Plastic Tub Odor - Dishwasher
Is there a new plastic smell?
This is a normal smell and should dissipate with time (about 2 weeks). Try running a white vinegar rinse or using affresh® to help remove the odor.
Run a white vinegar rinse to reduce odor:
- Wash and rinse dishes. Do not use a heated dry option. Use an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Remove all silverware or metal items.
- Put 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack.
- Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent. The vinegar will mix with the wash water.
- Run the dishwasher through a normal cycle with detergent after cleaning the interior.
affresh® cleaners are available at many retailers. Find one here.
