I don’t know about your dishwasher, but mine gets this funky fishy smell once in a while. And sometimes the smell even transfers to my dishes – which is totally unacceptable! No one wants to drink out of a cup that smells like fish.
I have read all sorts of articles on what might be causing it, and how to fix it. And I have tried many of these ideas. Some seem to help temporarily and others don’t seem to do anything at all.
I don’t have the time to clean my dishwasher very often, with 7 people living in my home we run this beast 1 1/2 to 2 times per day. So there isn’t much time for a rest let alone a cleaning.
But she is special to me, one of my best friends and helpers, so today I took the time to give her some extra love. Here is what I did:
1. Filled a cup with white vinegar and put it on the top rack.
2. Ran the dishwasher on the hottest setting for a full cycle
That’s it! That’s all you have to do. It was simple and quick and seems to have done the trick – for now at least! It only took me 2 minutes!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Now it’s your turn to get after it boys and girls.
