Mix powdered dishwasher detergent and water in a small bowl to form a paste.
Use a damp sponge to apply the paste to the inside of the dishwasher. Rub the interior of the dishwasher to remove any stains or dried-on food.
Pour 2 cups of white vinegar into a dishwasher-safe cup or bowl. Place this bowl upright on the bottom rack of the dishwasher.
Run a normal dishwasher cycle using no detergent and the air dry or energy-saving dry setting.
Wipe down the exterior of the dishwasher with a damp cloth. If there are stubborn stains, use a mild soap or detergent to remove them.
