Things to Remember
1. Never overload the sink or dishwasher. When you do, your dishes will not get as clean as they would
if they had the appropriate amount of space between one another. 2. Don't pre-rinse your dishes before loading. Pre-rinsing does more harm than good. Detergent is made
to attack food particles, and if they are gone, it may cause chips and cracks in your dishes instead. 3. Never use too much detergent. Too much detergent can leave behind residue. 4. Food that goes dry will make cleaning more difficult. Also, wash ceramic ware right after use to avoid
staining that is often caused by coffee, tea and acidic foods. 5. Do not wash your pans or knives in the dishwasher. Knives may become dull and pans may chip and
lose their non-stick coating. Also avoid washing wood, cast iron, crystal or anything hand-painted. 6. Never place sharp objects in the dishwasher with the pointy side facing up. This is a ‘common sense’
practice that ensures you put safety first.
