If you think about it, you have two hardworking appliances in your kitchen: the refrigerator and the dishwasher. The dishwasher is put to use every day to battle heavily soiled plates, glasses, spoons, forks and even pots and pans. But so many long spells of regular use, or even shorter periods of highly intense use, are bound to take their toll on the dishwasher, which gets clogged with grease, food residue, fatty deposits, and also lime-scale. An underperforming dishwasher will reveal its condition of non-performance soon enough – and this is the time to give it the full cleaning service it needs. We have compiled this guide to help you learn how to clean your dishwasher part by part so that it performs well over a longer period of time.
Upon opening your dishwasher door, you can see a few parts that you can easily clean yourself. These include the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher, the racks and even the dishwasher arm, which can all be removed. This means you can finally get to those hard to reach places, such as inside the dishwasher arm, or underneath the filter if there are any particularly large pieces of food trapped there. While the door is open, inspect the corners of the dishwasher, and see if they need a clean as well. Any residues or leftovers in the corners can be easily removed with a wet sponge or toothbrush and some warm soap. And finally, don’t forget the door hinges, which almost everybody does – the door hinges often fill up with muck. Clean the hinges with a toothbrush and soon you will see the difference in the dishwasher’s performance!
The Dishwasher Cleaner
But those were just the parts you can see and reach. There are other parts of the dishwasher, such as the pumps, pipes and drains which need washing, too, especially if they’ve been working overtime. But you can’t possibly clean these yourself. You need a powerful dishwasher cleaner that ensures proper cleaning of the entire dishwasher; the dishwasher cleaner eliminates lime-scale, and keep water running smoothly inside the machine.
To get your dishwasher really clean, use Finish Dishwasher Cleaner to remove all the grease, fatty deposits, food residue and lime-scale that has built up in the hidden and vital parts of the dishwasher. Finish Dishwasher Cleaner works by flowing through the apparatus and cleaning all through these hidden parts – the dishwasher can handle up to an entire kilogram of grease passes through it every six months! The dual-layer formula of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner attacks and gets rid of the built-up grease and lime-scale, and helps to neutralize bad odors arising from the same.
To use Finish Dishwasher Cleaner, peel off the cover and pop it in the dishwasher upside down, and put your dishwasher on at the highest temperature possible, running an empty cycle. Once the cycle is over, your dishwasher will be left clean, smelling fresh, and working at its best.
