How to keep the dishwasher and garbage disposal clean during the holidays?

The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to prepare our homes for the festivities. One of the most important things to do is to ensure that our appliances are clean and in good working order. In this post, we’ll show you how to clean your dishwasher and garbage disposal so they’re ready to tackle all your holiday cooking and cleaning needs.

To clean your dishwasher, start by removing any large food particles from the bottom of the dishwasher. Then, remove the filter and rinse it off with hot water. Replace the filter and make sure it’s locked in place. Next, use a dishwasher cleaner like Affresh or Finish, following the directions on the label. Finally, wipe down the outside and gasket with a damp microfiber cloth. For stainless-steel dishwashers, use a stainless-steel cleaner like Weiman or Shelia Shine, making sure to only wipe with the grain. Remember, it’s important to never use vinegar in your dishwasher as it can damage the seals and harm your dishwasher.

To clean your garbage disposal, start by mixing some ice cubes with rock salt in a bowl. Start the water on your sink and pour the ice into the garbage disposal. Turn on the disposal and let it run until the ice is gone. Next, add a generous amount of baking soda to the disposal. Some people like to add lemon juice for a fresh scent. Pour vinegar onto the baking soda and allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes. Finally, flush the baking soda and vinegar down the drain with hot or boiling water. Cleaning your garbage disposal every 1-2 weeks can help prevent buildup, grease, and odors, ensuring that your kitchen smells fresh and clean.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your appliances are in good working order and ready to tackle all your holiday cooking and cleaning needs. Happy holidays!
