Wash Baseball Caps And Thongs In Your Dishwasher

Your dishwasher is a great help in the kitchen, but it can be put to many more uses than just cleaning plates and saucepans. Real Simple suggests a few other items you can clean.

You can pop baseball caps in your dishwasher to get them cleaned with a minimum of fuss. And, if you’re tired of scrubbing footwear by hand, let the machine do the work:

Rain boots should have the liners removed and lie horizontally. Hook flip-flops on tines in the top rack. (FYI, Crocs are not dishwasher-safe.)

It’s not just clothing, either. If you ever need to wash a large number of potatoes, you dishwasher can help with that too. Just fill up the top shelf of the washer and run a cycle — just don’t use any detergent!
