Up until a few years ago, we had a tiny dishwasher. It was about 1/2 the size of a regular one.
With such a tiny dishwasher it was very evident that I would be washing a lot of dishes by hand — something that I am NOT fond of. However, with the remodel of our kitchen, we opted for a new, full-size dishwasher. This means I no longer need to wash a large amount of dishes by hand.
That leaves me with the valves and straws of my kids’ cups. Do I really want to run a sink of water, add soap, spend time washing and drying these tiny valves and straws? No. With the Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher Basket, I can put these tiny items into my dishwasher without having them fly around.
The Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher basket allows you to wash small parts like valves, straws and bottle nipples without worrying about them being destroyed by the washing arms or flung around your dishwasher.
Since the Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher basket has a narrow bottom, it can fit easily into your dishwasher. Mine fits nicely on the top rack right beside my glasses.
I love this basket for washing all of our smaller parts to our Playtex cups. It even comes in handy for smaller cooking tools that I use as well!
Do you have any dishwashing saving tips that you can share? I mean, let’s face it — we ALL could use a few extra minutes in the day.
