How to clean your vitamix dishwasher fastest?
Make a habit of regularly cleaning it the right way so that nasty stains won’t ever appear. This guide into cleaning a vitamix dishwasher container will hopefully help you in making it look like brand new again.
Vitamix dishwasher can turn cloudy over time from mineral build up. The minerals come from your water supply (in hard water areas) and from your fruits and veggies. Greens used in Green Smoothies are especially filled with minerals that are wonderful in your body, but not so wonderful in multiple, micro-thin layers on the insides of your container!
If you only clean your container the way you see demonstrators doing it in their shows (spin on High with a little bit of soapy water then rinse and then allow it to drip-dry), over time, you will end up with a cloudy container .
How To Regularly Clean Your Vitamix dishwasher
If you are lucky, you found this article before you got a Vitamix, right after you got one, or while your container is still bright, clear, and shiny.
To prevent the minerals from building up on your container use one or both of the following methods:
1) Clean with a bottle brush and drip dry. Or…
2) Clean with the spin-with-water-and-soap-on-high method that Vitamix teaches, then hand dry with split fiber microfiber cloths.
Both methods involve physical contact with the inside of the container which helps to knock the minerals off of the sides, and prevents them from building up over time. Either method will work by itself to keep the minerals from sticking to the sides of your container (but if you are OCD like me, you will do both).
