How to avoid it In addition to regular maintenance (approximately once every 3 months), it is worth putting a container with a few tablespoons of salt into the dishwasher.

Washing in the dishwasher seems trivial. However, these are just appearances. The correct positioning of dishes in the dishwasher can affect the final result. Load the dishes from the back of the dishwasher. Thanks to this it will be easier for us to arrange them. Let’s also remember that the larger they are, the lower they should be.

Unfortunately, there is a group of things that we still need to wash by hand. Placing them in the dishwasher may cause damage. What’s more, it can break the device itself. This problem group includes, among others plastic containers (unless the manufacturer indicates otherwise), cutlery with wooden elements, crystals, hand-painted dishes, as well as items made of aluminum and those that we do not use in the kitchen, e.g. tools and candlesticks.
