As we try to savour the last good days in the garden, we need to find shortcuts for getting the indoor chores out of the way. You may be surprised to learn how many different things you can accomplish with the aid if your dishwasher, thus cutting down the time you spend mulling about inside, and getting you out into the sun and fresh air quicker.
In some cases you might need to call upon a contraption or two to help you in your modified use of the dishwasher, but in others it is all about just putting things right in it. If you are looking to wash your baseball caps, then a do hicky called a ball cap washer will keep it from losing its shape in the dishwasher. Take note, they should not be washed at the same time as food waste, as that could stain the fabric.
Small toys can also go for a spin in the dishwasher, but should be put into a lingerie bag first. Stick to items like action figures, balls, and items that are not so tiny as to slip through the bag. While you are at it, you can put big boy and girl toys in to, meaning tools. However, you must be certain that they are completely dry or they could rust.
