5 Things We Bet You Didn’t Know Your Dishwasher Could Do!

It’s not just there for washing your dishes, despite the name. It can do these 5 things as well!

It can steam food. Most dishwashers go upto 70-75C so as long as you are wrapping your food in foil and a waterproof bag, it will steam just as well as any other method. If there’s room to do this with some dishes inside then you are saving energy as well! Particularly good for fish.

It can clean brushes. Hair brushes, makeup brushes, combs, the lot. They can all benefit from a turn in the dishwasher and saved yourself some time at the sink.

It can warm plates. Some appliances actually have a plate warming setting but if yours doesn’t, remember that a high cycle will warm the plates up just as well as an oven.

It can wash food. Potatoes and veg are perfect for popping in a detergent free cycle while you get on with preparing the rest of the meal, or just not washing the veg.

It can wash so much more. Not all, but anything that is plastic like flip flops or willies can be used although not with your plates…Additionally children’s toys, dishcloths, scrubbing brushes, showerheads, bin lids and garden tools can all be cleaned. Pretty good for something that you thought could only do the dishes!
