Does the dishwasher create disagreements in your home like it does mine?
I'm really not too sure why this machine that was made to make life easier creates so many arguments. My better half, who I love dearly, likes for things to be packed/put up in a strategic way (packing the car included). Supposedly I don't rinse everything properly and don't put the dishes in the dishwasher the way they should be. I didn't know that there was a right or wrong way. Anyway, this past weekend I picked up the latest issue of Real Simple and found out some interesting things about the dishwasher. If you've already read it, I apologize.
A few tricks to loading:
- spoons and forks should be varied (some placed up and some placed down) - I was glad to read this!
- plates should face the center rather than all in one direction
- bowls go on the top rack
Things you can actually put in the dishwasher:
- garden tools
- hairbrushes - not sure that I would
- potatoes (rinse cycle only)
- small toys
- baseball caps
Do you put anything out of the ordinary in the dishwasher? I'd love to know!
