‘Here is the simplest way to get cleaner dishes,’ Chantel posted in one of her recent TikTok videos.

‘Next, get a jug or cup and fill it with white vinegar,’ Chantel said.

Then, place it on the top shelf of your dishwasher where you might store glasses and cups.

‘Run the dishwasher at the hottest temperature for a normal cycle and then let it air dry,’ she said.  

This should give your dishwasher a ‘deep clean’, and ensure your dishes come out cleaner, brighter and whiter.

The reason why the vinegar works so well is because it breaks down any remaining food, grime, soap scum and residue that is left over in the dishwasher. 

It also helps to sterilise your machine and flush grease, limescale and deposits out of the pipes ahead of its next use. 

Others recommend throwing in a handful of baking soda to the dishwasher before running it, as this helps to get rid of stubborn smells.

Thousands of people who saw Chantel’s hack were impressed with it, and said they would certainly be giving their dishwasher a deep clean.

‘I’m saving this as I have a house inspection coming up and want it cleaner than it already is,’ one commenter posted.

‘Thank you for this, wow I never knew,’ another added.

Others confessed they thought their dishwasher was ‘self-washing’ whenever they ran a cycle.

Shocking photos shared in January revealed why you should clean your dishwasher filter at least once a month.

The pictures shared on Facebook show a cylindrical filter speckled with tiny black dots and a layer of caked white crust.

A mother shared the photos in an Australian Facebook group, warning others about the grime and ‘black mould’ that appears to have accumulated inside her machine over a short period of time.

After a few minutes, the mum said she submerged the filter in dishwashing tablets dissolved in water to eliminate mould residue before slotting it back into the machine.

Prolonged exposure to spores from black mould can cause myriad health problems including nausea, vomiting and bleeding in the lungs and nose.

‘I usually toss anything mouldy out. But I can’t really do this here,’ the mum added.
