Best dishwasher cleaner for hard water deposits and soap scum build-up
Helpful Tips & Hints

  • Wipe around the edges of the door and around the gasket. This space doesn't get washed during the dishwasher cycle. Use a damp cloth and, if you like, a bit of rust stain remover with an old toothbrush or other soft bristled brush.
  • Clean under the bottom of the door. In some dishwashers, this is a dead spot where water doesn't go, so it can accumulate debris. Wipe this off.
  • Run the garbage disposer before starting the dishwasher. The dishwasher drains into the same pipe as your sink, so that drain must be clear.
  • Run a bit of hot water in your sink before running the dishwasher. You will get cleaner dishes if the water starts hot. You can collect the water you run and use it for watering plants or other purposes. Run the water until what comes out of the tap feels hot.
  • Use only detergents designed for use in dishwashers. Do not use the liquid dish soap that you use to wash dishes by hand. The dishwasher is designed to contain water spraying from certain directions, not a thick layer of suds. You'll only make a mess.
  • Regularly clean of your dishwasher. It is recommended by all manufacturers to maintain maximum cleaning performance.
  • Dishwasher Magic is safe. It can be used for all dishwasher model interiors, plumbing and septic systems.
