How To Load A Dishwasher, Part 2.

The most important thing to remember when loading a dishwasher is that for the cleaning cycle of the dishwasher to be successful you need the dishwater to be able to circulate around the entire item.

Overcrowding is one of the most common problems when it comes to dirty dishes and unsatisfactory results.

Some people try and save money on soap; this is not an area where you should cut back.

Always use the manufacturer’s recommended amount.

What you need to determine is what is the best soap for your dishwasher and for the type of water in your area.

Liquid and powder react differently based on the type of water.

The cutlery tray

Always put cutlery in the tray pointing up. This allows for maximum water circulation. Also it is important to mix up the cutlery.

NOTE: Sharp knives should always be pointed downwards for safety.
