Unconventional Uses for Your GE Dishwasher

May 05, 2016

The weather is getting nicer and you probably don’t want to spend all your time cleaning.

Skip the spring cleaning and put your household items in your dishwasher; yes, we said the dishwasher. There are a lot of items that you can put in your dishwasher, that aren’t dishes. Check out our list of household items, beauty tools, toys and more that you can safely wash in your GE dishwasher.

Remember to keep your GE dishwasher regularly maintenanced and repaired with all the extra work it’ll be doing. If you need a repair for your GE dishwasher, give Repair Care a call. We service Calgary and the surrounding areas.

Other Items You Can Wash in Your Dishwasher

Household Items: There are tons of household items that you can clean in your dishwasher. These include garden tools, vent covers, shower heads, barbeque and oven grills, garbage bin lids, lightswitch plates, refrigerator shelves, scrubbing brushes and even dishcloths.

Instead of spending time scrubbing your household items by hand, put them in your dishwasher for a cycle and they’ll come out cleaner. Plus, you won’t spend hours bent over the sink cleaning them by hand.  

Plastic Kids and Dog Toys: Your kids probably aren’t gentle with their toys. Instead of washing dirty plastic toys by hand, place them in with your dishes, or if you have enough toys to clean put them in their own cycle. The dishwasher will not only wash away grime and make them squeaky clean, but it will also kill bacteria that can be transferred back to your kids. You can also put your dog’s toys or food dishes in to clean off the dirt and slobber.

Brushes: Ladies are you sick of of cleaning your makeup brushes by hand? Stick them in the utensil holder with your dishes instead. They’ll come out much cleaner and you don’t have to spend money on expensive brush cleansers. You can also do this with paint brushes, hairbrushes, and combs.

Shoes: You probably never thought that you could wash your shoes in your dishwasher; but surprise, you can! Rubber or plastic shoes, such as rain boots and flip flops, can safely be washed in your dishwasher. Make sure if your rain boots have fabric insoles your remove them first, and we recommend putting your shoes in seperate from your dishes.  

Contact Case: Stick your grimey contact case in the utensil holder once a month to keep it clean and bacteria free.

Other materials: You can also put in your sponges, mop heads, baseballs caps, shower loofahs, and hair ties in your dishwasher so that they don’t get wrecked in the tumble of the washing machine.

Other grooming tools: You can also put your tweezers, razors, toothbrush, toothbrush holders, soap holders, mouth guards and nail clippers in for a quick and efficient clean as well!
