So – I know it’s Easter and the cleanliness of your dishwasher is probably the last thing on your mind BUT… I found this trick that TOTALLY works to clean/deodorize your dishwasher and I wish I had found it sooner!
Just place a dishwasher-safe dish (I used a glass measuring cup) with white vinegar on the top rack of your dishwasher and run it through a cycle on the hottest setting you can find. The vinegar helps to remove the grime, grease, odors and crusty build-up your dishwasher accumulates over the course of time. Then, sprinkle baking soda around the bottom of the dishwasher and run a short cycle. The baking soda helps to deodorize and remove stains.
This leaves you with a SERIOUSLY sparkly and clean smelling dishwasher – DO IT!
