Few people realize that a dishwasher can also successfully clean everyday items besides dishes and cutlery. Which ones specifically? These ideas could change the way you use this appliance forever.

The dishwasher has many more uses than one might think. Cleaning various household items can be time-consuming and difficult. So, if you're tired of hand-washing everything except dishes, this information will surely make you happy – the dishwasher is more versatile than you think.

What else can you wash in the dishwasher?

Pet owners often struggle to keep their pets' bowls clean. Instead of laboriously hand-washing them, simply rinse them under running water and place them in the dishwasher. You'll also find it just as easy to clean bathroom cups, which are often covered in residues and stains—the proper dishwasher cycle will make them perfectly clean.

You can also wash... baseball caps in the dishwasher. Try it, and the result will be fantastic! The washing machine is not always the best solution, nor is hand washing. The dishwasher will clean and disinfect them thoroughly and won't damage the material. Plastic children's building blocks can also be safely washed in the dishwasher – place them in a lingerie bag. Makeup brushes, which gather bacteria, can also be washed in the dishwasher – this is a great way to save time and energy.

What else can the dishwasher clean?

Refrigerator shelves are another item that can be successfully cleaned in the dishwasher. Just remove them, let them reach room temperature, and then place them in the dishwasher. They will be shiny and free of bacteria and mould spores.
