Things You Can Put in the Dishwasher
Garden tools may have come in contact with pesticides or animals, so don’t mix them with a load of dishes. (And don’t wash those with wood handles.)
Light-fixture covers are fine in the top rack, as long as they’re not antique, enameled, or painted.
Potatoes can get nice and clean in the top rack with a rinse-only cycle (no detergent). Sound crazy? It makes mashed potatoes for 20 a lot quicker.
