- Clean the insides with a damp cloth: It is essential to wipe the insides of your dishwasher at least once every month. You will find a lot of debris like broken glasses and chunks of food among other things stuck inside. Start from the bottom and clear out all the dirt; use your hands to reach out to places where you can't look. These particles are the main reason why the efficiency of your dishwasher goes down.
- Clean the doors and seals with a toothbrush: Use a toothbrush to clean the seals and the whole perimeter of the dishwasher where the door meets the tub. Once the slime is loosened, clean it off with a wet sponge.
- Unclog the spray arms: The most common problem in dishwashers is clogged spray arms. It is very easy to clean these parts once you detach them from the machine. Using a dental floss or a steel cable, you can clear the clogged dirt from all the holes of the arms.
- Clean the spray arms by soaking it in white vinegar: Once you are done with unclogging the spray arms, you can clean them by soaking them in white vinegar.
- Get rid of the residue and scale build-up: You can get rid of the residue at the bottom of the dishwasher by making a paste of vinegar and baking soda and applying it on the required areas. After it dries, you can wipe off the areas with a wet cloth.
Using the above tips, you can effortlessly keep your dishwasher (and your dishes) free of dirt.
