How to Clean a Dishwasher – Especially the Fine Filter
STAIN SOLVER is perfect to clean the inside of a dishwasher and eliminate bacteria. Bacteria and viruses can grow and multiply in the fine filter most people never remove and inspect. It’s in the deep dark pit of your dishwasher.
Is it SAFE to put the STAIN SOLVER in the Dishwasher with Dishes and Glasses?
Yes, it’s SAFE to use STAIN SOLVER in the dishwasher when it’s loaded with dishes, glasses and silverware. It WILL NOT etch or harm anything.
Every other load of dishes I add one tablespoon of STAIN SOLVER in the bottom of the machine. This treatment helps deep clean all the metal surfaces and the inside and outside of the rotating arms that spray the water that cleans your dishes.
Will STAIN SOLVER Clean the Fine Filter?
Yes, this is the most important thing to clean. The fine stainless steel mesh gets clogged with grease.
Bacteria and viruses can thrive in this moist environment where it’s dark and there’s a food supply to sustain them.
This grease buildup on this filter is one of the reasons your clear glasses look foggy after you pull them out of the machine.
How Do you Clean the Fine Filter in the Dishwasher?
I remove the filter, and take it apart if the filter has more than one component. I then fill a bowl so I can soak the filter for four hours.
I add 1/4 cup of STAIN SOLVER for each quart of HOT water in the bowl. After soaking use an old toothbrush to scrub the filter and any other parts.
