This isn’t the first time I’ve had to clean out all of the black gunk and slimy food debris from the dishwasher basket in the far back. The first time, I was able to fix the dishwasher not draining. THIS time, there was no water backing up… just a bunch of food and grime buildup which was making our dishwasher run poorly. Here’s how to clean a clogged dishwasher and remove the black gunk quickly & easily.
I’m not sure why, but for all of my 43 years I have resisted the urge to try Jet-Dry in the dishwasher. I think because I believed it was just a lot of hype, and it seemed wasteful to spend money on something that got your dishes looking ‘extra clean’. (Isn’t ‘clean’ enough?) Well, I’m here to tell you, I tried Jet-Dry for the very first time this week. And now I’m hooked.
