How To

How-To | Deep Clean the Dishwasher

Apr 5, 2016

Believe it or not, even a machine that’s built to clean all day long gradually gets dirty. Deep clean your dishwasher with these few steps every few months to keep your machine running its best and ensure a dazzling finish for dishes and glassware. 

Gather These Tools: 

Dish Detergent, All-Purpose Bleach Alternative, Scented Vinegar, Surface Cleaner, Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth

Clear Food & Debris

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.

Seal the Deal

Spray seals, rubber gaskets, and the exterior with the Surface Cleaner. Wipe away grime with the Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth.

Final Rinse

For an all-encompassing clean, add ΒΌ 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.
