  • No-the diswasher uses realy hot water-that kills any germs.

  • No. FYI, most germs cannot stay adhered to glass, ceramic or metal in the presence of soap or detergent. Scientists have even done experiments where they inoculated soap with TONS of e. coli, and after washing hands with it, there were no more germs on the inoculated soap-washed hands than with uninoculated soap-washed ones, and both had almost none.
