2. Vinegar Rinse

Over time, material will accumulate in the nooks and crannies of your dishwasher and cause odors and stains. Hard water can make even more stains. Regular cleaning and deodorizing with vinegar is simple and effective, helping to remove that vaguely offensive odor which dishwashers develop and also sanitize the interior. A bowl with a couple of cups of white vinegar sitting on the bottom rack will disperse this environmentally friendly cleaner when you run a cycle without detergent or dishes inside.
