How to Clean a Dishwasher

Tips on Keeping the Dishwasher Clean from our Maid Service in McKinney, TX

Cleaning a load of dishes in an automatic dishwasher is easy enough, but many of Land of Clean customers will ask our McKinney maids how to keep the interior of the machine clean. New powdered dishwashing detergents no longer contain phosphates as an ingredient. Phosphates helped to keep dishwashers sparkling, but no longer.

Cleaning Dishwasher Rust

Before cleaning off dishwasher rust, make sure that your dishwasher is empty of all dishes and other items. Fill both cups in the dishwasher with Tang breakfast drink. Run a normal cycle. Repeat as necessary until satisfied that the interior of the dishwasher is clean. Be sure not to add any dishwashing powder or or cleaning agents during this process.

Not just for breakfast anymore.

Eliminating Dishwasher Odor

Sprinkle borax onto the bottom of your dishwasher. Let sit overnight. In the morning, use a damp sponge to wipe down the interior or the dishwasher including the door and gaskets. Don’t bother rinsing with water, just use dishwasher as normally. The borax will wash away with the next cleaning load.

How to Remove that Milky Film from Glassware and Dishwasher

To clean the interior of your dishwasher and remove any milky film from glassware, follow these steps. Fill the dishwasher with glassware, making sure not to put any metal objects to be cleaned in the dishwasher during the process. Place a bowl in the bottom of the dishwasher filled with a cup of household bleach like Clorox. Run a normal wash cycle, without adding dishwashing powder and make sure that the dry cycle is also turned off. After the cycle, and while glassware is still wet, place 1 cup of white vinegar in the bowl and run another cycle. At the end of this cycle, you should have all the film removed from your glassware and dishwasher.

 Ongoing Spot Prevention

Mix 1 cup of borax with 1/2 a cup of baking soda. Add a teaspoon of this mixture to the dishwasher in addition to normal powdered soap during every wash. Using this method, your dishwasher should maintain a spot-free appearance.
