A dishwasher can do more than just get your pots, pans and dishes sparkling clean. These energy- and water-efficient machines can also naturally sanitize using hot water and detergent. Use the top rack to clean things like baseball caps, kids' toys, flip-flops and light fixture covers. Even switch plate covers, fan grills and vent covers (all covered in dust, dirt, grease and debris) can go right in. Using the rinse-only cycle is the best way to wash delicate items or to test something for how it does inside a dishwasher.
