Place a cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor.
Absolutely love this idea for Christmas gifts for friends: Pampering in a jar - warm fuzzy socks, lip balm, hand lotion or bubble bath, some tea or cocoa and chocolates, add a bit of ribbon and a tag. Everything a girl needs to get through winter :)
