Even though loading your dishwasher seems like a no-brainer job, there are a few things you can do to to maximize your dishwashing potential:

1. For the utensil tray, switch from upside down to right side up every time you insert a utensil to prevent them from sticking together.

2. Place large concave objects facing inwards, so that the inside will be able to maximize the flow and force of the jet spray.

3. Make sure any cups, bowls, or lids are facing downwards so they cannot collect water.

4. Make sure not to let wine glasses touch rinse aid, because this will prevent “legs” from forming in your wine glass.
