Finally, we can simply put in the dirty dishes and after the rinse program, it comes from flashback again.
Think yourcan only clean dirty dishes? Think again! From toys to keys and make-up brushes, these clever appliances can clean a lot more than just cups, bowls and plates.
'For certain items that you may struggle to clean, or haven't cleaned enough, your dishwasher could offer the perfect solution,' says Deyan Dimitrov, laundry expert and the CEO of.
Wondering what else you can put inside? Take a look at the surprising items below...
Listening to a loved one can help them live longer, says new study
A listening ear can make a huge differenceAccording to a new study published in the journal Jama Network Open, listening to someone who is venting can help them build cognitive resilience — the ability to overcome negative effects or stress. While it may not come naturally to everyone, active listening is an invaluable communication skill that can help fuel the brain.
your keys with soap and water will help wash away most germs, but for an extra shiny finish, Deyan recommends popping them in the dishwasher to effectively remove greasy fingerprints, stains and dust.
'As they travel with you throughout the day, your house and car keys can accumulate a lot of dirt and grime, which is why I would recommend cleaning them every 1-2 weeks,' says Deyan.
'Place them in the silverware compartment of your dishwasher and begin your usual hot cycle of washing with a dishwasher tab or soap — the hot temperature will kill off any unwanted bacteria and rid your keys of any dirt or stickiness.'
2. Garden tools
Are you wondering how to clean yourtools? According to Deyan, items such as trowels, mini rakes and spades can all be placed in the dishwasher to remove difficult stains. Make sure to rinse off any dried mud first to avoid clogging up your filter.

Yes, they are real
'If your tools' handles are protected with a rubber, plastic or even ceramic casing, these will all be dishwasher safe,' adds Deyan. 'If they'll fit, again pop them into your silverware compartment with your usual washing accompaniment, and they'll come out sparkling.'
3. Flip-flops and Crocs
Rubber shoes, such as flip-flops and Crocs, can go safely in the dishwasher. While a regular wipe-down will keep your shoes clean, a dishwasher can help kill harmful bacteria and germs.
Simply put your shoes onto the top rack, adding a capful of one part baking soda and two parts vinegar to banish unwanted smells. Don't forget to run a cold cycle and air dry them afterwards to avoid any shrinkages.
4. Sports gear
Wash away any debris on your plastic sports gear by placing them in the dishwasher for a quick wash.
'If you or your children have had an active summer and tried out any new sports, then you'll know just how sweaty any protective gear can get,' says Deyan.
Antibiotics may raise colon cancer risk, massive study suggests
This is the largest epidemiological study to assess this potential risk.Past studies hinted that antibiotics can cause lasting changes to the gut microbiome — the community of microbes that live in the digestive tract — and that these changes may be linked to a heightened risk of colon cancer. Now, in the largest epidemiological study to ever explore this link, researchers report that the heightened risk may be specific to cancers in the so-called proximal colon, the part of the colon that connects to the small intestine and starts in the lower-right abdomen.
'For any sticky knee and elbow pads, shin and mouth guards, and even helmets, prop them onto one of your dishwasher racks, add that baking soda and vinegar solution in a cup again, and run a hot cycle. Air dry this equipment and they'll come out looking brand new in no time!'
Washing and disinfecting toys reduces the spread of germs, making it safer for children playing. Even if you have a clean home, any toys lying around can collect dirt, pollen, dust mites and other undesirables. While it's important to wipe down toys regularly, the dishwasher detergent and blasts of hot water will do the disinfecting work for you.
'I would recommend cleaning your children's toys roughly every week, but if you have a toddler that isn't afraid to put them in their mouth, you should be washing them every one to two days, to make sure that your child isn't introduced to any unhealthy bacteria,' suggests Deyan.
'For any plastic or rubber toys, throw them into your dishwasher with that trusty homemade cleaning solution and run your usual hot cycle - to make sure that they're dried properly, you could even add on a steam clean if you have this setting!'

6. Beauty tools
Dermatologists and make-up artists recommend that we should be cleaning our beauty tools at least once a week to remove a build-up of greasy residue. It be seem easy to clean them by hand, but did you know you can also pop them in the dishwasher?
Deyan advises: 'Make sure you wash them briefly under cold water, to remove any clumps of makeup or hair, and pop them in your silverware basket. You could even add in any beauty tweezers, scissors and clippers to your load.
'The solution ofand baking soda will work wonders on these products - and don't be afraid to add a few drops of scented essential oils (such as a calming lavender smell) if you want to give yourself and your products some spa-level treatment.'
