Dishwashers are the dish-washing machines that work with dish racks, dish soap, and dishwasher safe items. While there are some benefits to hand washing dishes, dishwashers offer the best way to clean plates and utensils.
Dishwashers not only save time but also help keep your kitchen counters free of water marks left by dirty dishes. They allow you to conserve water for other uses.Whenever you find any problem with your dishwasher, don’t panic. You can always check online DIY tutorials or hire a professional technician to inspect the issue.
A good dishwasher saves a lot of time for busy parents or homeowners. However, there are still some myths about dishwashers, so we want to talk about them today.
Myth 1: Dishwashers cleans everything
Most dishwashers will leave behind food crumbs. You should always give your dishwasher a quick rinse before you actually load it, otherwise you’ll have to scrape the dishes after the cycle finishes. Professional dishwashing detergents claim that their products can remove 100% of bacteria by using less chemicals but they are just fooling themselves and their customers.
The professional dishwashing detergents are only good for removing grease, dirt and oil stains from plates, but not removing all of the bacteria.
Myth 2: You need to use dishwasher powder or dishwasher liquid every time
You don’t actually have to put any dishwashing detergent in your dishwasher. This is important because you can save a lot by not purchasing it. You won’t do anything that may cause damage to the dishwasher itself as well. Just simply rinse all of your dishes with a clean sponge or cloth under the tap first then just load them into the dishwasher without putting anything inside. If you are using an old dishwasher, there’s nothing wrong with adding some powder but I suggest using less than half of what would be used for whatever brand dishwasher you are using. If it’s dishwasher liquid, use less than half of the recommended amount.
Myth 3: You can dish wash anything
There are a few items that might not be a good candidate for your dishwasher. For instance, fine China, cast iron cookware, silver wear, non-stick Teflon pans, dish racks or dish drying mats. Those items should never be put in the dishwashing machine because they won’t sustain damage from the heat of the water and detergents inside it.
It is essential to know how to use your dishwasher properly. Meanwhile, if you need more professional advice, you can always check with your local appliance repair company.
