Pinterest Clean

I am always adding little tips on Pinterest to clean the house using normal everyday products. I saved a pin about cleaning your dishwasher and thought it was a spot that could use some cleaning. Thank goodness for that pin because I noticed earlier in the week that my dishwasher was sort of stinky and was holding water at the bottom. I immediately thought of my pin and checked out what I needed to do.

1. Empty your dishwasher completely. Get a large measuring cup and fill it with vinegar. Place that cup on the top rack of the dishwasher and run the hottest cleaning cycle you can. This breaks down the grime, sanitizes, and gets rid of that nasty smell! {I could already tell a difference once this step was done.}

2. Once that cycle is finished, sprinkle baking soda on the bottom and wash on quick hot setting. This will remove any stains and help freshen it up.

My review would be 10/10. It's quick, cheap, and makes a huge difference! I will be keeping this "home tip" close by.
