To clean the dishwasher with a bleacher you will need to:

  1. Remove all dishes from the dishwasher.
  2. Place container with active substance in the cutlery basket.
  3. Start quick washing mode.


The most important thing is to make sure that aggressive bleacher is suitable for all parts of the dishwasher. By the way, you can learn about the appropriate and safe cleaning means in the dishwasher manual.

Compliance with the temperature regime guarantees the required result: cleaning at a temperature of 60-70 ° C will destroy limescale, mold, the remains of food, and the appliance will get rid of the musty smell.

This procedure might not be enough to achieve the ideal result. If you look more closely, you can notice the shortcomings of such cleaning in hard-to-reach places. Therefore, you will need to put on the gloves, arm yourself with a household brush and a sponge. The brush can be used to clean filters and trays under running water. Removable parts can be soaked in a basin with a bleacher. It makes sense to do it with all plastic elements. Stainless steel does not like the touch of chlorine.

If the elements cannot be removed, take a sponge soaked in a bleacher, and thoroughly wipe all surfaces.

Mesh filter must be cleaned at least once a week, otherwise it might cause water stagnation and you might smell an unpleasant odor.

In the final stage of the procedure we should get rid of excess moisture. After the cleaning with a bleacher is complete, the internal surface of the appliance needs to be wiped dry. Soft flannel fabric will be a good option for that. Look at how clean the dishwasher has become.

You may not wipe the inside parts and simply leave the door open for 2-3 hours. This will be enough to remove the excess moisture.
