Many people think that they don't need to clean their dishwasher unless they live in hard water areas but cleaning the dirt, scum, food particles, grease and grime from the unseen areas of your dishwasher is essential.
Many products come in a combined form with cleaner and detergent included but this is not sufficient to effectively clean the build up of potentially health threatening bacteria.
All dishwashers need a thorough clean periodically. (This applied to washing machines too but at least you aren't washing your dishes in that!)
The problem I had was that mine is a half size dishwasher as there is only me to wash-up for. This means that the tablets, gel sachets, etc are unsuitable. They leave a residue behind because there is not so much water going through to dilute them.
Oust dishwasher cleaner comes in a sachet and it is in powdered for which means I can use half of it. (The other half goes in my washing machine to freshen it up.)
I had noticed that my dishwasher had a stale smell if it stood unused for a couple of days but using this product and running it through a full cycle has freshened it up.
I also noticed that the drain area inside the machine is clean, clear and sparkling and so are the stainless steel plates at the back and sides.
The only thing that I didn't like was that it left a powdery residue on the bottom seal and the front so I had to wipe that away in case it was caustic.
This is an excellent product, easy to use and effective.
If you live in a hard water area the effects of limescale are all too obvious, on sinks,toilets in the kettle. They are plain to see and are cleaned up. The effects on your washing machine are not noticeable. Over the years limescale and old powder residues build up inside the lining of the drum, on the heating element and throughout the machine. This effects the quality of your wash and will eventually lead to mechanical failure of the machine. Oust produce a wonderful remedy that is suitable for both washing machines and dishwashers. Simply pour a sachet of the powder directly into the drum and run a 60' wash. This will remove limescale from around the machine. The packet omes with two sachets, leaving one for the dishwasher. In a dishwasher it will remove both limescale and grease residues. This is a small price to pay against the cost of repairs caused by excessive limescale. **UPDATE** Having used both sachets on our very blocked up machine with a number of boil washes to loosen any remaining limescale / powder residue it's working a lot better. Clothes are coming up cleaner and the filter isn't getting blocked up with debris.
