Dishwasher cleaning hacks
Face plates towards the centre
This is where the water spraying mechanism works, so you want to layer your items with the dirtiest surfaces facing towards it.
Clean it regularly
The cleaner your dishwasher, the cleaner your dishes. While their job is to wash, the machines can collect all sorts of dirt and old food. You don’t want these hanging around for every rise cycle.
One way to help your dishwasher, especially if you live in a hard water area, is to put a bowl of white vinegar in the top rack while you run a cycle. This helps with hard water marks.
Don’t run it while half full
This is an expensive mistake to make, for your wallet and the environment. It’s wise to run a cycle when the dishwasher is full.
