I just take out the filter, scrub it w/ a dish cloth and some soap and then wash the rest just like you would a cup.

I have taken the filter out and the lid off and thrown all of it the dishwasher on the top rack. Never had any problems.

Same. I throw the filter into the silverware thing so it doesn’t get lost and the rest goes on the top rack.

I never thought to do that with the filter! What a great idea!

when i toss it in the dishwasher i put the filter in the silverware basket and take the lid & bottom thingy and cup part in the top rack (if it were on the bottom it would melt in our dishwasher…apparently we have super heated water lol)

I was wondering about it melting…ours would too! :P

well ive never had it melt…yet, but ive had dishwasher safe stainless steal and thick plastic cat food dishes break/crack/melt in our dishwasher even on the top so we tend to be wary lol

I take the filter out and carefully scrub it with a toothbrush. I don’t use liquid soap because it has a fragrance. Usually I use baking soda, but if the filter needs whitening I’ll sprinkle powdered dishwasher detergent (such as Cascade) on it. I don’t use chlorine bleach or chlorinated sink cleansers because chlorine degrades (weakens) plastics while it gets them white. I haven’t tried the dishwasher tips as posted here, but I reckon I’ll get around to that, because the toothbrush thing is time-consuming. Thanks for the help; with your advice, maybe I won’t melt anything! :)
