How to Get the Most Out of Your Dishwasher


How to Get the Most Out of Your Dishwasher

Lately, President Trump has been hosting political rallies where he rips on the effectiveness of modern day dishwashers to a thunderous applause. What this tells us is that many people are dissatisfied with the performance of their dishwashers, but is it really the appliance’s fault, or are consumers just a couple tweaks to their dishwashing habits away from having a perfectly functional dishwasher? Here are a few suggestions we recommend you follow when you purchase a dishwasher from Happys Appliances Outlet to make sure it cleans your dishes as effectively as possible.

Choosing the Right Detergent

Making sure that you choose an efficient brand of detergent is a major key to improving your dishwasher’s performance. Many brands have eliminated phosphates from their detergents, which is the chemical that was used to remove mineral deposits that get stuck on your dishes. There are still a few different brands out there that are not phosphate-free. Switching to one of those will help to remove those tough mineral deposits on your dishes.

Don’t Over-Fill It

Perhaps the most common mistake people make when using their dishwasher is trying to cram too many dishes into it. We get how this can be tempting, but the spray arm can’t get between your dishes if there’s too many of them stacked up. Many of our dishwashers come with a manual that will show you how they recommend you load the unit.

Choosing the Right Cycle

Many people struggle with selecting the right wash cycle for their dishes. One suggestion we have is to avoid the “express” or “quick wash” option if possible, unless they have already been sanitized and just need a quick rinse. We know it can be a pain to wait around 2 hours for a full dishwasher cycle to complete, but it’s definitely worth it if you want your dishes to be as clean as possible.
