It says dishwasher safe…have you!? If so…any tips!? Top rack!? Take apart or leave in tact!?
Other non-dishwasher methods!?
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.
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)
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! :)
Not had an issue with it yet six months later and it gets a good hammering pretty much on a daily basis.
I normally rinse it out after each use. If anything is stuck to it, or I used a very strong smelling tea, I may clean it with my volcano method: Baking soda and vinegar. If it has stuff stuck in it, sometimes I disassemble it and scrub everything. Every once in a while I do all these things then run it through the dishwasher (Top rack after removing the lid and I put the lid in the top rack too).
It’s usually pretty easy to keep it clean and I use it like crazy. I have two even.
