Food and debris lingering in your dishwasher’s food trap will cause odors and prevent a spotless clean. To clear out buildup, locate the trap under the lower sprayer and remove it entirely. Wash it in the sink using a small amount of Dish Detergent. Rinse well. Before re-inserting it into the machine, wipe down the area where the food trap was positioned with a damp Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth.
For an all-encompassing clean, add ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the dishwasher and run a normal load free of dishware. This is especially effective for removing any soap scum and filmy residue caused by hard water.
