If we are to believe its name, the dishwasher is made for washing dishes! But it is completely possible to use it to clean other things as well. As long as you follow certain guidelines, such as putting small objects into a laundry net, and avoiding raising the temperature, which can be damaging. The upper shelf of the dishwasher is also better for more fragile objects, because the heat is less intense in this area. Finally, anything that is to be eaten should be washed without any detergents or products. This clever tip works very well and allows us to wash objects that are otherwise difficult to clean – or that we never would have thought of putting in the dishwasher! So if you want to know more about the possibilities your dishwasher offers, you’ve come to the right place!
