Handy Tip #1: Getting Your Dishes to Fully Dry
Energy consciousness has entered the kitchen, and some of its effects may call for adjustments in machine use to obtain optimal results. While all dishwashers used to depend entirely on heat to dry the dishes, manufacturers are leaning ‘green’ now, instead. What that means is that beautiful new dishwasher your kitchen sports now may not have a heater included in the design. Evaporation of water droplets is still the goal, but now a drying agent that enhances evaporation rates is automatically added during the final rinse cycle. It’s as simple as filling that little reservoir every few weeks. Read up on your particular manufacturer’s recommendations in your user manual.
Handy Tip #2:
For optimal cleaning in the dishwasher, run the hot water in the sink until it comes out hot before starting your dishwasher. This way the first water going into the unit will be nice and hot. Its the HOT water that does most of the cleaning !
