* 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.
Thanks for your information. I really want to clean my dishwasher very desperately. But, feel boring to clean all its equipment. After getting your information I think it would be easier for me. I can say that vinegar also the best option that makes your dishwasher clean and stain free.

The baking soda trick is one that I have used a few times, however I find that if I run an empty wash once per week it keeps it extremely clean!!

Its a good piece of info. Take a small brush and dipped it into the hot saopy water, go around the door of the dishwasher taking care to get into the grooves and crevices of the rubber seal. Most likely, you'll be surprised at the debris that has built up, especially at the bottom of the door and around the hinges on the side.

Using citric acid is a popular trick, here’s how you do it: Fill the detergent cup with 2 tablespoons of powdered citric acid (some even recommend just filling the soap dispenser with powdered Orange Tang since it contains citric acid) and run through a full cycle. This is especially good for removing rust spots (you may have to do more than one treatment).

Do you think that this process it is good for the kettle as well?

Thanks, Tom

Dishwasher need cleaning very often but it's not to clean hard it.Use sprey cleaner for door and around the gusket and take a clothe to wipe it.Toothbrush or other household brush can help to clean corner or holes.sprey and wipe door, controls and the handle.Also don't miss the ledge between panels because it's collect dirt.

Thanks for the hints! I have also heard that you can easily clean dishwasher with vinegar by letting it clean itself.

Sarah you can try it without any worries. It is a natural way to clean, so it is safe and less expensive than other products.
You could also try mixing Vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice as others advised.

It is would best to use branded detergents to wash your dishes. Don't use multi purpose detergent powders and costly ones. I suggest every one to use either gels or crystals.

Thanks for the info - these tips work great.

Also, consider using vinegar to get rid of unpleasant smells.
It's easy - you just need to put vinegar in the tub and run an empty heavy cycle. Done - you have a fresh smelling dishwasher.
