    Only problem I've ever had was with kids plastic cups and a plastic drink bottle I put in last week. It shrunk to a third of its original size! Melted in the heat (ours can go up 2 more past normal). Regular plastic stuff like tuppawear and chopping boards are fine.
    Where they melamine?
    I don't think your allowed to put melamine in dishwasher (most kids plates/cups etc are made from melamine)

    Just as a little idea - I put all the non squeezy bath toys through the dishwasher every now and then to clean them.

    I've only just got a dishwasher and I was hot water rinsing everything before I put it in...wasting hot water lol, so now I just give it a quick cold water rinse. I find I have to space the dishes otherwise they don't get cleaned properly and I don't stack things on top of each other either. I don't put in my oven trays as they seem to go all rusty and yuck. The rinse aide helps dry all the stuff but it's not neccessary...I just open the door and pull out the racks to air dry over night.

    I don't rinse anything and everything comes out clean even when jenga stacked. I guess that's the difference between different brands and their abilities.

    We have a crappy dishwasher and tablets have never worked well, no matter the brand. Cheap powder doesnt work well either. I buy Aldi's 'expensive' powder and it's the only thing that works.

    I don't rinse either, but do scrape well and wipe down greasy pans with a paper towel first. We're on tank water so no choice really and everything comes out well.

    Someone on here suggested still using rinse aid even with the 'all-in-one' tablets. I tried this and didn't find it made a difference with the drying but once the rinse aid ran out I noticed my mugs getting bits of crumbs left inside them so topped it up and problem gone. I have the dispenser set to its lowest setting but it does show that the all in ones (I use quantum) aren't quite that!

    Agree with the rinse aid, our plastics dry heaps better when using it. I use the woolies brand one.
    Also make sure you empty the filter regularly, helps the pump to last longer, found that out the hard way.

    I've noticed that anything with grease on it comes out with the powder stuck all over it - what's that about? You think it'd rinse properly. The tablets weren't disolving so I've been breaking them up beforehand, and only using half, but still anything oily comes out white. Really annoying.

    Will try wiping with paper towel - we're on tank water too & this never even occured to me to do. Thanks!
