How to Clean a Dishwasher Filter
You won't be able to look away.
We’ve learned plenty of tricks from TikTok, from how to fill an ice cube tray to ridiculously good painting hacks. If there’s one thing TikTok’s good at, it’s teaching us some pretty good life lessons…like the fact that everyone should be cleaning their dishwasher filter.
Yes, dishwasher filters are a real thing—and yes, they need to be cleaned regularly.

OK, so that was kind of awful. But it’s also kind of…nice? To know it can be cleaned, that is. Hey, if that filter can be cleaned, there’s hope for us all.
