What can be washed in a dishwasher

A dishwasher saves time, water, and money and frees you from unpleasant household chores. Dirty pots and cutlery covered with food residue are a common sight in dishwashers.

It turns out that not only dishes can be successfully washed in them. The Porady Interia publication told us what clothes and items can be safely washed in the dishwasher.

Kitchen utensils

You can wash sponges, kitchen brushes, silicone cooking accessories, and stands for your favorite cups, rags (but not made of microfiber or other functional fabrics), and kitchen gloves in the dishwasher. First, of course, you should familiarize yourself with the manufacturer's recommendations. Experts say that the dishwasher will perfectly clean the microwave plate, the filters of the extractor hood, and even the broom and scoop.

Disinfecting children's toys

Some children's toys can be cleaned in the dishwasher. This method will work especially well with plastic toys. You can place them in a bag and set the wash temperature to a low setting. However, first make sure that they do not have drawings, stickers, or specially colored coatings that can be damaged. It is also important that they are made entirely of the same material. Aluminum inserts will be covered with an unpleasant coating after the dishwasher.

Cleaning interior items

Dusty and dirty lampshades, lids, and other elements of lighting devices, vases (except for rare, fragile and hand-painted ones), document containers, plastic and metal organizers, and tiny bins can also be washed in the dishwasher, according to cleaning experts.

Can I wash my shoes in the dishwasher

Before putting your shoes in the dishwasher basket, you should clean the soles thoroughly. Of course, shoes should not be washed in the same cycle as plates, cups, or cutlery.

The high temperature and detergents used in the dishwasher effectively kill germs accumulated in the shoes, which often cause odors and fungal diseases. However, please note that the shoes in the dishwasher lie motionless all the time, and the drum of the washing machine is constantly rotating, which can lead to damage to the products.
