We’ve all been there – dealing with a dishwasher that doesn’t clean like it should. Luckily for us, Trey (one of our trusty Project Managers!) recently got the scoop from a dishwasher guru, and is on the blog today sharing a few tips to make dishes extra clean. Before you call the professionals, try these easy tips…
If using liquid detergent, only fill the detergent box half full. Filling it completely full leaves a film. Fun fact: newer dishwashers are energy efficient and use very little water (some even less than a gallon!), making it harder to get rid of excessive detergent residue.
To ensure your dishes are washed with the hottest water possible, run hot water to your sink first. After a few minutes, turn on your dishwasher. The hot water will already be in your water lines, allowing for a more sanitized wash from start to finish!
Learn your controls! For food left on dishes, make sure all wash zones are on, turn on pre-soak and turn the wash temperature to sanitize.
Lastly, Rinse Aid additive is a must for spot-free dishes. If you use drop-in pods, no need to add Rinse Aid – the pods already have Rinse-Aid in them!
Try some of these tips at home and see if they add an extra sparkle to your dishes!
