smelling sparkling dishwasher!

That’s it! Super easy. And cleaner than ever before.
