How to Wash Dishes in a Dishwasher

A dishwasher makes cleaning dishes after a meal easy, but there a few steps to remember. Read on to find out more about how to wash dishes in a dishwasher.

Dishwashers can make cleaning up after a messy meal easy, but it’s important to use the right technique, products, and dishwasher settings for the utensils that you’re trying to clean. Here’s our essential guide on how to wash dishes in a dishwasher, making it quicker and easier to get your kitchenware clean and hygienic.

 

Get to the basic's first

Step 1:

Pre-rinse or pre-wash the dishes before loading it in the machine. It's essential to clear the extra food wastes from the dishes as the possibility of leaving the food behind is high, even when the process completes.

Step 2:

Arrange the dishes neatly at the bottom of the dishwasher. Since the bottom of the dishwasher has a higher temperature, avoid putting your utensils there. Plastic items that are only labelled ‘dishwasher safe’ should go into the machine. Be careful about the placement of the plastic utensils in the dishwasher. Keep the glasses, bowls, and cups in an incline so the washing solution would reach inside the bowl and clean the stain.

Step 3:

Wood handled or wooden utensils should not be placed in the dishwasher. While the forks, spoons, or knives have to be dropped in the cutlery basket, the trays are to be placed outside on the bottom section of the dishwasher for a smooth cycle.

Step 4:

Don't overload the dishwasher. The water spray will not be able to clean the dishes on the top.

 

Let’s get into the procedure

Step 1:

Make sure spinning arms, rotation device, tubes, and the sprayers work properly in order to avoid further troubles.

Step 2:

Add some powdered soap detergent in the soap container on the dishwasher for the cycle to start.

Step 3:

Turn on the hot water pipe and let the procedure start.
