Here's How To Clean Your Dishwasher

It's strange to think about having to clean your dishwasher. Your dishwasher cleans plates and silverware for you.

According to CNet, "Giving it a little TLC can make it wash better, smell better and can prevent overflows. Luckily, cleaning your dishwasher is pretty simple."

Here are easy ways to clean your dishwasher to keep it working and smelling clean longer.

First, try cleaning the filter- rinse the filter with warm water and dishwashing soap, scrub the filter and then rinse with clean water and let air dry.

Next, try cleaning the seal- scrub the seal with warm water and then wipe dry with a cloth. De-clogging the water sprayers- use a toothpick to get food particles out of the spray holes.

Finally, if your dishwasher starts to get a little smelly- pour baking soda in the dishwasher and let it sit overnight, in the morning run a normal load in an empty dishwasher.

I hope these help you keep your dishwasher cleaner, check out the CNet article for more ways here.
