Stinky Dishwasher?


We clean the fridge and stove to keep them running their best, but do you routinely care for your dishwasher too? Ever notice a stink coming from your dishwasher? I previously told you that I would be testing out Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner thanks to Mom Central, and I’m back with my final thoughts.

You see, If food residue isn’t completely rinsed away or if you don’t routinely follow the steps to clean and care for your dishwasher, odors can develop in almost any dishwasher. And since I rely my dishwasher very much, I need to ensure that it’ll last….and ahem, not stink!

Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner is formulated to produce powerful oxygenated cleaning action, circulating cleaning bubbles in hard to clean areas to penetrate, dissolve or remove odor-causing residue. And, it’s as easy to use as running a wash cycle, no scrubbing required. Just place one lemon-scented tablet in the main detergent tray and another in the pre-wash tray and run {with no dishes inside} on the heaviest and hottest cycle. And voila, food residues and odor were eliminated, leaving only a clean and very light lemon scent. It’s a really easy to clean your dishwasher and worked very well. Really, it’s a no-hassle step that you need only do once per month, and is entirely safe for the plumbing. Did I mention there’s no scrubbing required?

So, I did notice the smell disappeared after using Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner. Actually, it was gone at first use! That alone made me thrilled – I really detest that stink. Especially on an appiance that is supposed to clean things! Now I use them every couple of weeks, just to be sure. Great product!

Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner is the #1 recommended cleaner by top companies such as KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Maytag and Amana brands. It’s available at Walmart and major home appliance stores, and costs less than $6 for a 3 month supply.

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. Thanks for the review. I see products and wonder if they really work. It’s nice to hear from someone who has tried it.

  2. Affresh also make a front loader washer cleaner. To be honest, I used the whole 3 month supply in one day, and didn’t find it made a difference.
