    Consumer experts have revealed the biggest cleaning mistakes you are making at home, from pre-rinsing dishes to using bleach to remove mould. Australian consumer group CHOICE has compiled a list of blunders many are all guilty of when it comes to domestic chores - and there are a number of serious mistakes that actually leave your home filthy.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Sometimes the simple things can cause the most ridiculous disagreements in the household. Case in point: Loading the dishwasher!

    The inside of a dishwasher can easily become one of the dirtiest spots in a kitchen. EHStock/Getty Images Food scraps, grease, and soap build up inside a dishwasher over time, making it smelly and less efficient. Experts recommend a monthly deep cleaning — or a biweekly one if you use the machine more than once a day. A hot rinse using vinegar or bleach will thoroughly sanitize the interior of a dishwasher. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you're looking for something to clean, the best items to start with are arguably the most overlooked: the appliances you use to clean with. In the case of the kitchen, that notable distinction would go to the dishwasher. Because we think of dishwashers as self-cleaning, it's easy to forget that — much like our oven, refrigerator, and pots and pans — it's also a tool that needs a proper scrub, both inside and out.Daily dishwashing tipsMaintaining a spotless dishwasher starts long before you break out the cleaning supplies.

    As far as kitchen appliances go, few are as underappreciated as the dishwasher. In fact, it ranks as the least-used device in American homes, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That’s odd because: Hand-washing dishes is such a loathsome task that most people would prefer scrubbing a toilet, according to a 2017 survey. Doing your dishes by hand has been scientifically proven to be less effective than using a dishwasher. Using a dishwasher can save you nearly 10 days’ worth of hand-scrubbing over the course of a year. An energy-efficient dishwasher can cut your utility bills by $111 per year, as compared to washing and drying by hand. In the age of COVID-19, do you really want to take your chances that you’re not getting your dishes completely clean? So, what gives? After talking to appliance experts, it has become apparent that a great many dishwashers out there — maybe even the one in your kitchen — are actually in desperate need of replacement. Here are the signs your dishwasher is dying (or is basically already dead). The door...
    THERE is nothing more irritating than emptier the dishwasher to discover the load is still dirty. And contrary to popular belief rinsing your plates beforehand could actually be to blame according to one expert. 1Experts say there is no need to rinse plates before they go in the dishwasher and you are at risk of making them dirtier if you do soCredit: Alamy Australian cleaning expert Ashley Iredale told ABC there is “absolutely no need to pre-rinse” plates. He warned that people should skip the step completely if they want to avoid stubborn or ingrained stains. Ashley explains that most dishwashers are equipped with sensors that can tell how dirty items are so they can target problem areas. Therefore by pre-rinsing a dish you are essentially hiding problem areas from the machine. Ashley recommends simply scraping excess food into the bin before stacking them on the bottom shelf of the machine.

    There is no need to rinse plates and cutlery before loading them into a dishwasher, according to cleaning experts from lifestyle website Bon Appetit. Contrary to popular belief, they say there's no benefit to pre-rinsing crockery which only wastes time and water. Experts say dishwashers should always be filled from back to front to maximise space with cutlery pointing downwards to reduce risk of injury and the chance of smudging freshly cleaned stainless steel.  Sharp kitchen knives, wooden boards and pans should never be machine washed, according to experts who say it will damage the finish of the items as well as the inside of the dishwasher.

    Let’s get the ol’ “Why do I have to clean an appliance designed to clean things?” drivel out of the way right quick, shall we? Yes, your dishwasher cleans dishes, but no, your dishwasher is not clean itself, not if you haven’t taken the time to clean it in the past four or five weeks, anyway.  Is monthly dishwasher cleaning fun? No, not really. But if you have ever smelled a truly soiled dishwasher — and once you see the filth down there in the filter — you’ll make regular dishwasher cleaning a part of your regimen, grudgingly or not. To clean a dishwasher, first empty it out. Like completely, take out the racks, too, and clean those off with soap and water and set them aside. Then it’s time to get down in there and clean out that filter. If you still have your manual, consult it, but dishwasher filter cleaning really isn’t rocket science. The filter will be located at the bottom of the unit and will likely have two easily removed pieces, one a flat piece of...
