Why should I clean my dishwasher filter?
It’s important to keep your dishwasher filter clean so that your dishes come out clean and sparkling.
Dishwasher filters prevent small, soggy bits of food from landing on your clean dishes. But over time, they can become clogged with grease and grime. When this happens, your dishwasher has to work harder to clean your dishes, and you may notice that they’re not as clean as they used to be.
But how often should you clean it?
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
– The type of water you have in your home. If you have hard water, you’ll need to clean your filter more often.
– The amount of use your dishwasher gets. If you use it multiple times a day, you’ll need to clean the filter more often than if you only use it once a day.
– The type of detergent you use. Some detergents are more likely to cause build-up on your dishwasher filter than others.
Generally speaking, you should clean your dishwasher filter at least once a month. But if you notice that your dishes are not coming out as clean as they should be, it’s time to give the filter a good cleaning.
It’s easy to clean
Cleaning your dishwasher filter is a simple task that you can do yourself. Just remove the filter and rinse it off with hot water. If it’s really dirty, you may need to scrub it with a brush to get all the gunk out.
Once you’ve cleaned the filter, be sure to put it back in place
If your dishwasher filter is clogged, don’t wait to clean it. A little preventive maintenance will go a long way in keeping your dishwasher running smoothly.
