Hi. I'm Ann Myrick. I'm going to show you how to clean a dishwasher today. What you want to do is take your dishes out, take everything out of your dishwasher and then you can either use about a cup of vinegar or you could use bleach. Now, I am sure that there are commercial products also, but I always use the household products; if I have them. So, either vinegar or bleach; the bleach would be about a tablespoon. So, you would put either one; let's say we're going to use the vinegar. I would put a cup of vinegar; you could either put a cup of vinegar with the cup sitting on the top rack and shut it and turn it on or I would just pour the vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher, turn it on and let it go full cycle. At that point the vinegar or if you're using the bleach will clean and you have a clean dishwasher. This is Ann Myrick and that is how to clean a dishwasher.
