do you use dish tabs when washing toys in the dishwasher or just run them thru without anything?

mu hubby thinks i should just run them through without anything but i think they would be cleaner with dish tab..its safe enough for dishes why not toys? (plastic blocks, toy dishes, bath toys, ect the ones that are safe enough to put in water)

  • I would put the toys in, but mine's usually too full of dishes, LOL! I, too, would use the soap but if you're worried about it, run it through with vinegar instead of soap. Does the same thing, but less damaging :)

  • I would guess it would be ok. I mean, you eat off the dishes!

  • Yeah I would def use the tabs. I put my bottles and nipples in my dishwasher with soap. Hot water isn't enough

  • If the soap won't damage them I use soap...the thing does have a rinse cycle after all.

  • Oh, you're not that lazy, anonymous! Until I read this, I hadn't considered wahing toys at all.

    Good thing my kids are 20 and 17, eh?
