Do You Clean Your Dishwasher?

Have you ever had a sticky dishwasher? Maybe one that recently started leaving residue all over your dishes? My dishwasher is terrible for that right now, and it drives me almost insane! After all, I don’t have time to re-wash a dishwasher full of dishes. I must have tried a dozen different brands of dishwasher powders, gels and tabs – and nothing helped. It’s a fact that tiny bits of food, which aren’t properly rinsed away, build up over time causing that terrible odor and interferes with the cleaning of the dishes. Makes sense, right?

TextIt’s recommended to clean all brands of dishwashers and garbage disposals from time to time, and not by simply switching soaps. Cleaning your dishwasher or garbage disposal is actually easier than you think! . Whirlpool developed affresh® Dishwasher and Disposal Cleaner, an extension of the affresh® washer cleaner brand, to clean unseen particles that can cause odor. With summer here, the windows in my house are open and we love to smell that fresh summer air. Instead, I have smelly dishwasher. I was recently send some Affresh, thanks to a Mom Central blog tour, to try out on my own dishwasher. I’ll report back with all the details on how it worked – And, if that smell is gone!

Have you tried Affresh on your dishwasher before? Do you have a stinky dishwasher?

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of affresh and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.


  1. hahahaha!! You read my mind!!! I was just talking to one of my kids yesterday about the funny smell coming from the dishwasher! I’ll put this on my grocery list!

  2. My dishwasher is almost brand new, but it’s good to know that something is available when I need it.

  3. I’ve tried other things to clean my dishwasher… this looks great! We have such hard water that it seems like I’m having to clean my dishwasher pretty often. Looking forward to seeing how these work.

  4. Too funny! I just bought this a couple of weeks ago after we were getting some yucky residue on our glasses. Seemed to do the trick!

  5. I think this is just what I need too! I was scrubbing the inside of my dishwasher by hand last week which seems completely ridiculous…..I think I will try these…thanks!
