You mean the dishwasher won't kill the chlamydia I spill on my keyboard? Uh-oh.

You just have to let the dog lick 'em clean before you put them in there.

Also, don't use regular dishsoap in a dishwasher. You'll get a huge suds overflow that is a pain to clean up.

Dumbass?  Why?  They thought it was industry standard.  It's not like they were throwing that stuff in with the office coffee mugs.  Although the visual is sort of hilarious.

And they were fined a thousand bucks apiece.  Not exactly much of a punitive measure.

Honey, why does the dishwasher smell like a sorority house?

Seriously, I did that in my first encounter with a dishwasher, at age 22.  The gf I'd just moved in with was bemused.

/then the slut started sleeping with her boss, so I did it again and left.

I did the same thing about 10 years younger.  My step mom was not initially amused or bemused.  She laughed about it a couple weeks later.

It was actually my wife who did it. It took me about 30 minutes to get all the suds rinsed out of the dishwasher.

Then she did it again a few months later.

I think she was trying to prove a point...That I should be the one doing the dishes.

It  was a comedy of cluelessness.  I'd just moved to Houston and in with her.  Called her at work asking where the dishwashing soap was.  She told me, "Under the sink.  Fill the cup, close it, shut the door and turn it on."  Liquid soap was in front of  the box of powder.  I grabbed it and followed orders.

Was busy unpacking when I heard the gurgling sounds.  Kitchen was knee-deep in foam.  Floor was spotless when she got home, though.

LOL.  At least I have an excuse--I was 12 or 13, and it was the first time I ran the dish washer on my own.  Looked under the sink, saw a bottle of dish washing soap, didn't give it a second thought.

And rather than farking up the machine, I like to think of it as getting the dishes and the floor clean at the same time.

A friend of mine just bought a $1000 Bosch dishwasher that has a "sterilize" setting to up the temp to kill bacteria. Obviously, what qualifies as "dishwasher safe" changes at that point.
 
2013-04-05 10:05:02 PM  
Seriously, they sell toys made from Pyrex and that are labeled as dishwasher safe. So what's the problem?
 
2013-04-05 10:08:31 PM  
Provided they were also sterilizing the instruments and inspecting for water spots, I don't see the problem.

I used to use the dishwasher exclusively for sanitizing the cat box. You didn't rent the apartment after I moved out, did you?

And if you use laundry detergent, you'll get the cleanest dishes you'll ever seen ever.

Once, I did what you suggested, only with the washing machine itself. Oh lawd how hilarious was that. There was so many suds that when the washer went into the spin cycle it started to slide across the floor because the machine was sitting on a sheen of popped bubbles that had been erupting from every nook and cranny the machine had. Man being 18 was  fun.

First you wash 'em in the dishwasher, then you sterilize 'em in a bowl of 100 proof bourbon. Which you drink afterward: waste is sinful.

At one of my previous jobs we'd use a dishwasher to clean keyboards. Worked quite well.

Most things that are labeled dishwasher safe are also microwave safe, so they should be able to withstand heat of at least as high as boiling water, most sterilization cycles only run at about 200degrees Fahrenheit, a bit under boiling.

The problem is you are trusting the removal of possible STDs to a device that regularly leaves specs of food on plates.

Oh, fark, I've been putting them in a bowl of bourbon and THEN washing them. No WONDER my bourbon had a copperish taste.

I absolutely do not prewash dishes.  If my dishwasher didn't get them clean, I'd know it was time to get a new dishwasher.

I don't understand people who prewash.

I'm sure those instruments were probably sterile enough that nobody was at risk of anything.

But goddamn, I've known you sterilize medical shiat in an autoclave since before I could drive...

"pre wash" is what people with garbage disposals in their sinks call "scraping the leftovers off the plate."
