Ways to Use Your Dishwasher Other Than Cleaning Dirty Dishes

Every day house hold appliances can be deceiving at first glance.

Your dishwasher has so many more uses than just washing, well, dishes. Like sanitizing your toothbrush: Most of us don't do this near enough! It's super important especially after you've been sick.

As farfetched as it sounds, you can also use the dishwasher to shine your hubcaps! Skip the hose next time and opt to stay inside. Cleaning canvas sneakers: remember I said canvas! That means anything similar to Converse are dishwasher safe.

Your dishwasher can be used to cook vegetables and even poach salmon! Foods tightly wrapped in foil can be steamed, but just remember to not add soap.

Ladies, save time buy throwing your plastic makeup brushes in the dishwasher as well. Instead of being stuck in the laundry room, throw your sports gear, and dish sponges and towels in the dishwasher as well. Who needs a whites, colors, AND miscellaneous pile?

Feel free to experiment at your own risk!
