What things you can safely wash in the dishwasher: unexpected options
A dishwasher saves time, water and money, and relieves you of unpleasant household chores. Dirty pots and cutlery covered in food residue are commonplace with dishwashers.
It turns out that not only dishes can be successfully washed in them. Porady Interia told us what clothes and items can be safely washed in the dishwasher.
Sponges, kitchen brushes, silicone cooking accessories and coasters for your favorite cups, rags (just not with microfiber and other functional fabrics), and kitchen gloves can be washed in the dishwasher. First, of course, you should read the manufacturer's recommendations. Experts say that the dishwasher will perfectly clean both the microwave plate, and the filters of the hood, and even the broom and dustpan.
Disinfecting children's toys
Some children's toys made of plastic can be washed in the dishwasher. You just need to place them in a bag and set a low wash temperature. However, first make sure that they do not have any drawings, stickers or specially colored coatings on them that can be damaged. It is also important that they are made entirely of the same material. Aluminum inserts will be covered in unpleasant deposits after the dishwasher.
Cleaning of interior items
Dusty and dirty lampshades, covers and other elements of lighting fixtures, vases (except for rare, fragile and hand-painted), document containers, plastic and metal organizers, small waste baskets can also be washed in the dishwasher, experts assure.
Can shoes be washed in the dishwasher
The soles of your shoes should be thoroughly cleaned before putting them in the dishwasher basket. Naturally, shoes should not be washed in the same cycle as plates, cups or cutlery.
The high temperature and detergents used in the dishwasher effectively destroy the microbes accumulated in the shoes, because it is they who often cause bad odor and fungal diseases. However, please note that the shoes in the dishwasher lie stationary all the time, while the drum of the washing machine is constantly rotating, which can cause damage to the products.
