Dishwasher tablets can help save you from the burden of hand washing dishes, but they also can do more for tough cleaning tasks that will shock you. In this post, I’ll share some other great uses dishwasher tablets have for cleaning that you may not be aware of.

Surprising Uses for Cleaning with Dishwasher Tablets

Since dishwasher tablets were created to handle hard water and stains besides just grease in foods, they are an excellent product for a variety of cleaning. However, it is always a good idea to wear your rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Toilet Cleaner: The next time that you plan to tackle the bathroom, you should start with the toilet. Drop a dishwasher tablet into the toilet bowl and let it work its magic while you clean the rest of the bathroom. By the time you finish, it will have enough time to help eliminate a hard water ring and make it sparkle again. For the ultimate clean, let the tablet stay in the bowl overnight before taking your toilet brush to it in the morning.

Oven Door: Use a dishwasher tablet like an eraser that you dip in some warm water to rub down the interior of a dirty oven door with baked on food and grease, including the glass. You’ll notice the food residue and grease melting away while scrubbing with less effort.

Burned Pots and Pans: Have you ever scorched a pot so badly that you were ready to toss it? If so, you may want to try using a dishwasher tablet dipped again with a little bit of warm water and rubbing it against the burnt damage. It does seem to perform miracles for rescuing a pot that seemed like a hopeless cause.

Kitchen Sink: A dishwasher tablet is a wonderful cleaner for your kitchen sink. Remember to use your gloves when you drop one in a sink with warm water and scrub the sides and bottom. This helps buff out food stains and tiny scratches to give the sink new life.

Garage Oil Spills: If your car leaked some oil, try wiping away the oil the best that you can to prep it for treatment. Wet the cleaned surface before scrubbing with a dishwasher tablet can help resolve that problem. Depending on how large the spot is, you may need several tablets to combat the stain.

Clean Walls: You can freshen up dirty walls using a dishwasher tablet dissolved in a bucket with some hot water to wipe them down. Walls will be cleaner and brighter afterwards.
