Cleaning a dishwasher should be done often. We here at Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. know and take care of this appliance. We do not take it for granted. Below are some tips for cleaning your dishwasher.
Open the dishwasher door so you can get at its top and sides. Dip a small toothbrush in hot, soapy water, and scrub around the door. Make sure you dig into the grooves of the rubber seal and any other crevices, including the hinges. This step might require gentle scrubbing with abrasive cleanser. Wipe up the resulting grime with a household sponge dipped in hot soapy water. Wipe away any cleaning solution left behind with a clean, wet sponge.
Clean the Tub
Before you start cleaning the tub, use a handful of paper towels to grab any debris from the base of the dishwasher. You'll find most of the debris around the drain.
Once the debris is removed, set a dishwasher-safe cup of plain white vinegar on the top rack. (The dishwasher should be otherwise empty.) Run a full cycle, choosing the hottest water possible to disinfect the unit while it's being cleaned. When the cycle is done, wipe out the inside of the dishwasher with paper towels or a clean, dry cloth.
In place of vinegar, you can either put a packet of unsweetened lemonade mix in the soap cup or sprinkle a cupful of baking soda on the bottom of the tub. For either method, run a complete cycle using the hottest water possible. Either option will help clean and freshen your dishwasher.
Clean the Accessories
Your last step? Cleaning the accessories. Wipe off any stuck-on food particles or other debris. Scrub the spray arm with a soft brush or toothbrush to remove clogs.You can use either vinegar,borax or baking soda. These will all sanitize and keep your dishwasher looking and smelling clean.
