Our Top 5 Dishwasher Improvement Tips


There are some people who are fortunate enough to have a handy helper to aid them in their cleaning duties. The dishwasher is indeed a much needed time-saver and while it can be considered a luxury item, you will be able to afford it when you rent from us! Aside from being a handy helper, many of the newer dishwashers use less water per cycle (even less than it takes to hand wash the dishes), making it the better choice when considering water and energy conservation.

So if you have a dishwasher (or are planning on getting one) how can you keep it performing at optimal level throughout its life? Here are our top 5 tips on doing just that:

#1. Scrape or lightly rinse off any food bits that may be stuck to the plate. This will ensure that there is no gunk or residue left on the dishes especially if you run your dishwasher once or twice a day.

#2. Too much dishwasher soap can leave behind a nasty residue and can even etch your glassware.

#3. Do not overload the dishwasher because this will prevent water from the spray arms reaching all the dishes. Additionally, pack your dishes efficiently in the dishwasher so that the water can reach every piece of cutlery or crockery with ease.

#4. Wash the much larger items such as baking trays and large pots and others by hand because these big dishes will prevent water from reaching and cleaning all the dishes.

#5. Clean the inside of your dishwasher. This is extremely important as it ensures that the dishwasher is clean of soap residue and any other dirt that will deter its cleaning ability.


Optimising the operation of a dishwasher can greatly enhance its cleaning cycle and will leave your dishes sparkling and even cleaner than when you first purchased them! Take a look at some of our great energy efficient dishwashers for sale and make the change today!
