13 Items That Don’t Go in the Dishwasher

1. Wood


A wooden cutting board is the first thing that you should never put into your dishwasher. The reason for that is, the machine will get very hot and wet,and afterwards it will get cold and dry very quickly. This process can be extremely damaging for your wooden kitchen equipment and you risk having the wood warp or even lose its finish. This rule does not only apply for wooden cutting boards, but also any wooden kitchen utensils. When the wood starts to warp or even break within your machine it can damage your other tableware and even your machine. Our advice is to clean your wooden kitchen utensils and cutting boards by hand the moment that you stop using them. The sooner you do it the easier it will be.
