06 Apr Cleaning Your Dishwasher // Natural Cleaning 101
Cleaning your home the natural way is actually much easier than you think, plus it can smell great, too! I’m all about keeping a clean house without all the harmful chemicals that come with modern-day cleaning solutions. Nesting towards the end of pregnancy is VERY real, and with a new baby in the house, I don’t want any toxins or potential allergens that could make my sweet little love bug react to negatively. Now that springtime is here, I’m going to share my favorite nesting recipes for all-natural cleaning solutions that may help you make the most of your spring cleaning naturally.
So, we’re headed around the house on a Natural Spring Cleaning kick this month, to get our homes ready for a new season! Today, we’re back in the kitchen cleaning a… cleaner? Yes, you heard me. We’re cleaning the dishwasher so that it can help us sanitize our dishes effectively! Sometimes the cleaners need some cleaning, too! Believe it or not, it’s actually very simple to do and won’t require much work from you! Score!
Spring Cleaning is all about the details… getting to those hard-to-reach places that we don’t touch as often as we should, right? This recipe is easy to make and can help disinfect and sanitize your dishwasher! And it’s not really a recipe… it’s more just like a tip or trick. It’s THAT easy!
cleaning your dishwasher naturally:
This is the easiest thing to do and will make you feel like you’ve accomplished so much while doing so little!
- Fill a measuring cup with 2 cups of white vinegar and put it right- side up on the top shelf of an empty dishwasher.
- Then, run your dishwasher like you normally would (I put mine on sanitize) and wait until it’s done!
- BONUS TIP: Want to give your washer a great smell? Add 20 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil to it and voila! You’re done!
That’s it! SUPER simple and effective. I’m all about that life! The vinegar breaks down any food particles in your dishwasher and removes any stinky smells! Plus, it’s disinfecting and sanitizing! This is something I recommend doing monthly to make sure your dishwasher is always clean and running smoothly!
Happy natural spring cleaning!
