I have a smelly dishwasher, and a book which suggests the solution is to put a cup of soda in but nothing else, and run a cycle through.Do you think the book means bicarb of soda, or a fizzy drink?And do you have any other ideas?
bicarb of soda! at the idea of pouring a bottle of lemonade in there! Although I normally use vinegar in my washing machine....
It is fair to say no-one has ever confused me with a domestic goddess...What do you do with the vinegar? It would be cheaper than bicarb, and the stuff Lakeland sell for dishwasher maintenance
Well, this is my washing machine, not dishwasher - but I pour it into the detergent drawer and run it empty on a 90 deg wash. I use the clear vinegar...
Clear Vinegar. Top tip. I think you have the measure of me.
I use the brown vinegar now, we ran out of white and I never noticed a difference. I also use it as for the dishwasher rinse aid.
That is worth knowing, JS. I always use white (but then I also use the white on my chips too, so it is what we have in the house).
I decided that given that any vinegar is acidic, I couldn't see what significant difference there would be between white and brown? I keep the cheap brown stuff for dishwasher now.
