Our dishwasher is smelling and looked dirty. My Aunt told me to use Tang the powder drink mix. You only use a teaspoon and run the dishwasher on normal without any dishes. It cleans the dishwasher plus leaves a orange smell. Also, if you only use a teaspoon of dishwasher liquid soap or a 1/2 of the powder when you run the dishwasher the dishes come clean without any residue. Plus save money.

I recently started using soapnuts for my laundry, dishwasher & general cleaning. Great for people, the environment & eliminating several products for one.224
Soap Nuts are actually berries. They are also good for people with allergies & anti-microbial (good for the septic system). I make a liquid with mine for the laundry & scent it with lavender & orange essential oil
Clean lime deposits and iron stains inside the dishwasher by pouring a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid or Tang (the only flavor that works) into the detergent cup and running the (empty) dishwasher. The citric acid in the mix wipes out stains; you don't have to. 432
