Get a Clean Dishwasher With Vinegar!

I've read that vinegar and vinegar only can be used to get your dishwasher clean, but I wanted to test it for myself. I've been on a cleaning spree since the holiday season ended, so I decided to tackle my icky dishwasher a few days ago, and now I'm sharing my results!

    My dishwasher gasket has slimey grey mold that I have to manually clean every week ! I use the natural pods to clean my dishes. I have tried bleach to clean and hot water. It keeps coming back. I am excited about trying this method. Thank you !

      ALSO.....Karen, are you on well water? if so, you probably need to get your well " shocked", if not, possibly an in line filter cause it sounds like a water condition issue...hope this helps🤔
