Is it dangerous to put plastic in the dishwasher?



  1. 0 Votes

    Many plastics are dishwasher safe and remain more stainfree than when hand washed. There are other types of plastics that are heat-sensitive and may melt and warp. Check care instructions on the plastic item. If in doubt, try one. Some may be labeled “top rack only” to keep them away from the heating element at the bottom of the tub. When the dry cycle is not used, they can usually be dishwasher washed if they are heavy enough to withstand the washing action without moving around in the tub.
