Loading the Dishwasher
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     A dishwasher is a great time saver if you have one. It takes a lot less time to load a dishwasher than it does to wash the dishes by hand. But if you load it the wrong way, the dishes won't come clean. You will still have to wash them by hand, which means twice as much work. Here are some tips to get those dishes clean in the dishwasher.
 
2     Some people rinse dishes before they load them in the dishwasher. Others do not rinse them first. Which is better? Depends on whom you ask. One thing you need to do is rinse the large pieces of food off the dishes. Large pieces can clog the dishwasher.
 
3     Glasses and plastic should go on the top rack of the dishwasher. Glasses are more likely to break if you put them on the bottom rack. Plastics should also not go on the bottom rack. The water is hotter down there and the plastic can melt. Sometimes the dishwasher can get really full and you may want to put the glasses or the plastic on the bottom. This isn't a good idea. The glasses are more likely to break if you put them on the bottom.
 
4     Plates, bowls, pots, or anything that needs to be cleaned with a little more power can go on the bottom rack. Sometimes the water pressure is different between the top and bottom racks. That's why the glasses are on the top. You need less pressure to wash a glass. You need more pressure to wash a plate that has dried food on it.
