Dishwashers make washing up a lot easier; you don’t just turn on the machine and get a good batch of clean dishes. There are a few tips and ideas you can use to make sure you get much cleaner dishes and sparkling glasses from every dishwasher leas.
If you have very sturdy stains make sure you soak or rinse them in water before you put them in the dishwasher. Chip away at eh stubborn stains and they will come out cleaner at eh end of the wash. Not doing this can damage your dishwasher as they can block the drainage pipes and your plumbing may need work doing to it.
Make sure you don’t put fragile plastics in the dishwasher if these fall onto the heating they can catch fire or melt inside and totally ruin your dishwasher – make sure you are safe, it sounds weird but dishwasher fires are reasonably common in the household according to fire-fighters
Don’t overload your dishwasher – if you pace items onto of each other the waster cannot flow and spread over all of your dishes well and then get you a good coverage and cleaning of your crockery. Just do two separate loads and you will get much better results.
Load from the bottom up and make sure you have the smaller items on the bottom and the glass wear on the top. This means the water from your dishwasher can spray around with ease and makes sure that you get a great clean load of dishes at the end.
Secure your cutlery – if they fall and make contact with the rotating arm of the dishwasher you can expect to have a broken dishwasher and have to get a new dishwasher with a large dishwasher installation cost.
Rotating the direction of knives and forks in your dishwasher can ensure that they are not stuck together and that they can then get a really good clean – if you don’t do this you may find some clean items and some dirty – not something that you want a guest for a dinner party to see!
If you follow the above steps your dishwasher will give you much better results and you will get a cleaner load of dishes and glasses every time. Make sure you look after your dishwasher as they do frequently break down. You can get maintenance by a plumber or dishwasher technician quite cheap nowadays so take a look around and you should be getting super clean dishes every time for years to come.
Something else to consider is that there are dishwasher cleaning tablets that you can purchase from any good supermarket – these are used in your dishwasher where you would usually put your soap. You then run the dishwasher with the cleaning tablet inside (make sure you don’t put any dishes in while you do this!) and you will make your dishwasher clean and fresh – giving you very clean dishes, for much longer - meaning you don’t have to manually do the washing up anymore!
