Do you clean your dishwasher? You should and here is how

Do you clean the cleaners? It is so important to regularly clean your dishwasher as the filters can become very congested and this is just being swooshed around your machine every time you use it causing your dishes not to be cleaned thoroughly. When swapping to a low tox alternative, cleaning the filters is even more important, as you don’t have all those harmful descaling ingredients which may do some of the cleaning for you.


1 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup bo carb soda

10 drops Lemon oil


Mix the bi carb soda with the lemon oil  and sprinkle over the base of the machine once the filters are cleaned. Place the cup of vinegar in the top rack of the dishwasher and set the cycle to HOT. Run it through a cycle empty and it will be spotless. I also add my coconut sourer or any other dish brush or scrubber to this cycle for an extra deep clean.
