Anybody have any home remedies to clean my dishwasher?
I clean my dishwasher with flavored or unflavored drink mix.. Like TANG, or Kool-Aid something like that... Doesn't matter the flavor or color it won't stain...The citric acid does the trick plus it smells nice... ! It's a cheap alternative to jet dry and cascade products.... I just run the drinkmix on an empty cycle and it's done...! Also, you might want to clean your filters out they can get pretty nasty...! I use electrosol tabs.. Haven't had a problem with my dishes coming out clean.. I think I got 90 tabs. for around $6. I shop bulk and use coupons!
Also, try to NOT use any other major appliance while running the dishwasher... Like the washer, dryer or anything like that. It might not be running on full power if you are running multiple appliances...! Ditto for HOT water.. I run my dishwasher on time delay (at night) so it uses up HOT water while we are sleeping.. Since the water isn't being used anyway...! I also SAVE about 1/2 on my electric bill NOT running any of my major appliances together!
