How to Clean Your Dishwasher, Remove Odors, Hard Water, Rust, Stains


The Importance of Cleaning Your Dishwasher

In college I lived in a house with nine other girls. While that was my first mistake, not instigating a dish cleaning policy was my second. They literally throw the dishes, cups, mugs, and silverware into the mouth of the open dishwasher. I would go to load my cereal bowls and find the there was a plate laying in the top rack and a huge soup pot taking up the entire bottom.

    I’m perplexed by your instruction to put a cup of vinegar in the top rack. I guess it should be obvious but do I put the cup upright? I assume yes because otherwise the instruction would be to put a cup of vinegar in the bottom and then start it. So why not just do that? Is there a difference? Is vinegar too watery to put in the detergent well?
