Written by on

When it comes to home appliances, their main purpose is to make our lives that little bit easier. This is particularly true when it comes to your dishwasher.

Saving you time and energy, it makes sure that your dishes are sparkling and clean. Without you having to even go near a sponge.

There are a variety of different dishwashers available that you can choose from. Once you have a dishwasher in your home then this is definitely something that you won’t regret investing in. So, how do you make sure that your dishwasher is working the best it can? Here is our guide to dishwashers and how to load them.

Pick a good dishwasher

The first thing to do is decide on which dishwasher that you want for your home. With so many to choose from it can be tricky to decide what is right for you. Some are slimline that will fit in with ease into your kitchen, some are full size which are designed for those with big families. There are also lots of brands that make dishwashers for your home, this includes Hoover.

As well as quality tablets

Without dishwasher tablets, your plates, pots and cutlery are never going to get clean. So, this means, before you switch on the dishwasher you need to pop a tablet in there. Much like dishwashers themselves, these come from a range of different brands. One of the most popular has to be Fairy Platinum, which is proven to leave everything in your dishwasher squeaky clean.

Get loading

You might not think it is the case, but there really is an art to loading your dishwasher. Some people decide to rinse off their plates and pots before they pop them in the dishwasher. But, if you have a newer or more powerful dishwasher, then this isn’t necessary.

Dishwashers can run with only one or two plates in there, but if you want to make sure that it is energy efficient then it is always a good idea to only run the dishwasher when it is full.

Loading is a bit of an artform, it is a good idea to start on the bottom rack, keeping the taller items close to the sides. This is so they don’t block the hot water getting to other items in the dishwasher. The bottom rack should usually be the place that you pop the pots and pans, dinner plates and bowls.

Once you have the bottom rack loaded then you need to focus on the top. This is where you will pop the glasses and mugs as well as any rogue bowls that might not fit in the bottom. Any plastic food storage containers need to be placed away from any heating elements as this can melt them, this means that they are best placed in the top rack.

It really is as simple as that. By loading your dishwasher properly, you will find that not only does everything come out clean, but your dishwasher will run efficiently too.
