“When was the last time you washed your dishwasher? It may have never occurred to you to wash the machine that washes your dishes. I mean, isn’t it always cleaning itself?”
These are logical questions posed by one of our favorite sites, www.AllRecipes.com.
They say: “The truth is simply running the dishwasher (even with an empty chamber) won’t give it the deep clean it needs to remove built up food, grease, and undissolved detergent. Not only does this result in unsightly build-up and a smelly dishwasher, but the gunk can also give your dishes a film…gross!”
If you think your appliance could use a little TLC, they offer a guide explaining how to clean your dishwasher using items you already have, such as vinegar and baking soda.
