affresh Dishwasher cleaner


Many Canadians rely on their dishwashers to clean their dishes every day. What your readers may not know is that residue can build up inside dishwashers over time. This residue can be found in almost any dishwasher, especially if recommended use and care isn’t followed.

Fortunately for Canadians, affresh Dishwasher cleaner is designed to remove odour-causing residue, leaving a cleaner, fresher dishwasher.

I recently had the opportunity to product test the affresh Dishwasher cleaner.   Mind you my dishwasher isn’t that old –3 to 4 years old and not so dirty either.  But there was a tiny smell that you could sniff if you would put you face in the dishwasher and inhale.

So this morning – literally – I decided to proceed to a cleaning that only affresh could do.

I remove any dishes that was in there and place one tabled in the main detergent tray.  I close the tray and place another table in the bottom of the dishwasher.

After closing the dishwasher, I ran it.   Apparently I was supposed to use the most aggressive cycle – heavy duty scrub, heated water… etc.   OUPS!   I didn’t but throughout the cycle I could small a lemony scent coming out of the dishwasher.

Ninety minutes later, my dishwasher stopped.  I was curious and opened it up right away.    The interior smelled lemons and I find that the sides of the dishwasher looked whiter than usual.  

There is no doubt in my mind that affresh is doing a good job at refreshing and cleaning a dishwasher.    A package contains enough supply to cover three months.   Mind you I am not planning to do this on a monthly basis as I doubt my dishwasher is that dirty.  

I was curious to see who is behind the affresh Dishwasher cleaner and discovered that the trademark is own by Whirlpool. KitchenAid and Maytag.  

I don’t know about other people’s dishwasher but one thing is certain, our dishwasher doesn’t smell that much.  Mind you affresh would probably do wonders for an older dishwasher that has seen many cycles and dirty dishes.   For a new dishwasher, I find the product might be a little bit expensive, but after seeing the cleaning it has done in my dishwasher, I think it would be a good investment for an older dishwasher.

Affresh is non-corrosive, contains no phosphates and is safe for use in areas with septic systems.
