Us­ing It

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Home & Food Housebook -

Do I need to rinse the dishes rst? No, just scrape off large pieces of food so that the ma­chine doesn’t get choked. How long is a wash cy­cle? It’s 6090min on a reg­u­lar cy­cle, with half-load or quick-wash op­tions that take 30-40min to clean not-so-dirty dishes. Can I use reg­u­lar dish­wash­ing liq­uid in a dish­washer? No. You’ll need a dish­washer tablet or liq­uid, sold in su­per­mar­kets. What kinds of table­ware are not dish­washer-friendly? The hot wa­ter and air may cause wooden bowls to crack over time, and could dam­age lac­quer­ware and glossy paint. Can I wash baby bot­tles and chop­ping boards in a dish­washer? Yes, the tem­per­a­ture can go up to a bac­te­ria-bust­ing 75 deg C in a reg­u­lar cy­cle. Can I ac­cu­mu­late my used dishes through­out the day and wash them all to­gether? Yes, you can first run each batch through a rinse-only cy­cle, then leave it in the dish­washer un­til you’ve filled it up. Or, you can wash each batch of dishes on a half-load pro­gramme, which uses less wa­ter than a reg­u­lar cy­cle. Does a dish­washer need reg­u­lar main­te­nance? You only need to clear food from the fil­ter (usu­ally lo­cated at the base) daily, to pre­vent chokes.
