De­bris ac­cu­mu­lates in to­day’s dish­wash­ers

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - REENA NERBAS

QI am very fed up with my dish­washer. Af­ter run­ning a cy­cle, the bot­tom and in­sides of cups are caked with baked-on food, and cut­lery ends up with food hard­ened onto each piece. This dish­washer was ex­pen­sive, and it is only two years old. What can I do to fix this prob­lem? Al­bert (Stein­bach) AN­SWER: New dish­wash­ers are made to be wa­ter ef­fi­cient and use less en­ergy. In my opin­ion, dish­wash­ers don’t clean as well as they once did. The ap­pli­ances use less wa­ter and the basin tends to clog up, re­quir­ing regular clean­ing be­cause de­bris in the bot­tom of the dish­washer pre­vents the wa­ter from cir­cu­lat­ing prop­erly. Ei­ther hire some­one or take the dish­washer apart on your own. Af­ter the dish­washer basin is dis­as­sem­bled, you will see all kinds of de­bris, such as tooth­picks, chicken bones and pieces of gar­lic. Clean and re­assem­ble the dish­washer. With regular main­te­nance, your dish­washer should run well. Q: I read your hints in the news­pa­per ev­ery week­end and use many of the so­lu­tions. I moved our fridge to clean un­der­neath and no­ticed there is a dented line on the floor­ing. Is there any­thing that can be done to lessen the dent? Thanks, Miriam, Win­nipeg
