This allows the baking soda to act and remove the grease from the drain itself and then you can use a mild scrub to scrub out the residue of particles and grease on the drain and then you can put it back. This firstly helps you to clear out your drain avoid a lot of unnecessary smell and the recommendation is that you need to do this at least once a month.

2- Use Vinegar to Clean and Deodorise

Second recommendation to get rid of the smell from your dishwasher is to use vinegar now vinegar is a multi-purpose cleaner and it can help to deodorize so to say your dishwasher all you need to do is take one cup of vinegar in a dishwasher safe container and keep it in the middle tray or the top ring and run a full cycle with just vinegar in the dishwasher this helps to clean out the grunt from the walls of the dishwasher as well as remove some amount of salt now after you run the vinegar.

3- Use Baking Soda to Remove Grease

If you’re still seeing a lot of smell or if you’re still seeing a lot of dirt settled in the walls of your dishwasher you can use baking soda, now baking soda is another multi-purpose cleaner that can be used, it is stronger than vinegar and can be used on a very frequent basis for cleaning a number of things.

According to Sparkle and Shine, baking soda remove the hard water deposits inside your dishwasher that accumulates inside your dishwasher.

So what you need to do is take about a 1/4th cup of baking soda with 1 cup of white vinegar and put it at the bottom of your dishwasher and run about half an hour cycle to make sure that the baking soda works its charm once this is done.

If you’re still seeing a little bit of grunt on your dishwasher i recommend you take a toothbrush and mildly clean the areas where you’re still seeing a grunt.

4- Use a Descaler to remove Salt Residue

The fourth recommendation is to use a descaler now you can use a descaler on a frequent basis, once a month is the recommendation this is primarily to remove the salts that are formed by the hard water you will see a lot of salt residue at the bottom of your dishwasher,

in mind i see it very close to the doors itself at the place where the door closes and normally i would just clean it off with a cloth but it is recommended that you use a dishwasher descaler on a frequent basis to make sure that

the functioning of your dishwasher is not handled. A quick way to identify if you really need to descale your dishwasher is if you start seeing some salt residue on your vessels after washing itself this is a telltale sign that your dishwasher is getting scaled and it needs to be descaled pretty quickly.

5- Clean the Fans

The last but not the least is to make sure that the fans in your dishwasher are working fine in a two to three month frequency try to remove the fans you can just unscrew them fairly easily take a toothpick and poke a hole within the holes of the fans itself to make sure that if there are any residues that are stuck within the holes itself.

you’re able to take it out and then run your fans under running water to make sure that you get rid of all the residue that is there it is recommended that you do this on a fairly frequent basis

once in two to three months to make sure that the flow of water to your vessels from the fans is not hampered.

According to The Maids set your dishwasher temperature to a minimum of 49 degree celcius(120 fahrenheit) for proper cleaning.
