Easy Way to Clean the Dishwasher

As a busy mommy, I need my appliances to work. When my dishwasher is not doing the best job, I clean it with plain old white vinegar. I use a children's cup liberated from The Olive Garden. Fill it with about a cup of white vinegar. Place it on the top rack of the dishwasher and run the dishwasher.

This makes my dishwasher work better and life can go on without hand washing dishes!

I do this every three months or so. If there is food debris in the bottom, I may have one of my kids lean in to fish them out.

Hello World

Hello all,

            I am a busy mommy of three with a part-time job (that sometimes becomes closer to full time) and am enrolled in graduate school. I have eight year old twin boys and a new princess. My busy husband makes the third man in our house.
            I love the mommy blogs where you can find out how to make everything from scratch, but I don't have time for that.  This blog will include the short cuts and tricks I use to manage my busy life. Look for recipes, kitchen tricks, crafts and kids stuff.
