Dishwasher Loading Tips

Minute-per-minute, using a full dishwasher saves more time and energy than washing dishes by hand. To ensure that you're loading your dishwasher right, here's a couple hints:

  • Put bowls in upside down. This prevents the bowl from filling up with dirty water. Same goes for cups.
  • leave some space between every item. Heat, water, and vapor need to touch every part of a dish in order to properly clean it.
  • Angle everything to ensure water doesn't sit on top of it.
  • Don't stack dishes
  • Put butter knives blade up, but all other knives blade down.
  • Do not put these items in the dishwasher: cast iron, pewter, delicate glassware, tin, sterling silver, china, anodized aluminum, and wood.
  • Only run the dish washer when its full, otherwise the dishes can get overheated and break or melt.
  • Make sure the arms can freely spin
  • Unload the bottom rack first. Moving the top one may cause drips to fall onto dry items
  • Always use the appropriate amount of detergent.
  • Occasionally run an empty cycle with white vinegar (a natural cleaner) to remove water buildup and food particles and kill fungi.
