You know enough about what can and should not be washed in the dishwasher. Or you can find it below. It’s time for the unknown features of the dishwasher. Here are practical information that will make your job easier…
USE LAUNDRY NET FOR SMALL ITEMS
Keep small items such as lids from falling off the shelves by using laundry nets.
WASH DISHWASHER SPONGE AND BRUSH ON THE TOP RACK
Hot water and detergent will thus affect them more. In this way, it will be quickly purified from dirt and germs.
WHEN UNLOADING THE DISHWASHER, START FROM THE BOTTOM RACK
Thus, the water accumulating on the upper shelf does not spill over the dried dishes on the lower shelf.
CLEAN POTATOES IN THE DISHWASHER
You can use this method especially if you need to wash a large amount of potatoes at once and want to get rid of dust and dirt on it. All you have to do is run the machine in rinse mode. Of course without adding detergent in it.
MAKE YOUR OWN DETERGENT
In this way, you will be away from the negative effects of chemicals on health and you will get a more economical detergent.
- 1 cup borax
- 1 cup of washing soda
- 10 drops of orange oil
- 5 drops of lemon oil
- 5 drops of rosemary oil
- 2 drops of thyme oil
Mix the mixture you have obtained with 1 liter of water in half a tea glass and wash your dishes.
PLACE FORKS, KNIFE AND SPOONS IRREGULARLY
Because by doing this, you will cause the spoons to intertwine, so the detergent cannot reach them and your spoons will not be cleaned. You can avoid this by placing some of them downwards and some upwards.
MUST PUT THE PLASTICS REVERSE ON THE UPPER SHELF
It is useful to put the dishes, such as plastic storage containers, upside down on the top shelf. Because this is the best way to prevent them from bending or melting under the influence of heat.
However, as unpleasant surprises may arise when plastic and high heat come together, you can of course not take the risk and choose to wash by hand.
CLEAN YOUR SPORTS HAT
If you are complaining that the sports hats you wash in the washing machine are deformed and crooked, you can give your dishwasher a chance.
All you have to do is place the hat on the top rack and run the machine in cold water. But this only applies to sports, fabric hats. Do not wash other hats such as berets this way.
DISINFECT CHILDREN’S TOYS
As long as it is not electric, you can wash the toys by placing them on the top rack of the dishwasher. If it is toys like blocks with only small parts, it is useful to place them in the washing nets in the machine.
CLEAN MAKEUP BRUSHES IN THE DISHWASHER
Oil and bacteria accumulate on makeup brushes that are not cleaned for a long time, and after a while, this causes acne and pimples on your face. The easiest way to clean them and get rid of bacteria is to wash them in the dishwasher. Put the fork in the spoon and start the machine. It’s that simple.
DO NOT PUT WHITE ITEMS SIDE OF SIDE
It is important that two large white goods do not touch each other: For example, the heat coming from a dishwasher adjacent to the refrigerator causes the refrigerator to spend more effort while working. If your kitchen is not very small, it would be beneficial to position the oven, refrigerator and dishwasher far from each other.
RUNNING HOT WATER FROM THE TAP BEFORE OPERATING THE DISHWASHER
If you turn on the faucet and let the water flow so hot to the touch before you start the dishwasher, you will ensure that the water that will fill the machine is hot, not cold. This can be especially useful in the winter months, as you can shorten the heating time of the water.
