More and more people are using dishwashers in their households. But there are also a number of complaints, due to which those who do not have this convenience do not dare to get it.
Very often complaints about the washing machine are that it does not wash well. Before you blame it or its manufacturer, make sure you follow all the instructions.
Wash too many dishes before putting them in the dishwasher
You may have heard that it is a good idea to rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Some people overdo it.
In various tests of well-known dishwasher manufacturers, the results were surprising. The best marks were given to the machines in which dishes were placed with the largest food residues removed and which were not thoroughly rinsed.
After all, the job of the dishwasher is to undo you in the wash. If you're going to wash the dishes, what is it for?
The water is not hot enough
The dishwasher performs best with hot water around 60-70 degrees. In this way, all food particles are dissolved, no detergent stains remain and the dishes come out shiny.
Loading some dishes on top of the sink
It is not by chance that the dishes have a specific place in the machine. Sometimes, to save space and time, we push the sink to the top. This accordingly hinders the washing of the dishes, because the water cannot pass freely through its designated places.
You are using liquid or powder detergent
New technologies now offer convenient capsules or tablets on the market with the necessary composition for perfect washing. They clean dishes without leaving detergent and food stains.
The other good thing about the special tablets is that they do not change the enamel and the color of the dishes, which the old aggressive preparations did.
You place the dishes in different directions
It is important that when you stack the dishes in the dishwasher basket, you do so in one direction. Thus, the water will have the opportunity to pass freely together with the dissolved detergent.
You put cups and bowls at the bottom of the basket
This is again a mistake because they obstruct the water. It pours from below to the dish basket, but they stop it. Accordingly, there are unwashed areas on your dishes.
So put the glasses and bowls on the top shelf of the sink where they belong.
Separate utensils by types
It makes sense to separate the spoons, knives and forks into separate slots on the cutlery basket, right? Yes, but that's not a good idea.
Since utensils of the same type have almost the same shape, they stick to each other very easily. You know how two spoons can stick perfectly together. The same goes for knives.
So put all the utensils together. So the chances of something getting stuck on them are smaller.
