I had the opportunity thanks to Affresh and Crowdtap to try three appliance cleaners. As I am preparing for a move, cleaning the house is all the more important. I've had a dishwasher for the better part of 2-3 years, and almost every time it's caused my dishes to come out dirtier than they went in. And with the amount of coffee we make in the home, I was MOST eager to try out the coffee-maker cleaner!
First up: Coffee-maker
Look at all that ick! Every pot of coffee made recently has had that mixed in! Post-rinse, the whole maker, and carafe, were perfectly clean: Quite literally looked like new. Normally, I have to rinse 3-4 times after cleaning with vinegar, but this required just the one rinse, and the next brew was a pot of coffee that tastes delicious and pure.
I'm quite pleased, myself, with how this turned out. I would recommend!
Next up: Sink
This was intended to be used with a garbage disposal, but since we don't have one right now, I broke up the tablet and poured it into the drain, but otherwise used it per directions. It surprisingly did pretty well, and dissolved some of the food-bits that had inevitably been left in the drain from rinsing plates over time. I didn't think the sink needed a drain-cleaning, but after using this Affresh sample, it drained even better than usual, so... It would appear I was wrong!
I was also pleased with how this turned out, and I am eager to someday try it in conjunction with an actual garbage disposal. If it works as well with one, I'd recommend this as well!
Ahhh the dishwasher. This one was the wildcard. I bought this dishwasher a few years ago, second-hand, hoping to make it easy on myself to do dishes. Then despite thorough cleanings, with all kinds of cleansers, dishes kept coming out DIRTIER than when they went in. I hoped for the best, and ran a cycle with a light load of dishes, albeit some were quite dirty.
And, I was quite surprised! Everything was not only clean, it was shimmering and spotless. I don't know if it will hold the cleanliness with further cleanings, or if I'll have to use a pod with each load; But even if that is the case, it is more than worth it for this result. I HIGHLY recommend this one. If it can help this dishwasher, it can help ANY dishwasher.
