Make Dishes Fresh and Sparkly with a Lemon Wedge In the Dishwasher

Lemons have the power to remove rust from your knives and de-stink your garbage disposal, but they can also make a whole load of dishes smell great and shine like they’re brand new.

It’s not a secret that lemon juice combats odor and gets stuff clean, but Cambria Bold at The Kitchn found a way to easily harness that power. Every time you do a load of dishes in your dishwasher, stick a lemon wedge up in the top rack on a skewer or in your cutlery department. After a normal wash, you’ll get a faint lemon scent and the tiny bit of citric acid left in the wedge will make everything look spotless. You can even do this with a used lemon wedge if you have any left over from cooking or other tasks. Don’t throw those leftover wedges out, throw them in the dishwasher.
