Here are a few tips that will help you get the best shine out of your dishes!
The different parts of a dishwasher:
The bottom rack is the hottest part of your dishwasher where the heating system of your appliance is.
This is therefore where you should put the dirtiest and largest, but also the least fragile dishes. Plastic items should not be placed here, as the heat will deform them.
Those of us who are fussier might be tempted to arrange them per type: forks with forks, knives with knives... but this isn't a good idea!
A bit of disorganisation doesn't hurt and will save you from having to wash the cutlery again, which, when grouped together by type, might get stuck together and therefore not cleaned properly.
So make sure you mix your cutlery randomly in the basket. Forks and spoons can be placed with the handles down so that they get washed better. The opposite applies to knives, with the tip facing downwards, to avoid injuries when unloading the dishwasher.
As opposed to the bottom rack, the temperature is lower in the top rack of the dishwasher. This makes it ideal for the most delicate dishes such as glasses and cups, provided they are dishwasher safe.
Make sure they are placed in the correct slots and secured to prevent them from moving around and breaking. Plastic items will certainly appreciate being placed here too!
This is often where you will find racks for kitchen utensils.
The dishwasher is more economical and more environment-friendly than washing by hand, but you still need some common sense to get the most out of your washing!
The wash cycle is over, now it's your turn!
But don't be too hasty, here are a few more tips to make the task easier:
Now you can be sure that your dishes will be clean and shiny!
Some dishwashers adjust their energy and water consumption according to the number of dishes and the degree of soiling!
