put it in the dishwasher

For some of you, this will be so obvious.  For others, your dish brush is dirty as fuck and you need to be reminded to run it through the dishwasher often. Dirty switch plates sparkle after a cycle in the dishwasher; ditto for vent covers.  Some folks recommend putting weird shit like shoes in the dishwasher, but that idea skeeves me out.  Experiment and broaden your notions about what “belongs” in the appliance, and save yourself significant time and effort in your cleaning routine.
