Do your dishes have spots? Is your dishwasher starting to smell strange? It’s time to show your dishwasher some love! We have some tips to help prevent spots and machine grime & build-up.
Washing dishes every day and that means every day there’s a chance that bits of food are being left behind between washes. Picking up bits and pieces of food at the bottom of the machine after every wash can go a long way towards preventing buildup and strange odors. Don’t forget to check the silverware basket for bits of food too. Remove it and scrub it in the sink.
Tip: Make your life easier. Wash extra bits of food from your plate before you stick it in for a wash. A quick rinse with BETTER LIFE Dish Soap can prevent grime buildup.
Finding spots on your dishes? It might be a filter problem. Remove and rinse your filter once a week to keep your dishes from coming out spotty. You can scrub the mesh screen with a toothbrush and rinse it with hot running water. It’s also a good idea to wipe down any grime on the handle or controls once a week to keep them from sticking.
Once a month it’s time for a deep clean. The easiest deep cleaning method is to place a bowl filled with two cups of white vinegar on the top rack of your dishwasher. Then, run a normal cycle without dishwasher gel or dishes.
