The Dishwasher

by Kiku Reidhead

The dishwasher is a powerful cleaning tool that's good for not only dishes and silverware but many household items as well! Make the most of your appliance by learning what it can be good for; learning to expand the possibilities for your dishwasher will save you time and extra cleaning.

1. Baseball caps: These don't do well in the washing machine because the bills get bent and battered. So, the dishwasher is a perfect solution. Place a cap on the top rack and give the sweat marks and dust a good washing without beating up your hat.

2. Toys: If you have kids, or even nieces and nephews, you know that toys can get germy and dirty. Once again, the dishwasher is a high-powered machine to get rid of bacteria and give old toys and new sparkle.

3. Sports equipment: Knee pads, shin guards, and other sports equipment are tough to give a good wash without misshaping them in the washing machine. The dishwasher will help with these items - just remember to empty all the dishes before you wash the sports equipment.

4. Washing fruits or veggies: If you have any dirty and tough-to-scrub veggies (like potatoes) you can actually just run them in the dishwasher. Just remember not to add any detergent.

5. Disinfecting sponges or rags: You can actually put dish sponges or rags in the dishwasher in between your dishes to disinfect and clean them. This is a quick and easy way to keep sponges ready for scrubbing.
