Different Uses For Your Dishwasher

Posted on

Along with being used to wash your dishes, there are also a lot of other ways you can put your dishwasher to good work. Learn about some of the creative ways you can use your dishwasher in this article.

Wash your baseball caps

You can put your baseball caps in the dishwasher so you can clean them without worrying about them losing their shape, the way they do when you run them through the clothes washing machine. The best place for you to put the cap is on the top rack.

Clean your sports gear

Sports gear, such as knee pads and shin guards can also lose their shape if you run them through the clothes washer. However, you do want to clean them every now and again. Running them through the dishwasher while they are on the top rack will remove that sweaty smell and allow them to maintain their original shape.

Clean your makeup brushes and sponges

Not keeping your makeup brushes and sponges clean can lead to the transference of bacteria and dirt onto your face. This can cause you to get a skin infection, and it can also increase the likeliness of you breaking out. You can clean makeup brushes and sponges in your dishwasher. You want to put them in the silverware basket so they don't fall down into the bottom of the unit.

Clean your light globes

You can remove the globes off your lights and run them through the dishwasher to clean them all at one time. Not only does this allow you to clean a lot of them at once, but it also cleans them without you needing to fit your hand into some small spaces, running the risk of cutting yourself.

Wash potatoes

Washing potatoes can be a time consuming and frustrating process. Putting the potatoes in the top rack of the dishwasher to wash them is a whole lot easier. This will leave you free to take care of everything else you have to do to prepare your dinner.

Disinfect your kitchen sponges and scouring pads

Your kitchen sponges and scouring pads can get full of bacteria and if you don't clean them, then you will be transferring that bacteria to your dishes and countertops. Run the sponges and scouring pads through the dishwasher when you do the dishes to disinfect them.
