Add in a generous amount of the home-made oxy-clean and a good squirt of liquid dishwashing soap. Make sure the clothes are fully submerged. Let it sit for a minimum of four hours. Pour the clothes and extra liquid into your washing machine and wash as usual.

HOW TO CLEAN DISHWASHER Place a cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Run the dishwasher with hottest water. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short but complete cycle using the hottest water. The baking soda will help freshen the smell of the dishwasher as well as brighten up and removing stains.
