A housekeeper has revealed the secret ingredient she uses to keep the dishwasher sparkling clean
She showed how to clean the machine using two teaspoons of citric acid.
Mom simply puts the ingredient in the detergent compartment, closes the door and puts on a quick cycle while it is empty.
‘Wow, it’s so clean,’ she said as she showed off the newly sparkling appliance.
‘You will be amazed at the difference.’
And others quickly agreed on the method.
‘Citric acid is the key ingredient in most dishwashers,’ explained one man.
Others said citric acid can be replaced with vinegar and baking soda for a similar result.
«Natron, ja. I do this regularly. I also like to add vinegar. Leaves no odor or anything, and really cleans the dishwasher. Even better, it takes away the weird smell a dishwasher can have at times, ‘said one mother.
