Woman reveals how often you REALLY need to clean your dishwasher and the grim reason why

A WOMAN has revealed you are forgetting to clean yet another thing in your home: the dishwasher.

Yes, you still need to clean something that washes your dishes.

A Florida mommy blogger – who goes by the name of Jettset Farmhouse on social media – revealed in a video that, if you are the proud owner of a dishwasher, you need to clean the filter after every load or at least every week.

All you need to do is remove the bottom rack and pop out the filter that's visible under the fan and clean it with warm, soapy water.

She also added that every two months, you need to actually clean the entirety of the dishwasher.

"Begin by putting a dishwasher-safe bowl on the top shelf and running it on the hottest cycle it can," the mom of six said.

"While that cycle is running, give your filter a nice deep clean in the sink with some dish soap and a brush.

"When that cycle is over, remove the vinegar and sprinkle the bottom of the dishwasher with some baking soda.

"Run another hot cycle and scrub off any dirt you see in the machine."

She also reminded those watching her that they need to scrub any dirt that could have accumulated by the door.

Previously, another cleaning expert had revealed the perfect way to clean your garbage disposal and you only need three things.

“Start off by boiling some water. Once it's boiled, you’re going to pour it down your disposal,” she began in a video showing the process. 

“What this will do is it breaks down any grease or oil that has caked up inside there.”

She said to then dump half a cup of baking soda and between half a cup and one cup of vinegar down the drain.

“Let it fizz up and let it sit for 10 minutes,” the clever woman advised.

“After 10 minutes, pour down some warm water and that’s it.”

However, some have warned against this hack because boiling water has the potential to damage PVC pipes and cause leaks. 

 If you don’t have vinegar, there’s another hack that is said to get your garbage disposal squeaky clean with ice and hot water.

"Shove a bunch of ice down into your garbage disposal," a person said in a different cleaning video shared online. 

"Then while it's running, you turn on the hot water." 

If you do try to clean your disposal this way, you will see some dirty water pool in the sink, but don’t fret – it will go back down the drain and be flushed away.
