One of my favorite parts of welcoming spring is the fact that I can give my home a deep clean. I love nothing more than feeling a warm breeze flow through my home while I clean dust from ceilings, wash windows, and scrub pretty much every corner of my home. Of course having the right products from brands like Lysol, Air Wick®, and Finish on hand helps me to achieve my mission of a fresh and sparkling home.
My family’s spring cleaning mission is not a task that is done in just one or two days. I like to tackle certain rooms, and corners and take my time to make sure it gets done right. With each season, I also like to sanitize plastic kids toys, baseball caps, and other weird things you can wash in the dishwasher. Yes, that it right, I add some strange things to my dishwasher to get them clean and refreshed.
About a year ago, we got new stainless steel appliances and really started to pay attention to brand we used for cleaning. One brand that I became particularly fond of is the Finish brand of dish washing products. I find them to be the perfect fit for my dishwasher because they get even the toughest messes this food blogger can make out!
I recently headed to Target to pick up some Finish Quantum Max tablets, and other supplies that I was running low on for the new cleaning season. You can save 5% off all Finish Products. (Running 3/27-5/14) when you add the offer to your Target Cartwheel.
Lysol Disfencting Spray was top on my list because my current can was just about out from being in high demand during the germy winter. I love that it kills 99% of viruses and bacteria. Plus, there are many scents to choose from too to meet all preferences. Right now, you can save 10% off all Lysol Cleaning Products. (Running 3/27-5/14) when you add the offer to your Target Cartwheel. I also wanted some fresh spring scents for my Air Wick® Scented Oil Warmer units. I just love that they can freshen any room I choose in a decorative manner thanks to the new warmer designs with 8x more fragrance control. You can save 5% off all Air Wick Products. (Running 3/27-5/14) when you add this offer to your Target Cartwheel.
So I am sure you all are sort of intrigued by some of the things your dish washer can clean. I figured I’d share my top Weird Things You Can Wash in the Dishwasher for a hassle free clean! **I do not recommend running the heat drying cycle though for all of these things. Some items could be potentially damaged, use caution.
Cutting Boards: I always love to add these in because they harbor bacteria really quickly!
Plastic Kids Toys: I add solid plastic kids toys to the top rack to get them clean. This was especially helpful when my kids were babies. Of course you want to make sure they are sturdy plastic and skip on the heat to prevent melting.
Canning Supplies: I love washing my mason jars and lids in the dishwasher on sanitize mode. Of course you can also run the complete cycle on these since they are glass so cut your canning work in half!
Toothbrushes: Ever get sick right after youve changed your toothbrush? It has happened to me way too many times! Instead of throwing away your new brush, consider washing it in the dishwasher. Just add them to the silverware trays!
Hairbrushes and Combs: Combs and brushes can get loaded with hair product buildup. By adding them to the silverware trays you can get them as good as new! Just make sure all the hair is removed prior to washing.
Flip Flops: We all know rubber flip flops can get pretty grimy! Consider washing your’s in the dishwasher. Of course I do not recommend you dry them on heat mode, but the washing mode should get them as good as new!
These sure are some weird things you can add to your dish washer, but by doing so, you can spring clean and sanitize in a pinch!
