Things You Can Clean and Cook in the Dishwasher

Only 4 in 10 UK households have a dishwasher – compared 7 in 10 in Germany and 6 in 10 in France. Did you a dishwasher does not just wash the dishes?

Things You Can Clean and Cook in the Dishwasher

Dishwashers are great for cleaning dishes – as you would expect – but they can also clean more unusual things.

Computer Keyboards

Computer keyboards have more bacteria than your toilet seat. Putting your keyboard in the dishwasher on a rinse only cycle will clean it up like new. Beware, some say it can damage the electronics inside – and you must let it dry out completely before plugging it in.

Nail Clippers and Tweezers

Nail clippers, tweezers, razors (not electric ones!), plastic combs and hairbrushes can be cleaned and sanitised with a dishwasher.


Wellies, flip flops and sandals made of rubber or can be cleaned in the dishwasher.


Save time and water by putting veg in the dishwasher and running a rinse cycle.


A dishwasher reaches temperatures of up to 75°C s it isn’t just for washing things – you could cook in it too. The high temperature can slow cook or steam food.

Soft-Boiled Eggs

Pop eggs into an air-tight jar along with some water, close the lid tightly, and place it in the dishwasher. They’ll boil perfectly as you wash the dishes!


It is possible to prove your bagel dough in the dishwasher by simply leaving it inside for 10-15 minutes after running a high-temperature cycle – the retained warmth and humidity will speed up the process. Just make sure that the cycle has completely finished before you put dough inside, or else you will end up with some very wet dough!

Are you serious?

Okay, there is a little more to it – dishwashers can indeed cook and clean but the real reason they are so popular is because they save time, energy, water and therefore money!
