How does the foil cleaning method work?

The cleaning method works so efficiently because of a chemical reaction between the aluminum foil and the dishwasher tablet, which breaks down all the dirt.

According to Australian property maintenance company Fantastic Services, foil has no cleaning properties, but the aluminum works well on shiny kitchenware and even oven racks.

Her video has since been viewed more than 23,000 times, with many saying they were blown away with the simple and easy trick.

Some were still confused about how the cleaning method works, but one woman explained that boiling baking soda with foil helps to clean tarnished silverware.

“Why it might work… a lot of soaps contain baking soda and most dishwashers run at very high temperatures,” she said.

The trick comes just weeks after one mom revealed the secret to getting perfectly dry dishes out of the dishwasher was to put a clean kitchen towel on the door.

Post to her ‘The Organized Housewife’ account, she explained that she does this after the cleaning cycle is complete to absorb the moisture.

“Great tip for removing moisture from your dishwasher,” she said.
