Today I want to share a tip for using your dishwasher. When we used to have a dishwasher and the weather was very hot, I would use the dishwasher as a drying rack. This way I would not use the electricity during the day to do a load of dishes. I would hand wash the dishes and put them in the dishwasher to air dry. It kept my counters clear of a bunch of dishes. This was especially nice when we would have company. It is also helpful when you have limited counter space.
