    Always up. It definitely cleans them better. I find if I put them down then I'll have to put a few back through. Especially spoons.

    I hope your mum is not rehanging your washing as well
    Haha! 😂 No, thank goodness. But when my MIL stays over she reorganises my kitchen. Takes us weeks to find things again!!

    I put mine all eating end down, but I think they would clean better if it was eating end up, but I don't want to get stabbed.

    Default serious question: which way does cutlery go in the dishwasher?

    Bit off topic but I have one of these too, and I think all spoons should go together, forks together, knives together, but DH just puts things in at random. Makes it easier to unpack if they're already in order - tell me I'm right on this one.

    Lol - we have this argument all the time but it's DH who is the neat one and puts them all in order!!! It does make better sense but I'm usually cleaning up the kitchen and just chuck everything in and he usually puts the stuff away so it bugs him more!!!

    Down! I have heard a horror story from a friend about someone tripping over the open dishwasher door and landing on a sharp knife and being injured.

    Safety first! Though hubby disagrees with me and think it all should go up so it gets cleaned better

    Our cutlery basket is low enough it allows part of the handle to sit above the edge so we put all like items together and just grab them out in a bundle below the eating part on the part of the handle that stands above the edge

    Don't get me started on this topic! lol

    Blades down but all else up and seperated into catergories and grab from the lowest possible part when removing.
