I dont see why it would be gross at all. I wash all my sons dishes in there.

I'm not sure why this is considered gross. I wash sippy's & baby bottles in the DW. It's cleaner then using a dirty sponge..right?

The dishwasher would actually get them cleaner than soap and water !

I hand-wash my kids stuff, just because Im a real germophobe & I dont feel like the dishwasher does as good of a job as I do.

i don't think it's gross but i don't feel it's safe. dishwashers use very hot water and that is where i have the problem. it is not just sippy cups but all plastics. i wash them by hand in cool water so as not to release toxic chemicals from the plastic to be leached into our food and drink. i don't heat any food in plastic in the microwave either. same reason. you've heard about the BPA in plastic baby bottles..... well it isn't just BPA or baby bottles. i'd rather be safe than sorry.

I wash all my kids cups in the dishwasher! I think they come out cleaner that way! Especially the little inserts that keep them from leaking!!! That's so strange that she thinks it's gross.

I don't see how it could be gross. I wash my dishes in there. Why not my daughter's too?
