**You can achieve the same results by using a sponge with dishwashing soap to get the grease off your dishes BEFORE putting them in the dishwasher.**
Following the above, if you use hot water and rinse well after the sponging.. you can delete the entire dishwasher, completely.
You’ve already WASHED the damn things!!
“...You’ve already washed the damn things!”
