Appliance Tip of the Day: Properly Loading a Dishwasher

Oh, I know what you’re saying, you’re saying, “Yo, Samurai, how stupid do you think we are that you think you gotta tell us how to load our friggin’ dishwasher?” Ahh, Grasshopper, did you know that improperly loading your dishwasher is one of the most common causes for having food and spit and slime left on your dishes after you’ve run ’em through? Yup, here’re seven simple dishwasher loading tips that’ll hepya get the gookus off your dishes:

  1. Load all your dirty dishes so that they’re separated and facing the center.
  2. If you place a large bowl or pan over the center of the lower rack, you’re gonna block the washing and spraying action of the center spray tower. Now how’re all them other dishes gonna get clean, genius?
  3. Similarly, don’t place larger items in front of smaller items ‘cuz they’ll sheild the smaller items from the cleansing spraying action.
  4. Bowls shouldn’t be nested together for the same reason.
  5. Spoons and other silverware should be loaded with some handles up and some handles down to prevent nesting. Y’see, Slick, it’s all about the spray. Think the spray. BE the spray.
  6. Don’t load anything that could block the spray arm. Now, you’d think I wouldn’t need to say that, wouldn’t you?
  7. Also, when loading large items, pay attention to where the detergent dispenser is and make sure it’s not gonna keep the dispenser door from opening.

Awwite, go wash you some dishes!
