Have you ever found yourself re-stacking the dishwasher after someone in the family hasn’t done it your satisfaction? Well don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s a scene played out in many households.

The good news is you’re not just being fussy for no good reason. Years of research by the experts at Finish has proven the way you stack your dishwasher can make a difference to how clean your crockery, cutlery and cookware come out at the end.

While there’s no need to pre-rinse, scraping off any food particles will improve your results. The quick dissolving Power Gel in Finish Quantum Max Shine & Protect will wash away the residue for an amazing shine. The pre-soaking Powerball penetrates, breaks down and lifts away even 24-hour dried food. The Advanced powder with bleach seeks out and cleans tough stains.

When it comes to silverware it’s best to avoid ‘nesting’ so the water and detergent can swirl across all surfaces. To avoid injury, knives and forks should face down and try not to let your spoons ‘spoon’ for a better clean. The same goes with plates and bowls, if they are stacked too close together there is a chance they won’t clean as well. Use the racks as intended and separate all items as you’re stacking your machine.

The most soiled items should go to the bottom of the machine; plates, bowls, pots and pans to ensure they get good water flow. Cups, glasses and plastic-ware are best placed at the top of the machine. Ensure they are always placed upside down and on an angle so the water drains away from them quickly and easily.
