Keeping your dishwasher clean will not only will help it look and smell better, but it will help it to perform better and possibly extend the life of the appliance. Use eraser sponges to clean the plastic items inside your dishwasher without any added detergent or dish soap.
Cleaning the Inside of the Dishwasher’s Tub with Eraser Sponges
Use a paper towels to remove any large food debris from the bottom of the tub. Next, you will want to loosen any grime or leftover food. While your dishwasher is empty, place a cup of vinegar on the top rack, and put it through a cycle with the hottest water possible.
After the cycle is complete and your dishwasher is cool, use an eraser sponge to remove any grime from plastic racks, utensil or tub baskets, and wash arms. Detergent dispensers or cups can become encrusted with old soap which can prevent it from opening during the wash cycle. Remove any excess detergent from around and inside the dispenser using an eraser sponge.
Check the lower dishwasher spray arms to make sure the holes are free and clear of any blockages. During your dishwasher’s wash cycle, water and detergent spray through these holes to clean your dishes, so clogged spray arms might be preventing your dishwasher from properly cleaning your dishes.
Check the sides of the dishwasher door for dirt and grime and gently wipe it away with a sponge.
Removing Stains and Smells From Inside the Dishwasher Tub
Some blogs suggest cleaning the inside of your dishwasher with bleach. However, if your dishwasher is stainless steel on the inside, this could corrode and ruin the finish of the dishwasher. Instead use an approved commercial dishwasher cleaner. You can polish and clean the inside and outside of Stainless Steel Appliances using microfiber cloths.
