HOW TO KEEP YOUR DISHWASHER CLEAN The other day I was scheduled for a maintenance and tune-up of my dishwasher since I have the Sears Master Protection Plan, which I highly recommend.  It was just the annual checkup of my appliances, and a very knowledgeable technician gave me this tip that I want to share with you. For sometime, I  have cleaning my dishwasher periodically with the well-known Dishwasher Magic bottle every 3 months or so.  But in addition to what I was already doing he recommended I follow these 3 steps with:

  1. Use the Dishwasher Magic bottle every 3 months per instructions.
  2. once every 2 weeks or so, add a cup of 8 oz or a bit larger of Vegetable Vinegar in an empty dishwasher and start it in normal cycle.  After 10 minutes or so, add an additional ½ a cup. Let it go through its entire cycle.  Repeat as needed. It will clean your dishwasher.  You can also do the same with cloudy glasses inside and it will get rid of the cloudiness.
  3. Do not use dishwasher detergent pods.  Use liquid dishwasher soap.

I had been doing #1, but then I tried #2 twice, once after the other on the same day, and my dishwasher was sparkly clean.  The glasses are looking so much better. With these 3 tips your dishwasher will function better, clean better and look better inside and out!

Try it and let me know how it goes. If you have other tips good tips, I would love to hear about them.

El otro día programado el mantenimiento y puesta a punto de mi lavavajillas ya que tengo el Plan Maestro de Protección Sears, que recomiendo encarecidamente. Era sólo el chequeo anual de mis electrodomésticos y un técnico experto me dio este consejo que quiero compartir con ustedes. Por algún tiempo  ya he  limpiado mi lavavajillas periódicamente con el conocido Dishwasher Magic cada 3 meses aproximadamente. Pero además de lo que ya estaba haciendo que me recomendó seguir estos 3 pasos con:

  1. Use la botella mágica Lavavajillas cada 3 meses según las instrucciones.
  2. Una vez cada 2 semanas más o menos , agregue una taza de 8 oz o un poco más grande de vinagre de vegetales en el lavavajillas vacío y ponerlo en marcha en el ciclo normal. Después de 10 minutos, agregar una ½ taza adicional. Déjalo terminar su ciclo normal. Repetir según sea necesario. La lavavajillas quedara muy limpia.  Puedes hacer lo mismo, con los vasos de vidrio adentro y le quitara la opacidad.
  3. No usar detergentes que vienen en cojincitos o pods para lavavajillas. Solo utilizar jabón líquido de lavavajillas

Yo había estado haciendo # 1 , pero luego traté # 2 dos veces, una después de la otra en el mismo día , y mi lavavajillas quedo brillante de limpio. Los vasos de vidrio ahora quedan mejor, transparente sin esa opacidad que muchas veces adquiren a lo largo del tiempo.  Con estos 3 consejos, tu lavadora de platos funcionara y limpiara mejor, además de que estará limpia por adentro y por fuera.

Prueba estos consejos y me encantaría saber cómo te fue. Si tienes otros tips, me encantaría saber de ellos.
