Many customers email to ask if Smelly Washer can be used to clean a dish washer. You’d be amazed at how well it works! If your dishwasher smells, there’s no better way to remove bacteria and mold odor from your dishwasher.
Mold and bacteria can collect deep inside your dishwasher. Leftover food deposits feed germs that can cause odor and affect the dishwasher cleaning ability.
The best way to clean either a plastic or stainless steel tub dishwasher is to split just a tablespoon of Smelly Washer Cleaner between the dispensers and the floor of the dishwasher. Start a long, hot cycle such as “pots & pans” or “baked on goods” and allow the cycle to complete. For more extreme cases, allow the dish washer to soak by popping the door ajar just 1″. Don’t open the door all the way as it’s easily tripped over and expensive to replace!
If you have food stains (especially from tomato based foods) on plastic bowls or dishes – this procedure may remove those stains if you wash them in the unit with a tbsp of Smelly Washer Cleaner.
