One way to improve your daily routine is by expediting certain processes through the use of technology, or in this case, highly attune kitchen appliances. For example, if you are a frequent at-home cook or find yourself tidying up more than the average bear, you might have used your dishwasher to quickly clean up after meals. Hoping to streamline your cleaning routine as a whole? Take it one step further and utilize your dishwasher to clean everyday household items. From baseball caps to faux flowers, here are five items that can efficiently be cleaned in your dishwasher.
If you use a smartphone case made of silicone, rubber, or plastic, you can bet that your case is dishwasher-safe. However, cases with multiple glued-on pieces may come apart in the dishwasher, so use caution. Place the case on its side on the top rack.
Yes, you can wash baseball caps in the dishwasher! First, pre-treat any stains with a stain remover spray beforehand. When loading the dishwasher, you’ll want to place hats on the top rack, so they keep their shape and vivid colors.
Many plastic baby and kids' toys are labeled as dishwasher-safe, such as building blocks. These smaller pieces are often ready to go and come in a mesh bag to prevent them from moving around during a cleaning in the dishwasher.
Vacuum attachments get dirty fast – so why not toss them in the dishwasher? Many vacuum attachments, including brushes and detachable filters, can be cleaned in the dishwasher. If space allows, stand the attachments up in the top rack.
Faux flowers are great for decorating your apartment. They can easily get dusty and dirty, though. So, to easily remove dust from plastic synthetic flowers, lay them horizontally on the top rack before running a regular dishwasher cycle.
