Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

When I bought my house, the original dishwasher would always make my kitchen smell nasty while I ran it. Musty, mildew like smell. The smell would start as soon as the washing cycle did and last for several hours after it finished.

I replaced the appliance because it died the first year I lived here. I thought the smells would leave with the dead dish washer. Nope, they continued right on with a brand new one in it's place. YUCK!

Then I got Thieves Cleaner and read on one of these blogs about someone else using it in the dish washer. I decided to give it a try. I placed about a cap full in a load and ran it. No smell during the cycle. Hardly any smell there after. I ran the next cycle without the Thieves cleaner- and the smell seemed to come back but not as bad as before but I could still pick up the smell.

So now each time I run the appliance I am using a bit of Thieves cleaner in the cycle. I think perhaps there is a build up of sludge or something in the drainage system that the Thieves cleaner is slowly stripping out. I love that the cleaner makes the smell disappear. I have a couple people interested in the product now because I told them how pleased I was with this one method of use. I also use it in a spray bottle with water to wash down my kitchen counters. Smells so nice when you spray it on a dish rag.
