Cleaning Dishwashers

The dishwasher's job is to clean your dishes -- but, ironically, it can get pretty dirty in the process of performing that function. Here's how to keep your dishwasher as clean and fresh as your dishes:

* Baking soda comes in handy when the dishwasher needs cleaning. Dip a cloth into the soda, and use it to clean smudges from the exterior; the same method will also remove stains from the liner. Use a synthetic scouring pad to clean stubborn soil.

* Clean out hard-water stains, deodorize, and sparkle the inside of the dishwasher by running a wash load using powdered lemonade mix. The ascorbic acid in the powder helps the cleaning action.

* If the interior of your dishwasher retains odors, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of baking soda in the bottom of the machine and allow it to sit overnight. The odors will be washed away with the baking soda during the next wash cycle.

Also you can try Cleaning Naked in cleaning they say its eco friendly no chemicals and I agree. A clean kitchen is important to us for many reasons. A large part of the day is spent in the kitchen and having it clean allows us to use the room the way it is meant to be used. From preparing and enjoying meals to entertaining, the kitchen is a popular hub for many household activities.

Clear any debris out of the holes in spinning arms. Use fine pointed or needle-nose pliers if you have some. Otherwise, try a toothpick or something similar. Take care not to scratch anything if you're using a tool with a metal point. If these holes are very small, bend a fine wire with a tiny hook on one end. Thread the wire through the opening most distal from the center of the arm. Each time you do this a small amount of debris will come out. This is time consuming. Another option is to drill a much larger hole at the end of the arm. Run the washer to eject the matter, then plug the bigger hole with a stainless steel screw.

Baking soda is also effective in cost and lighter in the dishwasher. Just sprinkle a cup in the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle, but complete, using the hottest water. Sodium bicarbonate is also useful for removing stains.

You can try cleaning naked cleaning chemistry and they said there was no Eco-friendly, and I agree. A clean kitchen is important to us for many reasons. Spent a large part of the day in the kitchen and it allows us to approach the use of clean room is to use.

Thanks for the tips - the baking soda tip works quite well. My dishwasher got quite dirty especially next to the filter area and I've never cleaned it in the last 3 years that I have it. The baking soda not only help to easily remove all the dirt but the bad smell as well. One more tip that I'd like to add regarding the use of baking soda - sprinkle the 3 tablespoons before operating the dishwasher.

How about mixing Vinegar, baking soda, and lemons, all have natural cleaning powers that rival manufactured cleaning solutions. They are safe to use & less expensive than other products.

Hi Sadat,
I totally agree with you that baking soda, lemons and natural cleaning powders are really helpful tonics in cleaning. I also used these products in my home for cleaning. I also experienced that there are no harmful effects of these products because some times children can touch them when we noticed them. So. I am free to use these products in home without worrying about children safety.
