I don’t enjoy doing dishes but I really hate when I find that my dishes didn’t get cleaned by the dishwasher.We have a very old dishwasher which means I often find dishes that didn’t get properly cleaned. But I’ve learned a few tricks that help even the oldest dishwasher get dishes clean with little effort.

Here are a few of my pro-dishwashing tips to prevent the need to re-wash dishes that have been through the dishwasher.

1. Scrape large food pieces off dishes before loading. Even the best dishwasher and detergent can’t get rid of half a hamburger.

2. Make sure forks and spoons don’t nest. Place some with handles up and other with the handle down to prevent stacking.


3. Load plates and bowls so the dirty side faces the water spray.


4. Place baking sheets and large pans along the side or back but never in front by the door – this prevents the detergent from reaching the dishes.


5. Don’t use too much detergent. More detergent won’t clean your dishes any better but will leave soap residue on your dishes.

Bonus Tip: Sort silverware as you load to make unloading quicker.


I use Finish Quantum dishwasher detergent to get my dishes sparkling clean. If you combine these helpful tips with a great detergent like Finish you don’t have to worry about re-washing your dishes… ever.
