How to Clean Your Dishwasher

(great to remember for move-out or in) Place a dishwasher-safe 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. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.... good to do every 6 mths

Set your stair rise to 7-1/4 in. and tread to 11 in. Leave a minimum of 3-1/2 in. of wood perpendicular to the back of the stringer and the deepest cutout.
