How often to clean your dishwasher
Fungi and black yeast can grow in your dishwasher. So while it may seem strange to clean the machine that cleans your dishes, we recommend you tackle this task often.
1. Disinfect it by pouring vinegar into a dishwasher-safe cup, then place the cup upright on (empty) dishwasher's top rack.
2. Finish by running a full cycle, using the hot-water setting.
