Home Hacks: 9 Surprising Ways You Can Use Your Dishwasher

Apparently, the appliance can cook!

Cooking isn’t particularly my strong suit. That’s why I’m usually more than happy to let my wife do her thing in the kitchen. She’s a pretty decent cook and comes up with good stuff so I really wouldn’t want to ruin that.

As for me, I often take charge of the dishes and utensils, making sure that they are as squeaky clean as possible and ready to use for the next meal time.

Thanks to modern technology, the manual task of physically washing unclean dishes has become much easier. All you have to do is to load the plates, bowls, cups, and everything else on the appliance, and then wait for a few minutes.

Perhaps unknown to some, the dishwasher is actually not limited to its main function. The appliance can do more than keep your kitchenware clean.

Apparently, dishwashers can be used even for cooking.

Yes, you read that right. You can use the appliance for cooking – and for many other purposes.

I’m a big fan of Post-it notes. I am usually a forgetful person and so these little sticky notes are extremely helpful for me in remembering important things.
