Do These Two Things Every Time You Run Your Dishwasher
- The disposal drainage is usually linked to the dishwasher, so keep the disposal clear to help keep your dishwasher clean.
- It’s critical to keep the drain beneath the lower rack clear. When you unload your clean dishes, always check to see if any large food particles settled there, and remove them so they don’t rot and contribute to smells or clog drainage. Spritz the drain with white vinegar between washes to help keep it fresh.
