When it comes to using your dishwasher, you will want to take a look at these 27 things you can clean in your dishwasher. These household cleaning tips will change the way you look at your kitchen dishwasher. There are quite a few things you can wash in your dishwasher besides dishes, pots, and pans. Your dishwasher can help with all sorts of house cleaning tips around the house saving you time and getting the things you use the most spotless and clean. The dishwasher will help you combine some of your regular cleaning jobs with your daily dishwashing, saving you time and saving you money on your water and electricity or gas bill. The dishwasher is also a useful appliance that can give a thorough cleaning to some of the dirty items around the house that might defy your elbow grease.

It is important once you look at the list not to wash all of the suggested items alongside your dishes or pots and pans. You will want to read the useful house cleaning tips and tricks on each item to see how the job should be done, and which ones need a separate load. You will also want to keep in mind that a separate load means that you are using more water and more electricity or gas than you normally would. Of course, sometimes even if a household cleaning tip is going to use some extra water and electricity, it’s still worth it to get things clean (and many of those items that need cleaning are not things you would wash more than once or twice a year).

One of the house cleaning tips you will find on the list includes Ziploc bags. Using the dishwasher to clean your Ziploc bags is a good way to give them a good cleaning, and a good way to reuse something that would otherwise be thrown away after one use. You will want to make sure you spread the bag open on some prongs, so the water gets down in it completely. Another of the household cleaning tips on the list is pet dishes.

It’s recommended by vets to run pet bowls and dishes through a dishwasher at least occasionally, to prevent them from growing bacteria which can make pets sick. You can do this alongside your regular dishes unless you have a baby and a family member with immune system problems, in which you would want to run them separately on the sanitizing cycle. You can also clean household items such as toothbrushes and toothbrush holders, soap dishes, other bathroom items. You can also add personal care items that get gunky or filmy over time by simply running them through a normal cycle on the top rack, along with your other dishes on a regular dishwashing.
