I am cringing while writing this post. It started off normal enough–I planned on writing a post about cleaning your dishwasher. Pretty normal, right? Well. Then I thought, “Oh, I should totally take before and after pictures to show how sparkly and clean it is after I clean it.” I didn’t expect to see how DISGUSTING the inside of my dishwasher is.
We have hard water in Calgary plus the dishwasher tabs sometimes don’t dissolve completely. So my dishwasher door has this nice stripe of….ick down it.
Thankfully, cleaning your dishwasher doesn’t require much work on your part. “No elbow grease” is what my granny would say.
First, visit your favorite grocery store’s dishwasher detergent aisle. Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner is right beside the Finish® dishwasher detergent tabs.
Next, peel the sticker off of the top of the dishwasher cleaner and place the Finish® dishwasher detergent top down on a lower dishwasher rack. Don’t remove the blue top! Turn your dishwasher on its hottest setting (such as sanitize) and let it run a complete cycle. While it is running, I recommend catching up on your favorite TV shows, eating bon bons and doing your nails. That’s what all us work at home moms do all day, right? After about an hour or so (and the happy song my dishwasher plays when it is done), I couldn’t wait to check out the results.
That icky stripe is GONE. Look at the shiny stainless! Pretty! Overall, my dishwasher is so much less gross. Finish® helps maintain your machine, remove limescale, clear grease, clean hidden parts and freshen your dishwasher. They recommend you do a cleaning cycle once a month for best results. I think I can handle that! You can find Finish® at Loblaw’s, Walmart, RCSS, Canadian Tire, No Frills, Sobeys, Metro, Food Basics, Fresh Co for around $4.99. Want more info?
