‘Causes serious and permanent damage’: Four things to avoid cleaning with white vinegar


Some also suggest using vinegar to descale your dishwasher, or recommend it as a rinse aid. 

But vinegar can tarnish the stainless steel insides of your dishwasher and deteriorate any rubber seals, such as the door seal, pump and drain pipe, potentially leading to leaking in the long run. 

What’s more, if vinegar mixes with salty residue during the cycle, it can discolour metal dishware and utensils.

You shouldn’t ever have to worry about limescale if you use dishwasher salt as it softens the water, and in terms of rinse aid and dishwasher cleaner, stick with products specifically designed for this purpose as they are the best choice.
