Here’s how to clean a dishwasher
- Remove the bottom dish rack. Inspect the dishwasher drain, removing any gunk or food caught there. This will improve drainage, increase cleaning efficiency and prevent damage to the dishwasher.
- Start with an empty dishwasher. Place a cup of white vinegar in a dishwasher-safe container on the upper rack of the machine. Run the dishwasher through a hot-water cycle. This will wash away grease and grime and remove musty odours too.
- Sprinkle one cup of bicarb soda and 5 drops of doTERRA lemon essential oil across the bottom of the dishwasher. Run a short, hot water cycle.
