As an oft-overlooked kitchen appliance, your dishwasher deserves an occasional deep scrub to keep it working its best — and to keep your dishes free from grime.
Yes, we know, the idea of cleaning your dishwasher seems a little strange. After all, isn’t it getting a thorough rinse every time you run it? Your dishwasher, however, needs a little extra TLC to be truly clean. There’s a lot of grime, musty odors, and germs that can accumulate — especially if you don’t take the time to give it a good scrub.
If you notice your supposedly clean dishes don’t seem to be getting as clean as you’d like, it’s probably time to give your dishwasher some love. Thankfully, cleaning your dishwasher isn’t all that hard. Even better? You don’t need to buy expensive cleaners with questionable ingredients to give your dishwasher a deep clean. All you need are a few environmentally friendly and affordable kitchen staples to help your dishwasher sparkle.
