Even though your dishwasher is meant to clean other things, the dishwasher itself needs a good cleaning every now and then in order for it to function to the best of its ability. Luckily, you don’t need to buy any kind of special cleaner to do the job.

Here’s all you have to do. With an empty dishwasher, just fill up the detergent compartment with white vinegar and run it on an empty cycle. You can do this every few weeks in order to deodorize your dishwasher and clean out the food gunk. This will help your machine to work better and last longer.
