Spring is about to be sprung and before I head out to the golf course here comes the honey-do list! Yes, I am preparing for spring cleaning. Well, Mary is making the list, and I guess I’m going to do what’s on it. I have been informed that one of my tasks is cleaning the inside of the dishwasher. Of course being a man, I am having a hard time understanding how our dishes and silverware come clean after the dishwashing cycle is complete if inside of the dishwasher is dirty. Really?! I pose the question to her and she simply opens up the dishwasher and has me shine a light on the stainless steel inside. To my surprise, I see lime deposits, grease and hard water marks. I’m thinking this is going to be a long afternoon of crouching and scrubbing until she hands me Dishwasher Magic. The bottle says it’s going to clean, freshen and disinfect (apparently there can be some harmful bacteria growing in there). I’m skeptical, but it’s definitely worth a try!
The next day, I timed myself to see how long it took me to complete the task. What I thought was going to be several hours of labor ended up taking the length of one dishwasher cycle. And, since it was totally hands off cleaning, I had time to hit a bucket of balls, so Mary and I are both happy! Here are the steps I took:
- Make sure the dishwasher is empty
- Unscrew the cap from the dishwasher magic
- Place in utensil basket, upside down
- Close door
- Set cycle for longest wash cycle, using the hottest water possible
- Start dishwasher
- Take a break, hit the driving range
- When dishwasher is finished, open door
- Look inside
- Get Mary and have her look inside
- Like shiny and new inside again, WOW!
