Dishwashing buildup got you down? Well, come on, get happy, because I have a quick tip to help you remove the buildup. Step one: Empty your dishwasher. Step two: Add one cup of distilled white vinegar to your dishwasher for the wash cycle. If the buildup is severe, add two cups of vinegar to the machine. Just pour it into the bottom, and let the rinse cycle go. Turn it on, and walk away. Step three: When the machine is finished and cooled off, remove the racks and wipe and rinse them off in your kitchen sink. And then, take a microfiber cloth and wipe down the entire inside of the dishwasher. The vinegar smell may linger for about an hour, but will fade away along with the buildup. Remember to always empty the trap. Check with your manufacturer’s recommendations on how to do this. For maintenance, just repeat every two weeks or so.
