Tackle Big Messes Better With a Sparkling-Clean Dishwasher

You might think it’s self-cleaning, but your dishwashing machine needs regular upkeep to keep it working hard for you

It may seem redundant to clean a dishwasher, but that’s exactly what housekeeping experts advise to ensure that your hardworking machine stays in top shape. Cleaning every four to six weeks will help reduce the buildup of lime scale and soap scum and eliminate food particles that can diminish the machine’s effectiveness and clog the little water spouts that rinse your dishes. Bottom line: A clean dishwasher means cleaner dishes.
