We all know washing dishes can be a pain...
Here's a tip you may want to know!
You shouldn't rinse the plate and then put it in the dishwasher.
A recent article pointed out that you aren't supposed to pre-rinse your dishes before putting them in the machine.
Not even a little bit!
It's more beneficial to NOT wash them before putting them in the machine.
Most modern dishwashers have sensors inside of them to figure how long to run a cycle and even if you were to press normal, the length and temperature of the cycle can vary depending on how dirty the dishes seem to be.
So if you don't rise... the machine will recognize that there is food present and run it through a more thorough cleaning cycle!
