What’s your number-one dishwasher tip?

Put in all silverware face up, but knives in face down, to avoid stabbing yourself! (Has anyone else perfected the “silverware drop” to avoid getting dirty hands?)

—Devorah Cohen

Try to remember to wash your hands after touching the dishwasher tablets because they’re full of chemicals. Also make sure the blades spin before closing your dishwasher. If they didn’t spin, they won’t clean!

—Chanie Nayman

Pre-rinse every item before loading to alleviate a buildup of gunk and eventual terrible smell.

—Rivky Kleiman

I add a squirt of lemon juice every once in a while to keep the glassware shiny and smelling good.

If you’re having trouble getting your dishes clean, try switching to pods. I find they work better than the liquid or powder detergent.
