Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense to have to clean an appliance that cleans plates and other kitchen utensils, but food particles and minerals can build up in your dishwasher preventing it from cleaning thoroughly and worse, spread germs and bacteria. Add cleaning your dishwasher to your cleaning rotation – your dishes will be cleaner and your dishwasher will run more efficiently.
ADD IT TO YOUR ROUTINE: If you’re adding cleaning your dishwasher to your cleaning rotation, clean it every month or at least every 3 months.
HOW TO: Start by running the dishwasher and removing any clean dishes. Your dishwasher needs to be empty to clean it.
