Almost all of us thought that the dishwasher only serves to wash dishes, pans, cutlery … Anyway, all the kitchenware, but then we are not getting the most out of it since there are countless things that can be scrubbed in the dishwasher. What do you think if today we show you some of the things that can be washed in this appliance that we all have in our kitchen?
We can use it to wash potatoes, toys, disinfect brushes and things that you could never have imagined or did not dare to do.
Things you can put in the dishwasher:
Sponges and kitchen scourers .
Did you know that scourers can contain salmonella and sponges can be full of bacteria? Well it’s true; washing them in the dishwasher usually helps us eliminate them .
Cutting boards, microwave trays and lids , brushes, etc. We can also sterilize them in the dishwasher.
Contact lens box and mouth guards (splints) .
People who use contact lenses have to be very careful with their box, they have to disinfect it assiduously, we will put it in the cutlery tray, without detergent (this is very important), since heat kills germs.
And to have another part of our body totally healthy, the mouth guard (splint) that we use every day can be perfectly washed in the glass tray and in this way it will be perfect for when we use it.
All kinds of tubers or potatoes .
If you have bought potatoes or tubers directly from the producer and they are dirty, I give you this simple solution, which will avoid filling your hands and nails with dirt. We will take the potatoes and put them in the upper tray of the dishwasher, ONLY THE SHORT CYCLE WITHOUT DETERGENT AND WITHOUT DRYING , you already have them ready for use, if you want to save them you just have to wait or put them in a place where they dry; we can also wash this way any fruit or vegetable .
Dishes and toys for your pet .
If you have a pet and you want to disinfect both their toys and their dishes, you can do it in a normal washing cycle, but what if you have to take into account that all of them are suitable for the Dishwasher .
The drawers and shelves of the fridge .
If you really want to have your refrigerator completely shiny and totally free of bacteria , don’t hesitate, put all the drawers that the refrigerator has in the dishwasher and you will have them free of bacteria and totally clean. Easy, right?
The filters of the kitchen extractors .
We can also take advantage of the dishwasher to clean the metal grates or filters of the kitchen extractors, they will come out brilliant. We can also put all the metal utensils that are difficult to wash such as strainers, kitchen burners, gas stove burners, etc. We will put it in the cycle of “pots and pans” and if it does not have it, the one with the highest temperature.
Bathroom utensils .
Inside our bathroom we have many things that accumulate dirt, such as toothbrushes, hair brushes (as long as they are made of hard plastic), soap dishes, etc. If the items are made of thick plastic, they will probably come out of the dishwasher glistening.
But we can also put the headbands, hair clips, etc. With the only condition that they are made of plastic. We put a little white vinegar or a little bleach with the detergent in a short wash cycle and at a low temperature.
Brushes and makeup brushes .
We already told you in a previous post how we could cleaning brushes and makeup brushesWell, today we present another simple and easy way to eliminate all bacteria and epithelial debris (skin); We place them in the cutlery tray or basket and we will wash them normally in the dishwasher, and we will have them ready to use them again.
Sports toys and accessories .
The best way to disinfect all our children’s plastic toys (ALL THAT ARE ELECTRONIC CANNOT BE WASHED) is to put them in a cloth bag and place them in the top tray of the dishwasher and wash them in a normal cycle, the temperature of the water will take care of the bacteria.
We can also put elbow pads, wrist guards, etc. in the dishwasher. that our children use to play sports, as with toys we do not need detergents. We can do the same with the buckets, the shovels and all the pieces that they use to play with the sand, we can even wash the frisbees as well.
Water boots .
Our little ones’ wellies can be put in the dishwasher, removing the ornaments and lining, if they have one. Use a normal wash cycle, but instead of detergent we will put bicarbonate , getting rid of bad odors , we will put them horizontally and wait for the wash cycle to end and for them to dry. Ready for use!
