There are so many home and kitchen appliances that should be cleaned at least once a week, for instance cooking range, microwave oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and much more. You might think as to why dishwashing machine should be cleaned so frequently when it uses soap and water to clean all utensils. This is so because we load bowls, plates, cups and other silverware that are covered with food and grease. The outer side of the dishwasher also catches fingerprints and dirt each time you open and close its door.
While looking to buy dishwasher online, make sure that you get user manual. This can help you in cleaning the dishwasher appropriately. In case if you overlook cleaning the dishwasher, then it means that you are spoiling your health by cleaning the dishes in a dirty environment. When it comes to health related issues, you must be very conscious of how your dishes are getting clean. Here, our experts will guide you how you can clean your dishwasher properly:
Clean the Outer Side
Let’s take a start from the easiest part of the dishwasher that is a door. Just remove all the clammy fingerprints from the surface by wiping it with a damp cloth. You can use a cleaning solution such as detergent and water. Or you can also create a mixture by taking one-fourth cup of baking soda and mix it in 1 quarter of water. Avoid using any harsh chemicals as it can damage the surface of the dishwasher door.
Once cleaning the door completely, take a toothbrush and dip it in the cleaning solution or soapy water. Open the door and use a toothbrush to clean the top and sides of your dishwashing machine. Why we always recommend using a toothbrush is because it easily gets into small chinks. In this way, it can eliminate any food particle or dirt which may be stuck in there.
Keep in mind that door seal should be cleaned too with the toothbrush. You can use white vinegar to clean the seal. Once the wiping process is complete, you should use a clean sponge to wipe away soap spots.
Run Empty Dishwasher
You need to put away all the dishes at the side before running a dishwasher cycle. Remember taking out all the utensil baskets and racks so that your dishwashing machine is completely empty. Once the machine is clear, make sure to check all the spinning holes which are existing at the bottom of the dishwashing machine. You need to clean food particles or debris from these holes so water can run freely through all the areas, thus letting it clean fully. You can use a toothpick to clean sticky items.
Keep in mind to clean utensil baskets and racks too as it can also contain greasy and food particles. You can use warm and soapy water to clean them, and after this, let it dry at room temperature.
Eliminate Debris in Drain
To whichever brand you are selecting in a dishwasher, it includes a drain from where waste water escapes. You should clean the drain properly by using a toothbrush so that all food debris can be removed and there will be the least to no chances of clogging. Make sure to wash the area with clean water.
Run Dishwasher Cycle Again
Once manual cleaning of the inner side of the dishwasher is complete, you should run another cycle without loading the dishes. You can add one to two cups of pure white vinegar at the bottom of the dishwashing machine so to clean it appropriately. Allow it to run on low speed.
Why we usually suggest using white vinegar in dishwasher empty wash cycle is because it removes all hard water deposits and cleans everything. You can stop the dishwashing machine when it is halfway through the cycle. Let the vinegar sit at the bottom of the dishwasher for a few minutes so everything can be as clean as new. Make sure that your dishwashing machine should not only smell fresh but can make you feel better when you are loading the dishes next time.
When planning to buy dishwasher online, make sure that you know all the above mentioned tips so you can clean your best dishwasher perfectly.
