You’ll Be Happy to Know You Don’t Have to Spend Time on This Chore!
If you’re like us, you grew up being taught that you absolutely, positively must rinse your dirty dishes before you put them in the dishwasher. You were probably told that the dishes wouldn’t come as clean if you didn’t rinse them first, or that you’d use too much dishwashing detergent or water by making your dishwasher work harder to clean off all that stuck-on grime and food.
Well, it turns out that the conventional wisdom about pre-rinsing your dishes isn’t really true anymore. That’s because today’s dishwashers clean better and work more efficiently than older models, so in most cases your dishes will come clean even without pre-rinsing them. However, you will still need to scrape off any dirty food first!
