How to Sanitize Your Dishwasher


Step 1 -
Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pips your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half of cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all of the baking soda is washed away. After five minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.

Step 2 -
Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon/lime and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with cold water running.

Step 3 -
Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process is that does not clean up all of the build and film. You can use baking soda and bleach instead of vinegar - just sprinkle the baking soda in the bottom of the dishwasher tub, and pour bleach inside the tub as well.

Step 4 - Between washes, pour 1/4 cup of lemon juice into the dishwasher cup and run a short, but complete wash cycle. This will not only deodorize the dishwasher but will also help get rid of any metal build-up.

Garbage Disposal Smells


What can you do if your garbage disposal starts to stink up the kitchen? Because of the stuff that you put down the disposal and grind up the residue can sometimes start to create a foul odor that can be noticed in and around your kitchen. To combat this problem there are some general things that you can do and also some things that you and grind up in the disposal that will help to keep it smelling great.

One of the things that will make the disposal smell bad is if your dishwasher discharges through the garbage disposal. The food left after the water goes through will soon start to spoil and stink. Make sure that you run your disposal after the dishwasher runs to clean out the food and keep the disposal clean.

Some soft foods like meats and cooked vegetables will also tend to stick to the plate of the garbage disposal. These will cause a smell to develop after a time as they breakdown. To stop this from happening keep harder foods or foods that smell better for last to run down the disposal. This will help to clean the plate and keep the garbage disposal smelling better.

If you are going to be away for a long time, or you are having friends over and want your garbage disposal to smell good, you can use a lemon or lemons rinds. Cut up the lemon and grinds it up before you shut down the disposal. This will have your garbage disposal smelling great!!

There are also commercially produced garbage disposal cleaners, deodorizers, and degreasers, that you and buy at most grocery or hardware stores that are made specifically for this purpose.

De-scaled by using vinegar as suggested now every cup tastes like vinegar


Keep filling your water reservoir with water and running it through, until it clears up, it might take a few fill ups of your water reservoir to get the vinegar taste out.

I am out of cream of tartar what do I use in it place?


For beating egg whites - use an equal amount of white vinegar or lemon juice, or omit the cream of tartar entirely

As a leavening agent - replace the baking soda and the cream of tartar in the recipe with baking powder. One teaspoon of baking powder replaces 1/3 tsp of baking soda and 2/3 tsp cream of tartar

How do we remove the horrible smell in our Bosch dishwasher?


First check out your model to see if it has a built in garbage disposal, if so, make sure it is not mucked up.
Run hot water down your sink drain while running the sinks garbage disposal. Pour baking soda down your sink garbage disposal followed by white vinegar. Let it sit and foam. Run hot water down sink disposer while running. When finished:
Run empty dishwasher with no soap, let dishwasher fill with hot water to wash and then pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom and resume wash. Make sure you take it through the dry cycle. When finished, open dishwasher and let it air for a couple of hours, longer if you live in humid area. Hope these steps do the trick.

My coffee maker seems to act like its plugged up because when its trying to fill from the water tank the water level very goes down and sometimes it goes down faster but then if it doesnt get enough water...


It has built up with calcium deposits. Regular vinegar will not clear it.
Add some baking soda with the vinegar. Then after this, use vinegar and lemon
juice to clear up any remaing lemon juice and vinegar from the first cleaning.

We are getting a strong odor from our two compartment dishwasher, would welcome any suggestions

Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with the cold water running. You can use just the lemon or an orange rind if you don't have a whole lemon.

Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process if that does not help. You can use baking soda instead of vinegar - just sprinkle it in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Between washes, pour ¼ cup lemon juice into the dishwasher cup, and run a short but complete wash cycle. Is will not only deodorize the dishwasher, but will also help get rid of any metal build-up

I would like to clean off the calcium deposits that are in the dishwasher. How can I do this or what product should I use.


there are few things you can do to remove the calcium deposits.....

Change the detergent you use. Powdered dishwasher detergent is more efficient in removing grease and oil than gels. Decreasing the gunk left on surfaces may help slow lime scale buildup.


Put a quart of vinegar or lemon juice in the bottom of an empty dishwasher and run it up to the "dry" cycle once a month to keep up with accumulating scale. Extended exposure to mild acid and hot water dissolves most scale.


Clean circulator arms with vinegar or lemon juice and a vegetable brush or toothbrush. Let the acid sit on the scale before scrubbing. Use a needle or hat pin to pierce clogged holes, then rinse by running a cycle with vinegar.


Use plain salt or baking soda to scour surfaces with a sponge or rag. Rinse with boiling water or run a cycle with an empty dishwasher. Do not run the dry cycle.
