Over time, odor can build up on the surfaces inside your dishwasher and in hard-to-clean places like the hoses and grinding mechanism of your disposal. Running a cycle or using bleach may temporarily mask this odor- which can be a result of lingering food particles, residue and even mineral build up – but it won’t remove it completely.
Once-monthly maintenance can help remove odors caused mineral build-up -
In 2010 all dishwasher detergents sold in the U.S. will be required to be phosphate–free. While this is very good for the environment, it may leave your dishwasher with more odor–causing mineral build–up than before. Only affresh™ Dishwasher and Disposal Cleaner is designed to remove odor caused by calcium deposits when used as part of a monthly maintenance program for your dishwasher.
How to Use the affresh™ Dishwasher & Disposal Cleaner
Use 2 tablets in the dishwasher
- Use 2 tablets in the dishwasher
- Run the dishwasher on the heaviest cycle with hot water.
Use 1 tablet in the garbage disposal
- Place the tablet in the garbage disposal, turn on the hot water to a slow flow, and run the disposal 15 seconds. If you are cleaning the dishwasher, do not flush the sink. The water exiting into the sink drain will clear the disposal of any remaining cleaner. To clean the disposal only, follow this step then flush with hot water for 2 minutes.
That's it! - 3 easy steps once a month for a cleaner, fresher-smelling kitchen!
