People are only just realising how often their dishwasher needs cleaning & if you look at yours it's probably gross | The Sun

HAVE you ever been in your kitchen, only to notice there's a rather unpleasant smell lingering that you just can't get to the bottom of?

Well, according to one cleaning whizz, your dishwasher may be the culprit.

The woman, known as @later_kates online, took to TikTok and posted a video where she says: "When I tell people that their dishwasher has a filter that needs to be cleaned."

She's then seen pulling out the bottom tray of her dishwasher so that she can get to the filter that's underneath.

The cleaning guru captioned the post: "If you’ve never checked yours before be prepared they can get pretty gross.

Don’t say I didn't warn you!"
