How to clean a smelly dishwasher

What do you do when your dishwasher starts to smell funky? This was my dilemma a little while ago. Dishwashers need to be maintained and cleared of their built up residue otherwise they start to smell. While browsing I came across a product that was made for just this problem.

The product I used is Affresh dishwaher cleaner. It was my first time trying the product and you can watch my video review below to see if I would buy/use it again…or read on.


Easy to use. It doesn’t get any simpler than this product. All you have to do is pop it into your dishwasher soap case and run the dishwasher on a normal load. It is safe to use on your dishes as well. If you plan to use it with a load of dishes, simply place one tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher.

Inexpensive. Affresh dishwasher cleaner is $9.97  at Walmart for a package of three tablets. This product only needs to be used once a month which works out to be 3.32 for one tablet. In the states is even cheaper at about $6.00 for a package of 6 tablets. Clearly they are getting a much better deal.

Works! After using the Affresh dishwasher cleaner the odor disappeared. It’s been almost a month and there’s no smelly odor in my dishwasher

Con. For me, the downside of this product is that I personally have not seen it in other stores. You can buy it on amazon but besides Walmart (which is far from me) it’s not a product that is readily available.

Three Post Genoa Sofa Review

Any of my friends who plan to visit me will be very excited about this post because it means they will no longer have to sit on the floor. I finally committed to a sofa.

For 3 months I’ve been sitting on a dinky little chair but when I saw this couch on I knew that little chair would be replaced.

I bought this sofa on sale. Originally it’s priced at around $989. Wayfair offers free shipping if you spend over $75, however because most of their couches require at least a little assembly I decided to simply pay for their assembly package. Thus my total for this sofa came to a little over $800.


Now had I known that all one needs to do with this sofa is put on the back legs I would have saved myself the extra $50 for assembly. Also keep in mind that wayfair charges more for different upholstery. This one is the slate color and costs $100 more than the brown. But even with the extra fees I still ended up saving over $100 on this purchase. How do I feel about the sofa now that it’s here?


Genoa is a classic sofa that is great quality for the price. Majority of the other sofas I considered were over $1000 (usually on sale) and did not have the same glowing reviews as this couch. This is a sold piece of furniture that I’m sure I will have for a while.

One of the things that drew me to the Genoa sofa from Three Post is the wood trim at the bottom. It gives the couch a unique yet homey touch. The shape of the sofa itself is very stylish with its curved arms and back.

A few other things I like about this sofa are as follows:

The back cushions are attached. At first I thought this would be a con but it’s actually a pro since the cushy back cushions don’t need fluffing thus helping this sofa to be low maintenance.

The seat cushions can be removed but are attached with velcro which helps them to stay in place. No slipping and sliding.

It is comfortable. Although the seat cushions are firm, they are comfortable. The back cushions offer great support so one can sit for hours and read or watch tv. It’s also a great couch to take a nap on. I’m 5’7 and can easily stretch out on it. The height is also perfect. Not too low for someone of my height, but not too high either for my some of my shorter friends.

Great for small spaces. If you’re looking for a sofa that will fit a small space but is still feels roomy then consider this one. It doesn’t take much space in my small apartment but it big enough to comfortably sit three people
