How To Clean A Glass Jar Or Jar Spout From Dirty Water

It is imperative that you do not use distilled water or bottled water to wash your dishes. Not only will the process be less efficient, it will also result in a less convenient, slower and messy disposal procedure.

You should always use clean water to wash your dishes. But you must also be careful to keep the jar or jar Spout from being dirty by using only the very clean water that you put in the dishwasher the first time. Read on to learn how to clean this dishwasher draining fixture from dirty, dirty water.

First get the dishwasher draining unit clean as possible.  Don’t use any dishwasher cleaning gel or other similar products to get the job done. You probably won’t be able to get the job done as a gel, but even a small amount of dish soap, water or cold water will work just fine as dish soap is not detergent enough to properly clean your sink.

Next, remove the drain plug.  You need to remove the drain plug to drain all of the liquid from the drain.  Then, turn off the dishwasher before you try to clean anything.

When the plug is off, look for the drain plug, it should be located near the outside of the unit.  Push the plug into place to connect the outlet to the dishwasher draining plug.  You will be using this in a moment, but don’t remove the drain plug just yet.  Instead, turn the outlet by hand to its fully open position to drain the dishwasher.  At this point, you should still see water from the faucet, don’t remove this.

After all water is drained, you can try to clean your dishwasher draining fixture.  You should use a toothpick or similar object to clean the dishwasher draining fixture.  If you have any dishwasher cleaning gel and/or other similar chemicals, remove them from your hands and dispose of them in a trash can, not the dishwasher drain.  The dishwasher drain is not a garbage disposal.

You can use a bottle brush or similar objects to clean the outside of your dishwasher draining fixture.  If you have a dishwasher that came with a sink attachment, you may be able to use it for this next step.  If you don’t have a sink-attachment with a drain, try using a clean sponge or clean sponge water sponge. Use either a toothpick or similar object to clean the front of your dishwasher draining fixture.  Now, carefully move the sponge or toothpick across the outside of the dishwasher draining fixture to thoroughly clean the surface of the dishwasher draining fixture.  You should only clean the area where you want to remove the drain plug at this point, you don’t want to accidentally scrape anything down the drain of the dishwasher.  If you need to add more water, you should then add it to the dishwasher draining fixture by filling a small cup with water using a bottle brush or similar object.  Now when you reach the top of the dishwasher drain plug and you need to clean the front edge of the drain plug, fill the cup with water and place it over the drain plug’s top edge with the water level just below the plug’s top edge.  When the water level becomes higher than the plug’s upper front edge, it means you are ready to remove the plug from the drain.  Now that your drain is clean and your cleaning is complete, let’s start removing the drain plug.

Use a needle-nose pliers to squeeze the inner part of the drain plug.
