5 Tips To Make Your Dishwasher Run Better

Our dishwashers are a really important appliance in our households. They  allow us to throw in our end of day dishes, skip hand washing and spend that saved time with family or friends. So, because dishwashers are so useful, you want to make sure keep it running as good as possible and that it lives a long life. Check out these 5 really important tips for keeping your dishwasher running the best it can:

  1. Vinegar:  To give your dishwasher a really good clean, pour 1 cup of vinegar in the bottom and run a cycle with no dishes. This will clean out any leftovers hanging on and it will clean out any bad smells.
  2. Hot Water:  A little trick before starting your dishwasher cycle, run water in the sink until it is hot to the touch. This will allow the dishwasher to fill up with hot water right away rather than starting with cold water. Your dishes will thank you!
  3. Scraps: An easy maintenance tip for your dishwasher is to make sure you are scraping plates before putting them in. You want to make sure you get most of the big pieces off and make cleaning a little easier on your appliance.
  4. Wipe Down:  Give the outside and even the inside of your dishwasher a good wash with a cloth. This will pick up any debris and it will help prevent dirt gather in the nooks and corners.
  5. Stain Removal:  If you notice stains inside the dishwasher, use baking soda! Similar  to the vinegar method, place 1 cup of baking soda in the bottom. The run without any dishes and on a hot cycle. The baking soda will help remove stains and is also great for fighting odors.
