While it’s certainly true that nothing lasts forever, you can extend the life of the products you buy by looking after them properly and dealing with any potential issues as soon as they appear.

When it comes to your dishwasher, you might not think that it needs much TLC since it is constantly cleaning everything you put in it. Surely it must be cleaning itself at the same time!

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and if you don’t give it a good clean every once in a while, you’re sure to find unpleasant smells emanating from the appliance, as well as spots and grime on your crockery and cutlery.

Keep on top of this by cleaning the machine after each cycle, pulling out the bottom rack so you can see if there is any leftover food at the bottom that needs to be removed.

You might also like to wipe it down once a week to keep it looking as good as new, since food is likely to land on the exterior and interior of the door to the dishwasher. You should also rinse the filter out once a week to prevent problems materialising in the future.

If you’re feeling particularly diligent with your dishwasher, you could also give it a really deep clean once a month, using a cleaning solution specifically designed for this purpose.

Following these steps will certainly help to ensure that your plates, glasses, knives and forks come out sparkling clean each and every time!
