Clean your dishwasher…Yes, it gets dirty!

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Cleaning Secret is available. Most folks are surprised to hear the dishwasher needs to be cleaned. Over time, soap, food debris, grease, and such builds up…and these are all breeding grounds for bacteria. My recommendation for you is to clean it once a month. Here’s how I clean mine: 1. Empty it out: After you’ve run a cycle, remove everything. 2. Remove any visible debris: Clean out any clearly visible leftover bits of food and grime. Don’t forget to check the utensil rack and other removable compartments, as well as the dishwasher mechanisms. 3. Run on empty: Add 2 cups of white vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher and run an empty dishwashing cycle. I often stop the dishwasher halfway through the cycle, and let the vinegar sit on the bottom for about 20 minutes. I then turn it back on and complete the cycle. 4. Don’t forget the exterior: Wipe the dishwasher surface, sides, and all buttons. 5. Repeat once a month. Back to Cleaning Secrets Index
