We are starting our second week in Taking Back the Kitchen in 31 Days. Today is a fairly easy one in my opinion...cleaning the dishwasher. For the most part, the machine does the work for us, but there is a little scrubbing required. Here's what I do:

the middle of the top rack. Pour a little bit of vinegar in the bottom
of the dishwasher as well.
3. Run the dishwasher like normal, with only the vinegar filled glass in it.
4. After the cycle is done, wipe the dishwasher down with a wet rag again.
What a difference! Especially in the bottom of the dishwasher:
