How to Clean Odor from Dishwasher
LESLIE: Stan in Texas, you’ve got The Money Pit. How can we help you today?
STAN: I’m at the end of my – remodeling my house.
STAN: And installed the new dishwasher because after the remodel, we’ll put it up for sale. And when I put the dishwasher in, I noticed we started getting an odor out of the dishwasher that I didn’t have before.
TOM: Hmm. OK. And this is a brand-new dishwasher?
STAN: Brand-new dishwasher, yes.
TOM: Well, I wonder what kind of nasty debris would have collected so quickly. But here is what I would suggest. There’s a product on the market that is a dishwasher cleaner. It’s made by a company called Glisten. And it’s called Dishwasher Magic.
And it is quite easy to use. It’s essentially a bottle where you loosen the cap, turn it upside down and put it in your dishwasher as it if it were another piece of glassware to wash. And the cleaner comes out during the wash cycle and completely scrubs and cleans and disinfects the dishwasher. In fact, it’s the only EPA-registered dishwasher cleaner. And I’ve used it at my house and it works really well. And it was quite amazing how bright and shiny and clean and odor-free the dishwasher was at the end of the cycle.
STAN: OK. That’s Glisten, right?
TOM: Yep. Glisten Dishwasher Magic. You can find it in your local supermarkets and home centers. Go to their website at GlistenCleaners.com. They have coupons there and a list of a whole bunch of stores where it’s available.
STAN: OK. Appreciate it. I’ll try that.
TOM: Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
