For an Eco-Friendly Clean with neat's All-in-One Dishwasher Tabs

It’s been a burning question in recent weeks: How to stack your dishwasher? So of course we’re going to tackle it here on the neat blog with an eco-friendly twist. We understand the importance of efficiency and planet-friendly choices in your daily routine. In this post, we'll delve into the often overlooked but crucial task of dishwasher stacking, sharing tips and tricks that not only ensure sparkling dishes but also contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle.

Plus, we'll introduce you to neat's latest innovation – the All-in-One Dishwasher Tabs – for a powerful, plant-based clean without the plastic waste.
  1. The Foundation: Pre-Rinse or not to Pre-Rinse - Let's address a controversial topic first: pre-rinsing. Contrary to what your grandma might say, your dishes don't need to be spotless before their disco in the dishwasher. So, save that water, honey! But, don't be lazy – scrape off excess food to keep things flowing smoothly.

Pro Tip: Opt for a biodegradable scraper to easily remove leftover bits without harming the environment. Check out our friend and fellow B Corp Seeps awesome range of eco friendly cleaning tools for the home.

  1. Strategically Place Large and Small Items: Effective dishwasher stacking is all about optimising space and water flow. Place larger items like pots, pans, and cutting boards along the sides and back of the bottom rack. This ensures they won't block water and detergent from reaching smaller items. Up top, create a VIP zone for cups, glasses, and tiny bowls. Angle them down, letting the water get into every nook and cranny. And guess what? Neat's All-in-One Dishwasher Tabs dissolve faster than your morning coffee, reaching even the sneakiest corners for a thorough clean.

  1. Mindful Dish Placement for a Balanced Load: - Load that dishwasher evenly. No one likes it lopsided. Make sure the taller items, like cups and glasses, don't block the spray arm – we want water reaching every dish. Top-rack plastic items? Give them the penthouse treatment, shielding them from the dishwasher's heating element. And fear not – neat's All-in-One Dishwasher Tabs are gentle on materials but bring the powerful cleaning moves.

Pro Tip: Stack bowls and plates in a slightly alternating fashion to maximize water exposure.

  1. Utilise Specialty Compartments: Most dishwashers come equipped with specialized compartments for utensils, ensuring they receive a thorough clean. Take advantage of these features by arranging utensils with space between them, avoiding nesting that can hinder the cleaning process.

Neat's All-in-One Dishwasher Tabs are designed to tackle tough stains and grime on utensils, ensuring they come out spotless and ready for use. No more streaky spoons!
