My mum is staying with us for a couple of days and she stacks cutlery in the dishwasher upwards- as in knives are blades up, forks are prongs up, etc. I thought cutlery should go down. She insists that she's got it right. So which one of us is right?

Knives blades down. Everything else up

My dishwasher has a cutlery tray so you lay them flat so I don't have that problem! But I would assume putting knives up would not be ideal as you would have to grab the blade to pull them out ( not that good knives should be put in the dishwasher!)

Mine go in whatever way I grab them of the plates. Some up, some down!

Up with sharp blades down. I have tried all down but they don't get fully cleaned.
I hope your mum is not rehanging your washing as well

Always up...don't want the blades to dig into the plastic holder thingy.

Forks, spoons etc up sharp knives down. Safety first.

I used to put everything up until dp managed to cut is hand open on a butter knife. Now spoons up and forks/knives down

I stack with the eating end up so as they clean and drain any residue goes to the handle not the part that goes in your mouth.

Everything down, so you just grab the handles and put them in the drawer. Otherwise wouldn't you be touching the eating end of the cutlery?
