Someone asked me about removing water stains from the front of a stainless steel dishwasher the other day and I wasn’t sure if I could figure out how to resolve that problem. Then it dawned on me…why not use our DIY Kitchen Sink Cleaner recipe?! It worked perfectly for the sink, so it should work perfectly for the dishwasher!
Now, I did modify the recipe a bit because I wanted to make a cleaning concoction thick enough to sit vertically on the dishwasher without slipping off. Even with a few tweaks, this cleaner worked perfectly!
It’s pretty difficult to see what I’m fighting so here is a close up shot…
It looks pretty bad when you’re standing right in front of it.
Now that you have an idea as to what I’m trying to get rid of, we can move on.
So, here’s what you’re going to need:
- Baking Soda
- Lemon Juice
- Olive Oil
- Soft Cloth
Mix 1/4 cup vinegar to 1/2 cup baking soda. Add a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of olive oil. Stir all of your ingredients so they form a paste. Once your paste is made, take a soft cloth and dip it into your mixture and rub it in small circles over your dishwasher and cover the entire surface.
Leave the mixture on for 5 to 10 minutes, dampen you cloth and wipe off.
Once the dishwasher has been wiped off, you can add a few drops of olive oil to a soft cloth and buff it right into the dishwasher surface to give it an even better shine!
Here is my end result…
It might not be perfect but it certainly looks 99% better! I’m happy!!!
I hope this post helps to make your cleaning journey fabulous!
